R.L. Stine's Fear Street series is back, and 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.

Caitlin is often described as spontaneous, so when she sees a boy looking at her across the diner, of course she’s going to go talk to him. Little does she know that Blade will change her life forever.
This book has so many plot twists that you never see coming and like any R.L. Stine book, it has an amazingly scary ending that leaves you with so many questions. I’m really enjoying the Fear Street relaunched novels, each containing a different story but all set in the same neighbourhood, which is really cool! Each book gets better and better and I hope he continues to write more. A really fun and quick read. Rating 3.5 out of 5 stars.
