Publisher's Summary

Watch the movies, listen to the audiobooks! The Fear Street movies are coming to Netflix this summer!

Generations of children and teens have grown up on R.L. Stine's best-selling and hugely popular horror series, Fear Street and Goosebumps. Now, the Fear Street series is back with a chilling new installment, packed with pure nightmare fodder that will scare Stine's avid fan base of teen listeners and adults. In The Dead Boyfriend, he tells the frightening tale of teenage love - and how it can go terribly, murderously wrong.

Caitlin has never had a real boyfriend before. When she starts seeing Colin, she throws herself into the relationship with fervor. She ignores her friends who warn her that Colin may be a phony and that she is taking the whole thing too seriously. Caitlin is smitten. She doesn’t care if she loses her friends. All she wants is Colin.

When Caitlin approaches Colin with another girl, she completely loses it. She snaps. Everything goes red. When she comes back to her senses, she realizes that Colin is dead - and she has killed him. But if Colin is dead, how is he staring at her across a crowded party?

Terrifying from the first page to the last, The Dead Boyfriend is a heart-racing young adult novel from the master of teen screams himself.

Stine at the top of his game.

I was introduced to R.L. Stine by watching Goosebumps with my kids. His plots are ingenious and his characters well-developed and believable. Stine is, in my opinion is, the Stephen King of books for young people--even better than King when he is at the top of his game.

Brittany Pressley does a fine job narrating the story. I highly recommend this book to horror fans of all ages.

Not my favorite

I wished there was more of the boyfriend story line. I was kind of disappointed in his line and how his character appeared. otherwise, it was a good book.
