The last of the episodes we recorded before Anna went off to Europe is finally up!
Fear Street: The Stepsister involves Emily grappling with the fact that her stepsister Jessi is moving in to her room. They got along at the wedding, but things are just falling apart. Going from a single room to a shared room is inherently pretty difficult. But moving in to a room with someone who you believe might be out to get you might just be worse. Add to that a misogynistic stepdad and a quiet and slightly odd stepbrother and it’s an interesting situation you have going on. Good thing Emily has the support of a older sister Nancy who seems to always be there when she needs a shoulder.
Divorced kids were THE topic in MG and YA books in the 90’s. This is the first Fear Street book that deals with two families coming together. We’re not entirely sure RL Stine did the situation justice, but family dynamics are not his forte.
Anna also gives a brief rundown of Pilot X and Spaceman of Bohemia.
Without further ado, here’s Episode 10 – Fear Street 9: The Stepsister. Give it a listen!
