Let me start by saying that I am a huge Freddy Krueger/Nightmare on Elm Street fan. This book is a lot like the 80's TV show, Freddy's Nightmares, in which you see Freddy a few times but it's not all about him. I still enjoyed the book (which is not surprising since I like Freddy's Nightmares). The setting is Elm Street (duh!) and you have the typical popular kids who pick on the weird boy and the one popular girl who feels sorry for him. The story mostly revolves around the latter. Little do they know that Freddy has some influence in their real lives and not just the dream world. It was a quick read and I would recommend it to fellow Freddy fans!
