The Slither Sisters by Charles Gilman
This second novel in the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series begins right where Professor Gargoyle ended. Seventh-grader Robert Arthur has discovered that two of his classmates are actually sinister snake-women in disguise. Even worse, his new middle school is full of “gates” to a terrifying alternate dimension – a haunted mansion full of strange spirits and monstrous beasts. For Robert to protect his teachers and classmates, he'll need to return to this haunted dimension with his best friends Glenn and Karina. Can they uncover the secrets of Lovecraft Middle School before it's too late?
The Slither Sisters features more bizarre beasts, more strange mysteries, and more adventure. It's perfect for readers ages 10 and up. Best of all, the cover features a state-of-the-art “morphing” photo portrait – so you can personally witness the sisters transforming into their slithering alter egos. You won't believe your eyes!
The Slither Sisters was a great sequel to Professor Gargoyle. The Slither Sisters is the second book in the Tales From Lovecraft Middle School series. The book begins with Sara, one of the twins who was abducted, running for student council. However, her and her sister have a secret that could destroy the whole middle school, and eventually the world. This book was a fast-paced read. I read it in a little over an hour. I liked the book, but not as well as I like the first book in the series. There weren’t many new characters. However, there was a lot of plot development. The ending shocked me. I didn’t see it coming at all. I can’t wait to see how the author incorporates the ending into the next book.
I give The Slither Sisters: 4/5.
