So there were two sort of mysteries going on at the same time, that may or may not actually be connected. This first is obviously the murder mystery, and the second is the weird things that are happening to Lindsey, which I can’t go into too much because of spoilers. But what I can say is that I found all this very intriguing! I would’ve never guessed the outcomes and I really liked that! You know how much I like being surprised by the reveals! At first, I was kind of iffy about the Lindsay reveal, but the more I read about it, the more I was okay with it. It was insane, but interesting!
There were also a lot of interesting characters, some more insane than others (Arnie was a freaking creep!), but overall, I enjoyed all the different characters. As most Fear Street books, this one was very suspenseful and it actually had some pretty graphic/horrifying scenes... I loved it!! And even though this book doesn’t take place on Fear Street, I really enjoyed the setting in the country club! Plus Lindsay had a couple of outings, so we weren’t there the whole time. Overall, a really enjoyable, fun read!
The Fear Street connection: Lindsay lives on Fear Street.
Enter Lindsay Beck. Having been a Lifeguard at the North Beach Country Club for the last two years, she re-enters the place to resume her position. However, as soon as she reaches the gate of the Club, she sees a dead woman floating face down on the swimming pool. As if things are not bad enough, she realizes her ID card is over two years ago and her name is not on the lifeguard list. Things go from bad to worse, when she realizes that she doesn't remember being interviewed by Pete Harris, the athletic director for the job and doesn't remember anything about her life in the last few months. However, another new lifeguard member named Spencer Brown enters the club and Lindsay recognizes him (and he recognizes her as well), even though she doesn't remember anything about him. Lindsay gets the lifeguard position because Spencer vouches for her identity and also because one of the other girls who had the job cancels in the last minute.
Lindsay's life becomes a nightmare when the other lifeguards start getting murdered and Lindsay finds herself being the first one in the scene of the crime. Lindsay soon realizes that some of the other lifeguards are strange and any one of them could be the killer. Lindsay tries contacting her parents but she is not able to reach them. Her roommate, May-Ann Delacroix sneaks out every night without notifying her, has a collection of mouse figurines in her drawer, and believes that the ghosts of the people who died in the club the previous years are still wandering around. There's also puny lifeguard named Arnie Wilts who cracks bad jokes and comes on a little too strong to Lindsay, and keeps talking to a mystery person on the phone. Can Lindsay find out who the real killer is, and also find out why she is not able to get in touch with her family or friends?
Review: I loved reading this book. Some of the reasons why I enjoyed it so much was because of:-
- The way it was written. I liked reading each chapter from the perspective of a different person, as it really made me understand their character and what they were thinking.
- The story itself. It was different from the other Fear Street books, but still maintained the style of the series. The book contains two parallel storylines revolving around the same character in the same time period, which I thought was different for a Fear Street book. One on hand, Lindsay is trying to figure out her past, and on the other hand she is trying to solve the mystery to the murders.
- The red herrings thrown in the book. The climax to both the storylines was such a shock that it made me go over all the incidents, and I realized that the ending fit really well to the story.
This is definitely one of the best Fear Street books that I read, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes reading the series.
