The killer wants to strike at Halloween and see Martha dead Who is he Overall professionally and well written, okay a bit tedious in the middle of the book, but to my taste a bit too youth orientated It was like watching one of those teen horror movies I m a bit through with that genre If you don t mind Trick or Treat is certainly worth a second look as there definitely are some eerie moments and stunning twists This Point Horror has a great set up, but with the main protagonist Martha being really annoying I also the second of the novel not really paying off, this seemed like a miss hit by

Not too much to say except for the most part this was enjoyable The book drags at times and the character development beyond a few people wasn t really there, but this was a good representation of young adult horror books from the late 80s 90s.So Trick or Treat follows 16 year old Martha Martha s father has recently got married and is now moving him and Martha to move in with his new wife and his stepson in the town of Bedford Martha hates the scary old house that they move into, and when she finds out that almost a year ago Halloween day to be exact a young girl was murdered in her bedroom, she s ready to move back to Chicago A voice keeps calling Martha and saying Trick or Treat and telling her she s going to die So Martha at times I thought was bratty I get it though Her father got married without even telling her and moved her and him from Chicago to a small town in the middle of nowhere The house is a mess, her stepmother can t cook, and her father then rushes off to Hawaii for an assignment and dumps the kids alone I did laugh a few times how often it s mentioned the parents haven t called I know this book was written in 1989, but seriously though, I can t imagine my parents taking a weeks long trip and not calling the house once Martha is kind of hysterical though and tries to do some amateur sleuthing with her new stepbrother Conor when things keep happening in their home Conor is kind of annoying I thought, and at times it seems as if Cusick was implying that Martha had a crush on him and vice versa Probably because Martha keeps calling Conor her stepbrother and correcting anyone that called him her brother Martha makes friends with the Chambers family which consists of Blake, Wynn, and Greg Greg is a teacher at Bedford and hangs out way too much with his teen cousins, Blake and Wynn So outside of these three people, Martha and Conor don t interact with anyone else in the town I got a creepy vibe from Blake and from Greg too Who hangs out with teens and tells one of them how pretty they are The parents are barely developed beyond being selfish and we hear third hand accounts about the girl who was murdered and her ex boyfriend who stands accused of killing her who disappeared.I thought the writing was a bit disjointed in parts and the flow needed to be a bit cleaned up That said, this is a different type of book and I rated it based on that Young me who read this at the age of 9 the age this was published would probably have been scared to death the whole time and had nightmares for weeks.The setting of Bedford was definitely creepy and hearing about the backstory of the Bedford family and the young girl who was murdered really set the mood for the book I wish that Cusick had given usdetails on Bedford I am still puzzled if this is in the mid west or not I also wanted to knowabout other people in the town adults, kids, etc There was bare bones with regards to developing this past enough to keep readers engaged with Martha s story.The ending was a surprise to me though and kind of gruesome I think it definitely echoes the types of YA horror that was coming out that time though This is a milestone for me.My first YA Point Horror read ever I have a fewPoint Horror s and other YA horror books to read and I am definitely looking forward to reading them.I am in my 40 s so not really the intended audience for this story and I read the book within this context It is YA I am middle aged So why read these books Well, for a start they have fantastic covers I find these books during my book hunting and they leap out at me Finding old horror books is rare so I will g This is a milestone for me.My first YA Point Horror read ever I have a fewPoint Horror s and other YA horror books to read and I am

Well, for a start they have fantastic covers I find these books during my book hunting and they leap out at me Finding old horror books is rare so I will grab these off the shelf They are people s favourite books of their youth and opened up the world of horror to them I am curious to read these YA books which I did not experience as a YA.After reading this book the biggest reason for doing so is this.Time Travel.When reading this book I felt like I was travelling through time to my YA youth It took me back to my younger self I can just imagine my YA self interacting with the characters.Martha s dad has just remarried to Sally who has a son, Connor He is around Martha s age but they are not the best of friends The new family move into a isolated house which is in the middle of the woods, has a cemetery out back and has a recent nasty incident haunting it which the local community know about It is also a few days from Halloween.Martha receives threatening phone calls, finds a scarecrow hanging outside her bedroom and is being stalked A creepy, spooky, haunted mystery which reminded me of the Halloween movie Who is this Michael Myers type of killer A great YA read I wish they still made audiobooks like this it felt like was listening to a movie I listened to Trick or Treat on YouTube link here and I was enthralled I have never listened to an audiobook where nearly 9 different voice actors are included and sound effects such as rain, music, bells, and birds were used If you love YA Horror, you need to grab a pair of headphones and listen to Trick or Treat now Richie is a wonderful writer and the actors, tho I wish they still made audiobooks like this it felt like was listening to a movie I listened to Trick or Treat on YouTube link here and I was enthralled I have never listened to an audiobook where nearly 9 different voice actors are included and sound effects such as rain, music, bells, and birds were used If you love YA Horror, you need to grab a pair of headphones and listen to Trick or Treat now Richie is a wonderful writer and the actors, though a little cheesy, were believable and kept me wanting to carry on with the story One thing you have to remember going to these The Point Horror Tapes is that they were recorded in the 90 s But I still enjoyed this one I will be listening tosince there are about fiveon that youtube page I love 90 s YA horror, I wish authors still came out with stuff like this, some do, but it s rare I loved the suspense in this book and the ending was awesome R.D In my opinion, this was not Mrs Cusick s best novel I did enjoy the descriptions of the weather I m a huge fan of meteorology Weather descriptions especially Fall and Winter in books really set the mood and place me there I ll postlater.
