Ever since a car accident killed her father and put Lisa and her mother into the hospital, Lisa can't think straight. She's plagued by nightmares and hallucinations that force her to relive the accident over and over again in vivid detail. When Lisa finds out that a neighbor is looking for a babysitter for her young son, she takes the job immediately, eager to keep busy and shake these disturbing images from her head.
But what promised to be an easy gig turns terrifying when Lisa begins to question exactly who — or what — she is babysitting.
R.L. Stine makes his triumphant return to Shadyside in the new Fear Street book Don't Stay Up Late.
Review: Another great story from R.L. Stine. I really like this relaunch because it takes me back to when I was a kid reading the Fear Street Series.
Lisa takes a job babysitting after dealing with a horrific accident that kills her father and puts both her and her mother in the hospital. Coming home she has a hard time deciphering what is real and what is in her head. To prove to herself and everyone else that she's ok, she takes a the job babysitting. The kids cute and all but things aren't exactly what they seem.
The plot takes all sorts of twists and turns, keeping you on your toes. I found myself swept up in Lisa's turmoil as her life is turned upside down. The ending held both surprises and expected outcomes. Over all I really enjoyed the book and look forward to more from Mr. Stine.
