Usually I finish one of these books in like a day which is super fast for me but this one took a bit longer. I think this series may have run its course since it has gone on for quite some time now. I could totally be wrong but I'm thinking this is probably one of the longest series out there if not the longest series. The books are short and they are ridiculous. Now that I think about it this was probably my second exposure to Young Adult. I came to a crazy conclusion today. Aside from a few odds and ends it wasn't really until like ten years ago that I actually regularly read young adult books. I just couldn't get into his Goosebumps series although I did watch the show.
I did yell at this book because it was ridiculous but I just felt that something was off while I was reading this book. Lisa moves to Shadyside with her parents and spoiler alert her father gets killed. After that she starts hallucinating or does she? At first you're not sure about that but later on it later gets revealed that the kid she's been babysitting is a freaking demon that kills and eats people. I was able to finish because like I said Fear Street is my crack but that's just insane and that's saying something compared to the other books. I also didn't like how it was implied that the so called crazy girl of course is going to be the killer. Having depression, anxiety etc doesn't make you a psychotic killer. Last night on Criminal Minds a guy that was abused by his evil father was out killing people while he was sleepwalking. What the fuck?
I yelled at this book because Lisa was so stupid. Bitch take a picture of the creatures in the basement. Also it probably helps you learn that if you're offered a job that's paying a hella lot that something funky might be afoot. Sure three hundred bucks a week to watch a kid sounds appealing but not so much when there's a Gremlins situation where the kid rips apart and eats people that happen to be in the wrong place at the same time. I don't blame Lisa for taking the job. That's my food and necessities for the month that she's getting paid each week. The other sitter clearly was driven mad so she was locked up but it was seriously fucked up for Brenda to be more than willing to kill the babysitter that found out the truth about her son. Bitch your son kills and eats people and you want to kill the girl who found out about it? In what world does that make sense? So of course Harry shows up at Lisa's new job because this world is all shades of fucked up. I liked it but I didn't get as much enjoyment as I have from other books by this guy. Come on Evil Cheerleaders are hilarious but this was a little flat.
