Anything for a sister. Abby would do anything to be in the school's most exclusive sorority. And now she's got the chance. Because the sorority sisters have asked her to join them. All Abby has to do is get through the initiation. That might be a problem. Because this year, the initiation is going to be.... Murder.

    Abby is eager to join the Tri Gams, the most exclusive sorority at Rockland State. She says most girls would kill to get into this sorority. They pledge ten girls a year and it's an honor to be asked. After Abby attends a pledge meeting, Andrea, the president of the Tri Gams, says that when they become members they should be members for life. So, to make sure they will be loyal to the Tri Gams for life they ask their pledges to commit a crime. One day the pledges are driven to a dark, old, desert Abby is eager to join the Tri Gams, the most exclusive sorority at Rockland State. She says most girls would kill to get into this sorority.

After Abby attends a pledge meeting, Andrea, the president of the Tri Gams, says that when they become members they should be members for life. So, to make sure they will be loyal to the Tri Gams for life they ask their pledges to commit a crime. One day the pledges are driven to a dark, old, deserted mansion far from town. Once they are there Andrea gives them instructions for the crime they will commit. Most of the pledges think this is a joke. But after the crime is committed they are not so sure. This book was just okay and sometimes annoying. There were many irritating and unlikable characters (especially the sorority girls/pledges). Only Nina and Jessie were slightly bearable. The boy (Gordon) that the girls were fighting for was an unwashed slob. I couldn't figure out what they saw in him. I'm sure there had to be better guys on campus. Halfway through the book it got somewhat interesting. A so-so read.

    Wow, this was just crappy. The story was boring, nothing really happened, the girls (and Gordon) were highly annoying and then we also have POVs switching in the middle of the story. Which was really annoying. One moment we would have Abby, then suddenly switch to Nina and even one time we switched to Leila. I hate it when this happens. I don't mind if it is clearly said, or when it is done at the beginning of a chapter, but now? No. I don't like how we had two plots. Abby's x Leila x Gordon and Wow, this was just crappy.

Abby's x Leila x Gordon and whatever happened between them, and then the whole sorority stuff that got out of hand. I just wish the author had kept to 1 plot and not try to add another one. I can imagine why he added it (giving more depth to Abby, and explaining what happened to her and who Gabriella is), but I think it would have been better had he made a separate book about it. The sorority stuff? Horrendous, that they do this kind of crazy stuff to pledge/allow members to join. Bleh. Disgusting. The story was pretty boring up until the end. Then everything started to go wrong and it was quite interesting to read what happened there. The end? Meh, typical R.L. Stine ending. Would I recommend this one? Not really.

    This book flaunts Stine’s ability to create and carry a mystery. Although this book is arguably lacking in intensity, it is a great read to keep one engaged and curious of what the finale will reveal. I definitely feel that the ending will satisfy most readers. Although this one is a slow burn, it will keep you intrigued until the end.

    Let me begin with the fact that I love R.L Stine. This book however, was fairly boring. It wasn't bad, just kind of 'meh'. I was hoping that it would be darker and it just wasn't. I felt as though he had toned it down, for some unknown reason? Not sure. Didn't love it, didn't hate it. Solid 3 Stars for a mildly entertaining book about a sorority that has a little dark humor in it.

    Not a good depiction of (view spoiler)[DID (hide spoiler)] , but an ok trash book. Also, seemed kind of old fashioned with all of that "My reputation, I'll get kicked out of school!" stuff, what kind of school do they go to? But otherwise, it had surprisingly good characterization, lol.

    One of top 3 favorite R.L. Stine books. Definitely one of his best. Even on re-reads when I knew the ending, it still hooked me.

    As other reviews stated, this book was fairly boring. The girls were extremely irritating and although I wasn't expecting that twist at the end, it could have ended better.

    (I'm writing this at 1:30 in the morning so I apologize if this isn't coherent) Meh. I don't really expect any literary masterpieces from Stein at this point considering I haven't loved any books that I've read from him, so I can't say that I'm surprised that I didn't love this one. Twisted follows this group of girls who want to join this sorority but to join, they have to partake in a hazing of sorts- the girls have a single task- to rob this little mom and pop jewelry store.

Sounds simple right? No not really. You're not wrong about that either. This book is basically just a 167 page cluster of stupid and confusing crap. Reading the first half of this book was almost unbearable. All of the characters were bland, whiny and way more immature than my twelve year old sister (these are 18-19 year old girls). Another reason the first half was so bad was the pacing. Nothing really substantial happened until the second half, leaving the first act mostly wasteful. The second half got a bit easier to read. Plot twists started to come into play which made the book a lot more interesting than before, and I was actually considering giving this book a 3.5 star rating- until the end. The end is SO confusing and contradictory. There was no explanation as to why what happened, happened, which was so wasteful because Stine had a great opportunity to write a kick-ass- mind blowing, shocking ending, but he definitely didn't, that's for sure. The one saving grace for Stine's books- thus far, is that I'm able to read each one in about 2 hours all together. So if you're looking for a quick book to complete your Goodreads goal or need a book for a readathon, pick this one up if you are at all interested. 2.5 out of 5 stars

    Sadly, I was kind of disappointed with this book. For the most part, I love all of R.L. Stine's books, but this was one of the ones that fell flat for me. I did like the idea of how the sorority pledges had to commit a crime to get in and I liked it even better when things went terribly wrong. My issue was that I didn't really find this creepy. It was alright in a suspenseful type of way, but it was no where as pee-your-pants scary as I'd hoped it would be.

I knew from the beginning what the twist was and it kind of ruined things for me. I'm not sure if I read this before and forgotten I had or if the plot was just really predictable. Maybe it was just me. It wasn't totally bad though. I liked one of the pledges Jessie and how she was introduced as the slightly obese girl asking for sandwiches. There were so many references to her wanting some cake or whatever and I don't know whether it was intentional or not, but it had me laughing my face off. I also did like the very last page of the book and thought it was a bit freaky how things were portrayed.

    I think twisted is an awsome book. R.L. Stine really knows how to make you think. This book keeps you wondering, up until the very end. If you like mistery, and excitement then you should really read this book. I love to read books that keep me guessing and this book did a great job. The thing i like most about this book is it's ending. It really catches you off gaurd, in a good way. I also like the discriptivness. It really paints a picture in your mind.

I think when you have to many characters it can be hard to follow whats going on. Overall I really like the book, and if you enjoy a good mystery I think you will too.

    When I started this book I really had no preordained expectations. I soon thought that I was in for a rather mundane “big girl” narrative where clothes and recent romances were the main course of a ho-hum literary meal. Sororities and their members (to my distant recollections) were more effusive than explosive and the footle conversation only increased my assumption. As the story continued this presumption came to an abrupt end. Gamma Gamma Gamma (or more commonly known as the Tri-Gammas) isn’t When I started this book I really had no preordained expectations.

How far are they willing to go to belong? How much do they want to join this sisterhood? Is committing a murder beyond their desire to fit in? Can you trust your sisters? This isn’t a “pee-in-your-pants horror/thriller that many fans have come to expect from R.L. Stine but he does raise peer pressure to a deadly level.

    I've had this sitting on my bookshelf for about a year now, I've never been able to get to it. But last night, I finally did, and it was pretty good. The story was good, about the whole prank thing going wrong, and it had that classic R.L. Stine [image error] moment. So yeah, when we found out that (view spoiler)[that Gabriella WAS Abby (hide spoiler)] , it wasn't in a shocking way, especially how Gordon said it so casually. I was just like,

    This book made me cry. These girls love this stupid boy and one went BADSHIT CRAZY over him it sickens me. I read this when I was in 6th or 7th grade and I remember afterwards just crying into my pillow. How can anyone be that cruel? And what kind of person DOES that to a FRIEND?? *sigh* I don't know....I just don't know.

    I really liked the book because it was really mysterious. Personally I love every book that R.L. Stine writes because they all have great suspense and they have alot of mystery. I give this book a five star because it was awsome.

    Another thriller written by R L Stine. This time a group of sorority girls commit a crime and their lives are never the same again. Not everything is as it seems and past actions may come back and haunt some of the sorority sisters.

    This book was interesting from beginning to end. The thing that really got me was that the ending should have been a very predictable one, but I completely did not see it coming what so ever. The suspense of finding out who committed the crimes kept me on my toes and ready to finish the book.

    Ms. Mielke's Class Make sure you post how your sheets tell you to!!!!

    I think other people should read this book because it will make them think about why and how people are valuable and special. It talks about how people get along and why it is important to get along. AH
