(And how about that, my nail polish even matches!
I didn't plan that this time! Swears!)
Anyhoo, so I had this recently acquired book in my possession and I'd just finished the book I took with me on the trip, therefore, High Tide by R.L. Stine became my companion for the flight home. (Well, about half way, the book is only 163 pages long and the flight was from Seattle to Atlanta, you do the math :)
I'm not going say this was the most brilliant piece of literature I've ever read BUT I did totally enjoy it and the nostalgia it brought me. I think what I always liked about Fear Street books was the suspenseful mystery. And High Tide did not disappoint in that area, in fact, it is almost like a YA psychological thriller!
The main character, Adam, is a lifeguard who is working at the same beach his girlfriend died at the summer before. He is suffering from some severe mental trauma surrounding that event and he's having a hard time with what is reality and what is hallucination. The author sets up a good story and the ending is not what I expected at all. It's kind of cheesy in places but I guess when you take in account it was written 15 years ago, I guess that isn't so bad! I didn't find it to be really believable either but hey, it is fiction!
My final thoughts: good trip down memory lane and worth the hour or two it took to read it.
What were your fav books when you were younger??
