    People start spotting star quarterback Reggie Westerman around the school a year after he’s death. Reggie was killed accidentally during a match the previous year. Is he’s spirt out to seek revenge and is that spot on the team now cursed? After a promising start this story was slightly underwhelming. I liked how it tackled Jilly’s grief as she was dating Reggie at the time and how it impacted the whole school. I liked the image of the American Footballer stalking the school, but the story felt poor People start spotting star quarterback Reggie Westerman around the school a year after he’s death.

    In their first pre-game rally of the season, the studentry of Stony Bay High were shocked by an unexpected apparition - that of their beloved former quarterback who died due to injuries he sustained in his final game. That's only the start of what's turning out to be another bedeviled season, as a budding star player got into a serious "accident", another poisoned, their coach's house vandalized, and more hauntings plagued the school.

That's only the start of what's turning out to be another bedeviled season, as a budding star player got into a serious "accident", another poisoned, their coach's house vandalized, and more hauntings plagued the school. What (or who?) is the source of all these troubles, and will these all end before death claims another member of the team? It is a pretty suspenseful and competently-paced book, at least until just before the end. I really can't care less about the lead though because she's close to being insufferable. Also, the perpetrator becomes rather evident near the denoument. Some of the maneuvers seem rather unbelievable too. (view spoiler)[I mean, the perp stood in the middle of a road on a foggy night with very low visibility just to force a specific car off the road. That seems too high-risk low-reward to me. And don't get me started on that bonfire incident. (hide spoiler)] The ending was also anti-climactic and felt rushed. I'm rating this 5/10 or 2 stars out of 5.

    What a waste of paper. Barbara Steiner has written some quality books, and some not so quality books, The Phantom is one of the poorly written ones. It was bad from the first word to the last. Amelia spends much of the story either trying to console her friend Jilly, or getting mad at Jilly for being unable to move past her former boyfriend's death. Things kick off in September, Reggie Westlake died 10 months prior. Jilly HAD apparently managed to move past his death until the first day of schoo What a waste of paper.

Things kick off in September, Reggie Westlake died 10 months prior. Jilly HAD apparently managed to move past his death until the first day of school, then she was back to not being past it. I was a little confused as to why school starting triggered a setback for Jilly, Reggie died the past November, meaning Jilly had attended school for 7 months after his death before summer break. At any rate, Jilly spends much of her time crying and carrying on about Reggie, she can't live without Reggie. Somehow she had managed to live for nearly a year, but suddenly, just in time for the book, she couldn't. The remainder of the story focused on people thinking they are seeing Reggie's ghost all over town. There was also a bit about one character's name. His name was Garth, so the kids at school nicknamed him Vader. I would have gotten the joke if Garth's last name had been Vader, you know, Garth Vader...but I don't recall that being Garth's last name. The kids were just calling him Vader because Garth rhymed with Darth...the whole thing didn't make a drop of sense.

    This has to be one of the worst Point Horror books I've read. Most Point Horrors leave a cliffhanger at the end of the chapter to get you to keep reading. This barely had any so I had no incentive to keep reading. I'm also not very good at spotting who is going to be the bad guy in these books but within the first few chapters I knew exactly who it was so most of the book was just spent waiting for the inevitable.

    After a first chapter where the dead quarter back mysteriously appears at a pep rally this goes from teen drama to horror movie and back again. All the while it fails to build the suspense and tension needed for this to be scary. I seem to remember hating this in the 90's and age hasn't improved it.

I only wish there was a bigger sense of danger throughout the book, but I guess that’s more because I’m used to the main character being the bad guy’s target whereas here, Amelia’s more of an innocent bystander trying to help her boyfriend.

    🏈 This had a reasonably promising start, but things tapered off quickly. This is the first Point Horror that I've found to be this lackluster. The ending was OK, but predictable and a good example of too little too late. I wasn't invested in any of characters enough to care about the conclusion. Any impact it might have had was dampened by this. There were a few plausibility issues as well, particularly one involving a car and fog. The logistics of that just didn't make sense to me.

    I've been re reading some of the Point Horror books and came across this one. Christopher Pike, Diana Hoh and RL Stines books in this series can still be a bit creepy but this was just a drag. Boring, predictable and not in the least horror like. Such a shame as many of the Point Horrors series still stand the test of time.

    I did like it. I can’t say too much without spoiling it. One thing that bugged me, and needed to say; the character in the back cover description’s last name is wrong! How did this get past publishing 😂

    Lol wow, so many dislike this book! I do not remember how bad the writing was but i remember the story well. I read this book in elementary. But i gave it a 5 because i remember loving it and thinking of it made me smile. Seeing this is actually making me want to read it again. Maybe like watching a really old movie ill realize how terrible it truly was lol.

    Phantom, a book which use to belong to my sister now rests on my bookshelf. I diffidently didn't expect the ending when I read it. It's a good horror book. Not too scary, but not-how do i put this- not something I'd read to a little child. Phantom, a book which use to belong to my sister now rests on my bookshelf.

    Not really sure what was going on in this book, but somehow I still sort of enjoyed it. 2 stars may be a bit harsh, but I just wish that I could have understood what was happenning!

    Not bad but pretty predictable in my mind. Decently written.

    Early stuff written for YA and middle grade is really simplistic so while this is an interesting story, it's unfortunately a product of the time it was written.
