I received this book from the publisher to review honestly
The Lost Girl is part of the Fear Street relaunch, and to be honest, it's the first I've read of the relaunch. But I have been a massive fan of Fear Street since I was nine, I own most the original books and was so freaking excited when I found out more were coming out. Don't get me wrong, I love Goosebumps too, but Fear Street is so much better in my opinion.
Onto the review. If you've read any Fear Street books then you know they all follow the same kind of formula, not a bad thing though, it made me super nostalgic. That's where this book, and I assume the rest of the relaunch, gets you. The nostalgia. Reading this I wasn't my scared nine-year-old self, but I was a little on edge and, mostly, it was just so much fun.
The Lost Girl is very similar to old Fear Street books, but, sadly, it's not nearly my favorite. It jumps between two timelines which felt weird. The old mystery, the killing, the gore, was all still there along with the supernatural like twist common in Fear Street books, but this one kind of lost me, interest wise, with the time jumping.
Overall: There's not much to say about this. If you love Fear Street then you'll want to read this for the nostalgia alone. It's not outstanding, but it's exactly what Fear Street has always been. It's a new old friend, you know? And I had lots of fun reading it and will definitely pick up the rest of the relaunch books.
Would I Recommend This? Yes.
Who To? Fear Street fans.
Will I read more from this author(or series)? Um, why is this question here?
Were you more a Goosebumps or Fear Street fan? Also, if you could pick one series from when you were little to "relaunch" what would it be?
