Review: The 12 Screams of Christmas


The 12 Screams of Christmas
The 12 Screams of Christmas by R.L. Stine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



REVIEW:

This R. L. Stine Goosebumps was a huge thrill as most of them are. It is wonderful that this story of Kate's crosses over into the Christmas season. It is unbelievable that Kate can see the dead, and that causes her to get made fun of a lot of course. Once the story moves over into Kate's actual interactions with the ghosts I kept tensing up because you never know if the book's hero is going to save the day or join the dead in these world famous Goosebumps books.

Goosebumps' spook & surprise has kept teens & preteens hooked for a few decades now and this latest installment does not disappoint. Kate kept me tense and flipping pages wondering if she was going to make it through. I wanted to choke the Courtney character myself a few times. I was given this book to provide an honest review of.

True Goosebumps fashion. Scary, teen / preteen appropriate, nail biting, chill factor all present & accounted for!


BOOK DESCRIPTION:

The infamous, Most Wanted Goosebumps characters are out on the loose and after you. For the first time ever, it's a Goosebumps Christmas!

Kate Welles doesn't want to be special. She just wants to play the lead in her school's Christmas play. Her annoying "friend" Courtney is constantly getting in the way of that. Can you even call someone a "friend" if all they do is make fun of you and ruin everything all of the time? But Kate has to get along with Courtney or else neither of them will be allowed to take part in The 12 Screams of Christmas.

Kate and Courtney's teacher decides they need to find a special place to rehearse. A certain house with a special history. The kind of place that Kate would normally be pretty frightened to go into. The kind of place that gives new meaning to the term: Christmas Spirit.
