Plotseling overviel Sara het gevoel weer dat er iemand naar aar keek. Dat iemand haar in de gaten hield. Ze bleef staan en keek om zich heen. Opeens zag Sara vanuit haar ooghoeken iets bewegen. Met een ruk draaide ze haar hoofd om. In een flits zag ze een gedaante wegduiken. Sara voelde een koude rilling langs haar rug lopen. Dus toch! Ze had het zich niet verbeeld. Maar w ...more

Fatal Secrets by Richie Tankersley Cusick to me is all about two things, which might seem ridiculous seeing as there's much more to the plot, believe me, but the reason I love it? Our main heroine, Ryan and the guy I like to consider her male lead from start to finish, Jinx. Okay, I'll be honest, I'm all about Jinx, Jinx and even more Jinx.

There isn't a lot of romance in this book, it's just sort of scattered in there amongst the main plot line yet still, I love the minimal romance that it has.

Second of my read through of the Point Horror books.

I genuinely don't think I read this one when I was a kid. Which isn't surprising, it definitely wouldn't have spoken to me then. Dead sister (I have issues with dead family and I'm an only child) and the blurb is just a bit shit.

I'm going to whisper this one... This is good. Like... Actually good. There were loads of ridiculous twists, although I guessed three of the culprits, the main one was a bit of a shock. Alright some of the action bits

Reminds me of: 101 ways to meet Mr Right by Janet Quin Harkin.

"It was probably just a practical joke" moment: I don't think anyone actually said this.

"You probably just imagined it" moment: This happened constantly. No one had any faith in her sanity at all. (view spoiler)

I'm going to be honest. I don't entirely remember this book, but I know that I read it, and I know that I loved it. During the 6th grade, roundabouts 1994, I became deeply obsessed with Rickie Tankersley Cusick. I was also reading Christopher Pike and Caroline B. Cooney, which I now understand means I was into the horror/suspense genre. As far as I can remember, Cusick was the best of these writers, definitely when it came to suspense. (Cooney also wrote realistic YA fiction, which I don't think ...more

As expected from RTC, tons of suspense with memorable scares. The twist was really unexpected as I thought I got down the bad guy but I was only half right.

Ryan was someone I feel sorry for due to predicamanet she's in that the book made me hope there will be happy ending. Jinx is perhaps my favorite character from his sharp tongue and some surprising characteristics.

The big issue I have with the book is that sometimes it doesn't make sense how the villain(s) managed to set up their scares in te
I actually liked this one until the ending. I just felt betrayed that at least two of those involved where actually involved. I felt like that was all because of shock value and their characters did like a 180. Quick read though.

I don't think I ever read this one as a kid, but I legitimately enjoyed reading it now. Usually my nostalgia clouds my judgment with these re-reads, but nothing about this book was familiar and I still loved it.

The ending was a total shocker, and I love that I was wrong the entire time about the killer. This was such a fun read!

Cusick was the most talented of all the Point Horror writers, and I love that my library has some of these available as e-books now. I can't wait to read more of them.
Wow, this was one hell of a ride. I normally pick up these books for that B-movie level of teen horror, but this was actually pretty good. It didn’t have any of the cheese factor that most of these books from the 90’s suffered from. While the beginning was a little slow, it got better the more I read. There were a couple scenes that really creeped me out, my favorite being the part where (view spoiler). I also ...more

This book is about two sisters Ryan and Marissa. One has a secret and then she dies. The other is left to handle the aftermath. Will she ever figure out the secret? Or will she lose her mind in the process?

Honestly I struggled with this book. Though that could be because the narrator was not that good. I found the character it's hard to like. Except for one in that didn't turn out that great. The ending however was worth sticking it out for. I personally didn't see it coming but I probably sh

Taking a trip down memory lane this surprisingly stands the test of time.

An accidental death, some psychological horror and a nice ending. All the hallmarks of the point horror series and just freaky enough to make my heart beat faster without giving my adult self nightmares. The big question, following her sisters death is 'is Ryan crazy?' A mysterious stranger appears at the family home a few weeks later and events spiral from there.

It was a great book. From the start it started off mysterious which caught my attention. There are many suspensively events that keep me attached and wanting to know what happened next. Sometimes i have suspected something going on but then I learn more and reevaluate what I had predicted was going to happen. This book keeps your attention through out the whole book. Also this book is easy to read and keeps you interest. This book honestly had me feeling scared and nervous.

The reason i likes this book is because it keeps you thinking. Another thing is you never want to put it down. It is a thrilling story about Ryan and her family. It all starts when her sister drowns. Then she gets this feeling that she is being watched. Read this amazing book to figure out if it was and accidental drowning or not.

Fantastic book, I knew there would be a twist to the ending as there usually is with this author, and I wasn't disappointed, there was a twist to the end, I thought I had it all figured out who was doing what to whom, but I was wrong, not a 100% but still partly wrong..

I enjoy these Point Horror books because it reminds me of when I was a kid and all the "Point" brand books were popular.
It's got that typical teen slasher flick feel to it which I quite enjoy. As an adult, it's an easy read, just for fun and a bit of nostalgia.

A better than average YA read. Good characterisations and a cracking plot makes it very pacy and easy to read.

Richie is very good at the whole suspenseful twist ending scenario. To have the characters you'd least expect the main perpetrator... Wow!
