Seventeen-year-old Maggie Travers used to sleep very well at night, until she slept in the old-fashioned canopy bed for the first time. At first, Maggie couldn't believe her luck. When the family moved out of the house, they left a beautiful old-fashioned canopy bed in the room that was now hers. But when Maggie goes to sleep underneath the pretty pink canopy, she has a bad dream-a nightmare that jars her awake with her own piercing scream. Every night from then on, she relives the dream...watching as the same girl cries out for help...feeling helpless, as the girl is murdered before her eyes. Is her dream just a nightmare or is someone trying to warn her about a terrible danger lurking in her new home? R. L. Stine has become a phenomena. He has written over three dozen mysteries and thrillers for young people and is reported to have outsold John Grisham.

"R.L. Stine likens his books to "a roller coaster ride . . . fast and exciting." If that's the case, Bad Dreams is a bad ride. Seventeen-year-old Maggie's nightmarish dreams of mayhem seem to be coming true. However, the plot is predictable, the character development minimal and the dialogue uninteresting. Alyssa Bresnahan's reading is precise and slowly paced. She's best at the bored teenaged tone ("Mommm!"). Unfortunately, the popularity of these little thrillers and Recorded Books' reputation for impeccable choice and flawless recordings will make this a popular audio selection. L.R.S.
