Fear Street Flashback (4)

Why? Because FEAR STREET was like, my favorite series growing up.

Originally released in May, 1991.

In honor of the start of summer! I really like that Simon Fear plays such a large role in this story. The Fear family legacy is one of the more interesting parts of the entire Fear Street series, so I like it when various family members pop up in single stories here and there.

The idea of the party summer is one I think every teenager can identify with: blue skies, empty beach, all the time in the world. So with that in mind, Party Summer is a timeless tale. The book's not really scary, unless you find the idea of ghosts and mental illness terrifying. And most of all, I liked that (spoiler alert!!!) no one dies. It's probably a lot harder to write a horror story where no one gets killed, but RL Stine does a fine job.

So read up, and let the summer parties begin!

Fear Rating: 2 out of 3 Screams

I've read R.L. Stine, but not this series. Thanks for sharing.
