You Can't Scare Me takes place in a small town and the characters are teenagers. Courtney and Eddie are enemies. Courtney was always trying to embarrass and scare Eddie. Eddie then tries to get revenge. The book tells the story of Eddie's scheme to lure Courtney to Muddy Creek to be frightened by the monsters who are supposed to live there. Does this prank work? Are there monsters in Muddy Creek? You'll just have to find out for yourself. Maybe it is not always a good thing to believe what you hear.

This book is great and is just as good as the other Goosebumps books I've read. My favorite part was when Eddie and his friend, Hat dropped a tarantula off the balcony in the gym. The tarantula dropping happened before the Muddy Creek prank. The exciting events like the earthquake and rubber snake were funny and sometimes scary, but Eddie and Courtney never seemed to change. They were still typical teenagers after every prank and most of the things that happened would definitely not happen to me.

I hope you read this book because I think you'll like the action in every chapter. You wouldn't want to choose this book if you frighten easily and don't like mysterious events.
