The Dead Boyfriend – R. L. Stine

Caitlin has never had a real boyfriend before. When she starts seeing Colin, she throws herself into the relationship with fervor. She ignores her friends who warn her that Colin may be a phony and that she is taking the whole thing too seriously. Caitlin is smitten. She doesn’t care if she loses her friends. All she wants is Colin. When Caitlin approaches Colin with another girl, she completely loses it. She snaps. Everything goes red. When she comes back to her senses, she realizes that Colin is dead – and she has killed him.

But if Colin is dead, how is he staring at her across a crowded party? – Goodreads.com

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

R. L. Stine hasn’t lost his touch since I last read the Goosebumps series (not even going to mention how long ago that was!).

The Dead Boyfriend is just as creepy and magical as ever, full of murder, magic and mystery. I think I will have to get my hands on more of the Fear Street Relaunch books.

Characters are twisted, people who die don’t seem to stay dead and there are plenty of dark plot lines.
