It's your typical Fear Street book. Nothing really makes it stand out except there's a lot less violence in this Fear Street book than the others in the series. There's actually a very interesting ethical/moral/legal question in this book. (view spoiler) The ending s ...more

Full review at By Flashlight — a YA book blog

Beach lifeguard Adam has been having a rough time after he killed his girlfriend last summer. He just can’t seem to shake the guilt. Roommate Ian, new girlfriend Leslie and a shrink named Dr. Thall are all trying to help him forget and move on.

“High Tide” is actually told from the point of view of a male lifeguard. The POV changes between two guys, but only at the beginning. It was odd that this device is just dropped in the middle of the book. The b

This is one of those Fear Street novels that doesn't even take place on Fear Street or even in Shadyside. Adam is a college kid who graduated from Shadyside High. After an accident leaves his summer girlfriend dead, he is left struggling to deal with his guilt. A year has passed and though he's trying to move on, he's begun to hallucinate.

For a Fear Street novel, this one was fairly tame and even average. The twist leads into a random murder atte

I agree with the majority of the reviewers here. It's your typical Fear Street book.

I'm now in my early 30s but grew up on these books and got my hands on any and every one I could read. I remember them fondly but also remember they were very tame. Sometimes not even including any real horror elements.

A lot of these books consist of hallucinations and fake deaths or fake ghosts or jokes. This book is no different.

I like going back to these to review for my site (as they are 1 day reads) But a

Not the shiniest of the R.L. Stone books. You start to wonder how stupid the protagonist is right away. However, I can see how a teenager would enjoy it. Its a simple read and can be done in one sitting. There isn't anything overly adult in it so you don't have any explicit scenes that some teens might not want to read.
I read this book because as a teen I was a Fear Street Junkie! I have very fond memories of reading the Fear Street Series. By the time this book was published I was a bit too old. I decided to relive my teenage years. I also want to introduce the series to my middle school students.

As an adult, this book is very predictable. As a middle school student, not so much. I think that the drama and mystery are fantastic YA writing.
The plot was trying too hard to be a mystery but by just a few pages in the entire thing got old. The secrecy was over-the-top and served little to now purpose. Strictly a young teen thriller.
I read this book while in middle school. I was a HUGE R.L. Stine fan and like most of his other books, I couldn't put it down.
Decent "Fear Street" book. Full of twists but ending is sort of expected

very freaky. i kinda wish the ending would have been a bit better.
A twisted story, just as expected. Enjoyable though.
