As with all the goosebump books, the targeted audience is younger children to early teens. For this age group, the writing is simple and believable, with R L Stein taking on the narration through a 12 year old girl. The girl's character is mostly believable and I found that I was able to connect to her. The other characters had traits that made them relatable as well; I found the character development to be quite good.
The story isn't very scary, though it was extremely surprising with a twist ending. Once you realize what is going on in the story, you may feel the desire to reread; and if you do, you'll find hints dropped along the whole story that could have led you to the conclusion. The climax was super exciting, especially for me when I was a child.
Though many books of the goosebumps series are great, this is one book that I absolutely recommend. It's well written, unpredictable, and surprising in the best way. It's also a pretty short read, which doesn't drag on.

My parents also didn't have a lot of heartache with buying me a new book because these are relatively inexpensive (in the neighborhood of 3-5 bucks each).
R.L. Stine's "Goosebumps" books aren't scary, just kind of creepy. There aren't graphic descriptions of murder and mayhem. Just some ghosts, werewolves, or potions. The main character is alive in the end, and the final chapter resolves everything.
**Keep in mind, R.L. Stine has other books that aren't in the "Goosebumps" series that tend to be a little harsher when it comes to hauntings and plot. They are written more for the 12-14 age group and are longer (around 150-200 pages).
Hannah got very frighten when she found out she had next door neighboors without her noticing they moved in one summer day.Hannah family wasn't there so she couldn't talk out her problems with her family about her new next door neighboor.
If I were in the character's shoes I would go home and not wander around like Hannah did.
I really enjoyed this book because I like the way R.L.Stine used alot of discrivtive words.That helped me understand the book and visualize what was going on.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes scary and horror books like this one.
