Chrissy was known as the best baby sitter Amandas sister and brother loved herand so did the rest of the town but Amanda had a feeling there was somethingwrong with her. So Amanda started asking around to see if Chrissie was bad ornot. It took long but she found out about her reacent babysitttings from herfriend heather and found out that Amanda would kill any animals of yours stealtoys and it is rumored that she killed some of the kids she babysat. Amanda wasgoing crazy and it was the second week since Christie has been babysitting hersister and brother and Amanda noticed her cat was missing she then searched allaround for it. She couldnt find her cat for two days and started saying thatChrissy killed her cat and not to many people believed her. Two days later whileAmanda was telling everyone about the cat incident and Chrissy walked up withthe cat and she said ” Oh if you were wondering where your cat was I sent itto the vet. Amanda regretted ever thinking Chrissy was a bad person until shefound her cat dead and her sister with scars all over her head, arms legs andshe couldnt find her brother. To find who killed Amandas cat and scarred herand where her brother is read this great book written by R.L. Stine. I reallyliked this book a lot because it made me keep wanting to read on and it made methink certain things and then they just went a different way. For example whenAmanda said Chrissy killed her cat I believed that Chrissy did kill her cat.

This book also had a lot of suspense and was scary at times. I would recommendthis book to kids between the ages of 10- 14.
