Stine has three hundred more books to write before the end of the year. Lucy leads Nicole to the Changing Wall, which is the worst name for a thing possible, because her granddad was besties with the Fear Street Cemetery cryptkeeper who knew all the juicy gossip. When they get back up, Lucy is Nicole and Nicole is Lucy. Nicole flips out and does not call the police or an adult or tell anyone what happened. Kent, unsurprisingly, does not really believe her, and after hearing her story calls the police on her.
Nicole is kind of upset about this development, and she runs to her house to find Lucy. She wants to switch bodies back and let Lucy handle this problem. K, Lucy, totally sweet confession note. This girl did not even care.
Switched: Fear Street
Nicole is understandably freaked out by this and she runs the heck away as the police come to chase her. They try to stop Nicole from leaving. You know something fishy is up now because everyone keeps calling her Nicole even when they immediately see her. Nicole thinks this means Lucy is just telling everyone they switched bodies which is not something you should do if you murdered someone and then switched bodies to get away with it.
Nicole continues trying to track down Lucy, the bodies are starting to pile up, and the two detectives keep chasing her. Because it turns out no one was murdered at all! Lucy died three years ago in a car accident! They thought she was better, but apparently whatever therapy they put her through did not have lasting effects. I tore a fingernail while getting dressed for school this morning and burst into tears.
No GAP t-shirts or high tops this time around, but this story was more about the plot and not really about cool teens doing cool teen things.
