free read Beyond author Graham McNamee ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Jane is not your typical teen She and her best friend Lexi call themselves the Creep Sisters Only Lexi knows why Jane is different So back when I was a sweet little tween I was easily freaked out by Fear Street books and the like especially the Cheerleader series CREEPED ME OUT I wouldn t go showering after games at the gym is noone was around any the girl dying because of boiling shower and steam still haunts me And though I don t really read or watch scary stuff much these days I figured this would get me back to those days in which I LOVED themUnfortunately it didn t uite work out that way for me You see the whole time I was reading it I felt like I should be scared of everything happening but I never really felt it myself Maybe it was because I never really connected to Jane and didn t feel the horror she must have been experiencing I didn t feel much of anything while reading this book except for a mild curiosity about how it would all endJane and Lexi seemed like a good team friendwise though I was kinda annoyed that they also seemed to be taking this whole Jane almost being killed by her shadow multiple times less seriously than I would have liked I mean I couldn t get over the fact that they waited till the fourth time before starting to investigate it Don t we have internet for this I get not wanting to tell her parents for fear they d lock her away but not even wondering who or what was doing that to her seemed sorta naive Especially after the last nail in head incident And I kinda wanted to shake Jane right before the big moment in which you can see from miles away SOMETHING BAD is going to happen I mean seriously That was SO predictable And the whole unraveling of the who what and where of things was a bit too convenient for me I did think that the ghost part of the who and why of it was pretty interesting and I just wish I had felt involved with the story I think the main reason why I finished it was that it was a uick read and I knew it wouldn t take hours of my life to stick with it It wasn t badly written for me there just wasn t a connection and because of that no sense of fear which is kinda what you need for a book that s supposed to be creepy I m assuming things here I could be wrong My rating 2 stars
