I really, really liked Party Summer! My favorite part about this was that there were actual Fears in this book! I mean, our main character, Cari, lives on Fear Street, but we get Simon Fear III, great nephew of THE Simon Fear!
Plus, Simon actually explains some of his family’s history, well, the things he knows about/heard of only. So, if you’re wondering what the deal is with Fear Street and the Fear family, and about all the horrible stuff that’s happened and how it all started, Simon gives a great summary in this book! But Simon’s knowledge is very limited, not knowing exactly what happened on that fateful night. So, if you the whole story, I think you can find it in the Fear Street Saga Trilogy. There is also another series, the Fear Street Sagas, which is more of the family’s unfortunate history.
Anyway, as for the particular story in Party Summer, it was interesting enough, though the plot twist at the end wasn’t very surprising. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve read this one before (I honestly can’t remember, lol) or because it was actually that predictable.
Also, the romance between Cari and Eric felt very forced, so I didn’t really enjoy it. But overall, I really enjoyed this read! It was thrilling and suspenseful, as always, plus the Fear family background was great!
