Then Lee receives a good luck charm in the mail. It's a vulture's claw and Lee's life seems to change immediately. Until bad things start to happen. The vulture's claw is bringing really bad luck.

My Take on the Book
This was a great addition to the Goosebumps series. If you like to have a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and at the same time send a chill up your spine this is definitely one to read. As a father of a girl who loves these books, I gave this book to my eldest daughter and I have to say that I was amazed to see how quickly she devoured the book. Usually she will dabble and move from one book to another, but this was one book that she did not want to put down. When I picked it up I saw why. The book was well written with a plot that captured your attention and kept you engaged form beginning to end. This was a great book and one that I would highly recommend.
