Brad whines. He fights. He does terrible things with his boogars. Andrew is tired of his little brother. But when their family moves to the strange city of Chills Hills and Brad goes to a new babysitter, he comes back . . . different. Almost robotic. All he wants to do now is chores and homework. Mom and Dad think he’s just growing up. But Andrew knows something is very wrong, and it all started on that day at Mrs. Dritch’s house. There is dark magic at work here. His investigation leads him closer and closer to the truth . . . but also into the heart of danger.
I enjoyed reading this book, it brought me back to when I would read Goosebumps or Fear Street, this was a fun spooky story. The character of Andrew worked perfectly as the main character, I really felt for him and enjoyed reading him figure out what was happening to the children of Chillz Hillz. I look forward to the next book in the series to see where this is going but overall this was a really good first part.
5 out of 5 stars
