Haunted (Fear Street #7) by R.L. Stine

A ghost from the future is haunting Melissa and it's up to the two of them to prevent a young man's death from ever happening.
This is a horror fiction. It is well written, full of suspense thriller. Melissa belongs to a well off family. They live on Fear Street. Her father wants her to have everything in life which he himself was denied as a teenager. He recently gifted her a brand new car. All this hasn't made her snobbish in fact she was down to earth and humble person. Then she starts seeing a ghost in her room. She is scared but no one believes her.
A ghost who claims that Melissa killed him and now he is back to haunt her but Melissa doesn't even know him, she has never met him before let alone kill him..... so may be she hasn't killed him yet, may be he is a ghost from the future, who isn't here to haunt her but stop her from killing him.
It was a fun to read book, with some twists and turns that will keep readers in suspense but it's not something that will actually scare anyone, I think, still an enjoyable story.
