I really don t have much to say about this book Anyone who knows me can tell that I m obsessed with Fear Street books, but this wasn t that good at all Mostly, it was just okay The plot was kind of boring There weren t really any moments where I was scared or creeped out There was one scene involving an Irish wolfhound and a shark I felt like it was supposed to be super suspenseful However, it wasn t exciting at all and as pages and pages went by, I kept wishing that this part of the stor I really don t have much to say about this book Anyone who knows me can tell that I m obsessed with

story would be over already The thing with Daniel was stupid The explanation made sense, but I thought the reveal seemed kind of like it was just thrown in at the end as an afterthought I also didn t understand why Marla and the others weren tconcerned when Claudia said that this strange boy knew the code to the gate You would ve thought something like that would be a big deal, but everyone just ignored her The ending was so anti climactic There s the big twist and I ll admit that I wasinterested in the story after view spoiler they found Marla s body in the shed hide spoiler , but then the book seemed to wrap up too quickly I wished it had been drawn out a bit longer because you found out who was causing all these bad things to happen and then a couple pages later the book was over

146 pages and also there s not a lot of room for character development in that time We open with our protagonist, Claudia, buried alive She s a redhead and the sun is killing her, zapping her energy where she can t move She vaguely recalls where she is and why she s there She was having a reunion with Camp Full Moon pals Sophie, Jill, and Marla They are all at Marla s estate in Summerhaven But if they all came to meet up, then why is Claudia being left for dead And now the tide is coming in Claudia says her goodbyes but, come on, it s page 5 or whatever so we know this isn t the end for her though what a nice twist if it was All at once a boy named Daniel comes to her rescue and walks her back to Marla s house He also seems to know the code to get into the estate But just as she tries to introduce him to her friends, Daniel disappears Marla tells them all that he was a ghost She weaves a fabulous story about a ghost in the guest house, and all three girls are enraptured by her tale Then Marla breaks the magic and tells them it was all a joke But Claudia is confused who IS Daniel then Dinner arrives and with it the sound of Joy screaming There is a worm on her lettuce leaf Basically the only thing we learn about Joy is that she is the drama queen of the group, and she REALLY hates bugs So far these couple of weird incidents don t spark alarm, but things get weirder As they are leaving to head out one night or day who knows Sophie goes to open the fence but gets an electrical shock She is very badly shaken but insists that she is all right The girls head out anyway and go to the local carnival There they run into Carl and Dean, whom they met previously on Marla s beach and whom Sophie and Joy immediately snuggle up to Marla is having none of it, however She cannot stand the idea of getting close to them Weird much, Marla Claudia decides it would be better if she goes off on her own instead of getting involved in that mess, so she wanders near the ferris wheel and lo and behold It s Ghost Boy Daniel shows up and suggests they ride the ferris wheel together He hears Claudia call him a ghost and thinks it s hilarious and plays it up for all its worth he runs it into the ground, to be honest As they get to the top of the ferris wheel, it stops why I won t ride them , and they take in the view But, suddenly, Daniel jokingly reaches out to grab the moon, rocking the car and plunging to his death No, he doesn t But way to make absolutely sure I never ever again consider the ferris wheel a viable ride option, RL Stine Instead Claudia flashes back in her head to the previous summer at Camp Full Moon and the cryptic situation with Marla s sister, Alison, that she and Sophie and Joy have been alluding to Marla hated Alison, and it seems Alison was quite the jerk What is it with girls named Alison, anyway Alison comes in to bother the girls, and Marla tells her to leave them alone But she won t, so Marla gives Alison a Truth or Dare, and Alison picks dare Marla dares Alison to cross Grizzly Gorge at night knowing full well that Alison is afraid of heights It s a log stretching across a river, but Alison agrees to do it When they go out to watch her, Marla gets stopped by the head counselor, Caroline, but the other girls carry on When they arrive they plead and plead with Alison not to do it, but she won t be swayed Their little game of Dare is interrupted, however, when they see flashlights and hear voices The girls scatter, knowing that Alison is about to fall but doing nothing to help her They assume probably rightfully that Alison plunged to her death that night, as her bloody t shirt is found the next day.The next crazy incident to happen at Marla s estate involves Joy again She wakes everyone up in the middle of the night with her screaming about leeches on her arm this is possibly the grossest thing ever The girls, at this point, are convinced that someone broke in and is after them, but Marla isn t so sure She s positive there s no way anyone could get in but Claudia knows that Daniel knows the gate code Everyone else still thinks he s a ghost, so they pay Claudia no mind.Despite all these goings on, the girls decide the next day it would be a grand idea to go waterskiing Every time they go outside Claudia has to slather herself in sunscreen because of her massive burn from being buried alive Sophie decides to try waterskiing first Massive, massive idiots these girls are Of course everything is fine for a millisecond Then Sophie gets pulled into the riptide but doesn t raise her right arm to signal that she s okay Meanwhile, Marla s boat stalls, because of course it does Claudia is a better friend than Joy or Marla, because she quickly dives into the water to save Sophie She tries to avoid the riptide but gets caught in it anyway, and she convinces herself, once again, that she s going to die What a stressful weekend this is But along come Carl and Dean again They have already saved Sophie and quickly pull Claudia out of the water Back on the shore, Marla is begrudgingly grateful to them But as they go away Claudia notices something odd about the rope attached to the boat It s been cut Marla thinks Carl and Dean are to blame But Sophie, Joy, and Claudia have other ideas.They all congregate back at Marla s estate, and while Marla is away the girls begin whispering Joy or Sophie thinks Marla must be behind all of this As she points out, it s possible that Marla knows they could have saved Alison but did nothing to help her Thus, she is out for revenge It seems likely, but by this point I already knew the real twist because I watch Pretty Little Liars, natch The girls know they need to leave, but their parents can t come until the day after That leaves oneday filled with accidents and boy, hot damn , RL Stine does not disappoint.Claudia goes for a run the next morning I ve given up asking why at this point in the bird sanctuary But halfway through her run, she notices that there aren t any well birds No sounds Nothing Something must have scared them off Something like an irish wolfhound Yes, because that s the dog that s after her now Claudia runs towards the water, because what else can she do She s underestimating the fact that dogs don t really hate water like cats do, though, and the wolfhound keeps pursuing her It bites into her leg which begins stinging like crazy because she s in saltwater I mean, all this is quite enough shenanigans for one book or a lifetime, really, but we aren t done yet Because now Claudia sees a shark Yes I m not joking The only thing she can think is to move her arms in smooth motions so as not to attract too much attention though I m sure the gaping wound in her leg will do the job just fine Not to worry, though, Claud The shark bites into the dog, turning the ocean red around her Then, in what is perhaps the most sick fuck piece of writing he s ever given us, RL describes how a piece of the dog floats up around Claudia So if Jaws didn t officially fuck you up for lifeMarla rescues Claudia from the water Claudia tries to explain everything, but it doesn t matter because I don t think God himself would believe her Also, Marla doesn t really care about anyone, so there s that Once Claudia gets back, all she can do is tell Sophie that they must escape, like, now But Joy has gone out with Dean or Carl and isn t home They wait for her because they don t really have a choice and once she gets back Claudia tells them that they HAVE to leave Summerhaven She is positive now that Marla IS trying to kill them the Irish wolfhound was hers They go to the fence but Claudia reminds them it is electrified So they decide to go around to the guest house, even though a storm is brewing and they know they don t really have a way out When they come to the shed, they notice an odor permeating the air The odor belongs to a human body The body of Marla What Strange, isn t it then, that Marla soon after comes up behind them The girls are baffled AF, but I wasn t Because Pretty Little Liars taught me that no one is ever really dead Especially not people named Alison And surprise, bitches That s who it is Of course she faked dead to everyone else and went to live with the family that rescued her because she hated her own family She saw Marla laughing at her on the log, and she never forgave the girls for not trying to save her So she invited the girls to the estate to get her revenge, and she killed Marla as soon as she showed up Chaos and fighting ensue, but Alison flees to the electrical fence Claudia tries to tell her that it s electrified, but Alison won t listen She touches it and fries to death not escaping like lucky Sophie Just then Daniel aka Ghost Boy shows up AGAIN and proves to Joy and Sophie that he s real Turns out he s the butler s son but didn t want to cost his dad his job, so he had to be vague All s well that ends well except for Marla and Alison, I suppose, who seemed to have a family about as fucked up as the DiLaurentises Gaping Plot Holes Would a shark really eat a dog but spare the girl whose leg is bleeding everywhere The Actual Suspect s Alison, Marla s not so dead little sister &Ebook ⇵ Sunburn ★ You could get burned The perfect suntan Soaking up the rays Fun on the beach That s what Claudia Walker had in mind when she accepted her friend Marla s invitation to spend the weekend at her cliffside beach house Little did she know that horrible accidents fatal accidents would occur on the beach and in the houseBut Claudia knows they re not accidents She s sure somebody is out to get them out to kill them The week of fun in the sun has turned dark and deadly Super exciting I loved the flashbacks and it was completely the opposite of what I expected This now, reinvigorated my interest in the series, which before I had only read in passing, with mild amusement Sunburn is fun, atmospheric, and has a truly glorious death towards the end Better still it s unpredictable Stine has built his name on his plot twists, after all though perhaps thatdue to my ingenuity in the mystery genre than any special prowess on Stine s part.Stine is just entertaining Haters will hate, but there s no getting around the fact.
