Jesus, I read this when I was like 8, and I do not remember there being so much eluding to sex in it! No wonder I humped every surface of house growing up...

Stine loves his cliff hangers! Super apparent in BEACH PARTY where damn near every chapter ends with one.

Two friends vacation at the father's house of one of the teen girls. The dad is...more

I remembered the main plot points of this book quite well, despite the fact that I probably hadn't read it in fifteen years, but I couldn't remember if I actually liked it or not. Happily, it turns out that I did.

Karen (California girl) and her friend Ann-Marie (visiting from New York, where she's been living for a few years) are spending the summer at Venice Beach, and are planning to party nonstop. Karen's recently broken up with her boyfriend, so she's thrilled when she meets two new guys: sw...more

Thankfully two boys come to their rescue, and the girls end up heading to a pizza place with them.

I fought this wis a gud book. Tad was so hot I really didnt wnt him 2 die but ahm sorry ahm gonna gie the end awa, he died at the beech partey. Wud rate it higher if poss.
Being that I've read this several times,And enjoyed it, this time around it was a little bland, but still a fun Summer Read. I question the main character, Karen's maturity level she went back and forth between guyses if it was some kind of pros and cons game and I wasn't as scary as it was the first couple of times. But since its been so long since I read it. It definitely lost some of its R.L, Stine magic but for those who haven't read it yet, it's a really good, really quick, and noncommittal...more
Sam and I just finished reading this the other day and loved it. R.L. Stine rivals Christopher Pike when it comes to vapid, bitchy heroines and even bests him when it comes to cliffhangers at the end of chapters. If you're up for a little fun in the sun and a perspective on the teenage, female mind that is actually quite hilarious - check it out!

A 98% chance I read this one in high school... But what can I say? A book doesn't make it into the library without a 100%. Not the most interesting from Stine, but not terrible. It's a little cheesy, a little dated, and a tad predictable, but overall it is compelling nonetheless.
This Was a very intresting book, honesly different then some of the other books, of R.L. Stine boooks Iv'e read. Surpriselny, only one cahracter in the book was murdered. and the end was all differnt then all of the other books, also.
I usually read these in a night at most, this one was not a page turner. Took me over a week, but otherwise it wasn't too bad. I missed teenage fiction that wasn't about tortured, sexually frustrated wimps.

It was very good. I didn't really connect with the main character though which is a shame but it is persona preference. Still a good story though.
I was a huge R.L. Stine fan in my early teens! I loved all the fear street books! They are what got me into reading again! :)
I DID NOT LIKE IT!!!!!!!!!!!.........plzz if u like the cover and the back page dont go for it !!!! is not gud!!

Enjoyable nonsense I'd actually forgotten I read it til I saw the cover.
