How I Learned to Fly

A Fifty-Second Goosebumps book by R.L. Stine

Synopsis: HE’S GOT HIS HEAD IN THE CLOUDS. FOR REAL… Wilson Schlame loves to make Jack Johnson feel like a total loser. And Jack’s had it. That’s how he ended up down at the beach. In a creepy, old abandoned house. In the dark. Trying to hide from Wilson. But everything is about to change. Because Jack just dug up the coolest book. It’s called Flying Lessons. It tells how humans can learn to fly. Poor Jack. He wanted to get back at Wilson. But now that Jack’s learned how to fly, things down on earth are getting really scary..

This was one of the most disappointing ones. There was absolutely no spooky or goosebumps-y aspect to this book at all. It was literally a boy who found a book about how to fly, made a potion (of sorts) and could fly. Nothing scary nothing dangerous just exactly that. End of story.

I don’t understand why if you were constantly competing with someone who you hate.. like literally CONSTANTLY competing.. why would you continuously hang out with them? Even more than you seem to hang out with your actual friends?

I don’t understand what the plot or the idea of this book was supposed to be, because whatever it was going for I believe it missed its mark by quite a lot. I don’t get this one.

I rate this book
