Deep in the heart of Shadyside, a small, but lovely town, lurks a terror, far beyond those ever imagined. Fear Street. Murders, ghosts, Betrayal, Revenge and Dark secrets thrive on this infamous Road. But why DO so many terrifying things happen on Fear Street, and where did it gets it's name? The Evil goes far back in time, a story Nora Goode knows far too well. A story of Evil, an evil that has cursed the Fear family for generations, an Evil that destroyed Nora's one true love. Now Nora must tell her story. This is the first (and probably the best) of the Three Fear Street Saga books. Nora is the Narrorator, and her story goes all the way back to Wickham Village,Massachusetts, to Susannah Goode, a girl who is burned at the stake, accused of witchcraft because the father of the man she loves sees her unfit to wed his son. Susannah's father, a real witch, puts a terrible curse on the family, that will follow the Fiers (later changed to FEAR) through generations, will destroy the Fear family. Personally, this is the best book in the Fear Street series, beautifully written, it's best to have the second and third parts on hand, because once you start, you won't want to stop.
