A stanger in the night.

From the minute Jenny accepted the Hagen baby-sitting job, she knew she had made a mistake.

First there was the dark and siheveled Hagen house, moaning and groaning with her every step. Then the crank phone calls started. "Hi Babes. Are you all alone? Company's coming."

When Jenmny discovered a creepy neighbor prowling in the backyard and a threatening note in her backpack, she realized this wasn't a harmless game.

But who would want to hurt her? What kind of maniac wanted to scare Jenny...to death?

Babysitter by: R.L. Stine. It's about this girl named Jenny that finally gets a babysitting job that she likes except the fact that she is in this big scary house and she keeps on getting these phone calls saying company is coming! What made me read this book is it looked like a good book and I like scary books. I would recommend this book to any teenager that likes scary books. Or kids that are mature and also like scary stories. What was good about the book were the characters because I can relate to Jenny in a lot of ways because I am scared of being in a big scary house by myself. One of the quotes was, "I hate being in this big scary house by myself. I wish somebody was here with me." Jenny said. I also liked how they described the setting because it made the book sound scarier. Another quote was, "The house was dark and scary-looking and one of the shingles on the window was banging up against the house." There wasn't really anything that I didn't like about this book.
I loved this book because it kept me wanting to read it to find out what happens next. I would recommend this book to any teenager or any kid that is mature and that loves scary stories.

From the cover - From the minute Jenny accepted the Hagen baby-sitting job, she knew she had made a mistake.

When Jenny discovered a creepy neighbor prowling in the backyard and a threatening note in her backpack, she realizes this wasn't a harmless game.

But who would want to hurt her? What kind of maniac wanted to scare Jenny... to her death?
