Courtney is a total show-off.  She thinks she’s so brave, and she’s always making Eddie and his friends look like wimps.  But Eddie’s had enough.  He’s going to scare Courtney once and for all.  And he’s just come up with the perfect plan.  He’s going to lure her down to Muddy Creek.  Courtney believes that silly rumor about Mud Monsters that live in the creek.

Too bad Eddie doesn’t believe the rumors.  Because it just might be true… (publisher’s summary)

Here’s what The Girl (age 10) thought about R.L. Stine’s You Can’t Scare Me! (IndieBound, Amazon):

This book was okay.  It was a little slow for my tastes.  But I did like the end.  It had a nice strong ending.  It was only okay because I didn’t find it scary.  My favorite scene was when Eddie and his friends tried to drop a tarantula on Courtney’s head.  My least favorite scene was when Eddie and Herbie were trapped in the science room.  The scene had suspense, but it was a little long.  If you’re looking for a creepy story, I would choose a different Goosebumps book.

Disclosure: We received a copy of You Can’t Scare Me! from Scholastic. My mom is an an IndieBound affiliate and an Amazon associate.
