Publisher's Summary

Johanna Wise longed to be a part of the rich popular clique at Shadyside High School. When Dennis Arthur, the star of the track team and one of the most popular guys in school, asks Johanna out it is a dream come true. They seem to have so much in common as they joke about school and creative ways to get rid of their least favorite teacher, Mr. Northwood. When Dennis dares her to actually kill Mr. Northwood Johanna jokingly says yes. The problem is that the entire school is taking her seriously - including Dennis. Now she risks losing Dennis and her new popular friends if she doesn't go through with the dare. But can Johanna really kill for love?

R.L. Stine has become a phenomenon. He has written over three dozen mysteries and thriller for young people and is reported to have outsold John Grisham.

Overall fine

Christina Moore does a decent job at voice acting for the characters with the material she has to work with. She emotes well. I dislike how the story isn't broken up by the actual chapters but into three parts. There are also some odd audio lags and spaces. I think this needs a little technical work to improve accessibility.

The story itslef is what you'd expect from Fear Street cliffhangers at the end of chapters to keep you reading, gore and suspense, and a reasonably good story. I dislike that the Johanna keeps falling into describing her fantasies so much. It doesn't work here and sort of makes the book feel padded. Johanna as a character suffering from depression and needing approval is a good character and her motives make sense with the other characters.

Overall a good story but it feels padded in places and the ending feels like it wraps up a little too quickly.
