The Haunter (Goosebumps Most Wanted Special Edition #4)
Just past midnight, he feels a cold tingle at the back of his neck. The cold seeps down, a heavy chill he has never felt before. Soon, his whole head feels like a block of ice. He's about to scream-but the cold feeling vanishes. Sammy doesn't realize that he has just met The Haunter, and that his nightmares are only just beginning.
This book had a particularly good class setting. There were a variety of students, such as Shamequa whose father has an unusual amount of ghost hunting equipment at hand and who is simply described as having "brown skin and straight black hair". Buzzy is a supportive best friend, and Rubin is devious. No obvious moves like swirlies or pantsing for him-- he sneakily has Sammy sit in a chair on which his cat has peed. Much more realistic... and much more evil.
This is a special edition of the Goosebumps: Most Wanted series, and the best part of this series is that they don't have to be read in order. Some are reworkings of previous Goosebumps books, and there has been quite a resurgence of interest in Stine's work after the 2015 movie. You won't have to hand this to readers-- they will be haunting the shelves to find the newest fright!
