Book review: Return to Fear Street--You May Now Kill the Bride

This book was really good--I devoured it in a night. 

Without spoiling anything, it starts in the 1920's with a Fear family wedding. Fast forward to the present day, and Harmony Fear is preparing for her sister's wedding. As the ramifications of that day almost a hundred years ago loom over another Fear family wedding, can Harmony break her family's curse? And solve the mystery surrounding her family's past? 

Overall, it was the quick "cheap thrill" kind of read that Stine is known for...nothing too graphic or horrifying. Would definitely recommend to my YA readers. 

What interested me most is Stine's portrayal of sisters. I don't have one, so I can't say this with authority, but he seems to write the nuances of sisterhood really well, capturing both the closeness and the competition/jealousy that so many sisters seem to share. Would be interested to hear what others think.

Also, the cover art is amazing. Everything down to the worn-out edges to the font to the colors is absolutely perfect. 

Anyway, 4/5 stars, do recommend (especially if you like tropey light horror).
