Format: Mass Market Paperback
Read this when I was around twelve or thirteen and it was THE book that got me not only into reading, but re-ignited my passion for horror stories.

Martha, a decidedly plain and homely blonde, moves to a new town with her father to live with her new stepmother Sally and her annoyingly aloof strange stepbrother Connor. Martha finds that trying to get used to her new home is increasingly unsettling when the curtains like to move on their own, and strange shadows lurk in her bedroom when she sleeps.

At the local hardware store, Martha meets and befriends Wynn, a friendly but traumatised high school girl who is still reeling from the death of her best friend Elizabeth only a year before. Wynn confides in Martha that Elizabeth had lived in the house that Martha's family have just moved into, and that the poor girl was killed brutally in Martha's very bedroom a year ago on Halloween by her boyfriend Dennis, a foul-tempered bad boy who disappeared after Elizabeth's death. Wynn is only reminded more of the fact of Elizabeth's death by Martha's uncanny resemblence to her.

As the dark shadows and strange sounds continue to manifest in the creepy old house, Martha begins to despair that either she is being haunted, or that Dennis has returned thinking Elizabeth has lived all this time.

I have to say this is definately THE best Point Horror book that was ever written, it has mystery, romance, suspense, and horror all wrapped up into one. The writing is great, it's a good un-put-downable read that is so vivid you could almost imagine it being a movie. Good for teens, but even as an adult I went back to reading it and it was still quite satisfying and good for nostalgia. Reminds you of the kind of stuff that really came before the craze of Twilight.

Trick or Treat was the first Point Horror book i ever read, once I read it I could'nt stop reading them. I loved Point Horror as a teenager, I used to love shutting myself in my bedroom and reading them, they took me away from real life for a while.... at least :)
As I said Trick or Treat was a fantastic book and a while back I came across it here on Amazon, it made me smile and had to buy it again to take a trip down memory lane.
Wished I had kept all my original books but unfortunately somewhere from being a teenager to a mum in my thirties they went missing (I blame my parents lol)
So anyway I have had fun reading these books all over again, I recommend these to teenagers or people of my age who want to go back in time and enjoy their youth once more
They are a little dated (no mentions of mobile phones) but thats what makes me smile & reminds me thats what it was like back then "gosh I sound like I'm 90 " lol
Enjoy x

This book is really great. It combines mystery with horror really well. Although not terrifyingly scary, sometimes you find yourself pausing before turning over the page and breathing in deeply because you think that something horrible is going to happen on the next page. And sometimes, it does. The conclusion is really unexpected, and even at the end, with only a few pages to go, you're still confused about who did what. However, all becomes clear to make this another excellent book in the Point Horror series. For anyone who doesn't want to be terrified but still pretty scared, this is a must.

This was the first horror I ever read, probably when I was about 9 or 10. I remember reading it under the covers at night with a little torch I had so my mum and dad wouldn't know I was awake. I remember it being truly and utterly terrifying, I was so scared when I read it I couldn't breathe!

I haven't read it since (I'm now 25) but I'm pretty sure it's quite shoddy, as I even realised these point horror books where even when I was about 11, but it gets 5 stars from me because without this I wouldn't now be reading Barker and King!

Anyway I'm going to buy it now and see what it's like :)

I first read this book around 13 years ago when i was at school. Loved it then and still love it now, couldn't resist buying it when i saw it on Amazon!
It's great for teenagers who like a bit of a scare, i remember being petrified when i first read it...at home...alone...at night - i was a massive daredevil :D
The descriptions of the characters really brought the book to life and it is written very well!
As an adult, i no longer find this book half as scary as what i did but it was definately worth buying for a trip down memory lane.

Trick or treat is easily the best Point Horror out there at the moment. The last two chapters just blew my mind. When i found out who the murderer was at the end i kept saying 'Oh my God'. It really is a shock when the identity of the murderer is revealed. I think this book would make an excellent film. Congratulations to Richie Tankersley Cusick for writing such a great book .
