I really enjoyed this book. Although I figured out that Hannah was the real ghost very early in the book, I enjoyed the process she went through to realize that, and her figuring out that she needed to help save Danny's life. ( )

## There's a strange new kid on the block....

Hannah's had a lonely summer vacation: Her friends are gone, too busy to answer her letters, and her small town's just about empty of things to do. About the only thing to do is keep her little brothers company around the campfire, until a boy named Danny suddenly appears living next door. Hannah's quick to make friends, but something about Danny just isn't quite right: He seems to come and go, disappearing at a moment's notice, almost as if he were a ghost....

Like any Goosebumps book, things aren't quite what they seem. Dark shadows start to haunt Hannah, intent on taking her out of the story. The Ghost Next Door is a finely-structured, classic ghost story. It's not quite scary, but rather thrilling. The mystery of the ghost's purpose and identity unravels in a really clever way. (Hint: The Ghost Next Door was the most prominent influence on the 2015 Goosebumps movie starring Jack Black!)

It's hard to discuss the plot without spoiling it. Rather than hinging on a last-page twist as most Goosebumps books do, the ghost plot goes through some shocking turns at the halfway point, completely changing the story's direction. It's not a major mystery, but is really satisfying to figure out regardless, and makes the Ghost Next Door one of R.L. Stine's most mature Goosebumps yarns.

This book is about a girl named Hannah who is enjoying her summer vacation. One day in the early summer a boy named Danny moves in next door. Hannah told Danny about the screams coming from the other neighbors house. Danny didn't really believe her until one night he heard the screaming. The problem in this book is when they sneak into the neighbors house and find a scary ghost downstairs. They ran behind the ghost and tried to warn the person who lived there. But did anyone live there? Hannah always saw a man coming out, but now she wondered if it was a real man or ghost. I liked this book because it was very exciting and I kept wondering if there was a man or a ghost. I would recommend this book to people who are really interested in ghost and mysteries. ( )

Goosebumps. This is the series that kept me reading through my childhood. More than any other series, Goosebumps kept me interested in reading, and R.L. Stein is a wonderful children's writer. I applaud his efforts, and can't express enough my gratitude for the series. ( )
