Synopsis:

Summer at the beach and Amanda Conklin's stuck in summer school. Well, at least she doesn't have to take care of her little brother and sister. That's Chrissy's job.

Chrissy seems like the perfect babysitter — so kind and trustworthy. But Amanda soon discovers Chrissy's terrible secret. Babysitting is Chrissy's job — but killing is what she does best!

My rating: ★★★★★

Chrissy is perfect—perfectly evil.

Amanda and her family are off on vacation to Seahaven, leaving behind their home on Fear Street for the summer. But the Fear Street curse follows you around no matter where you go. And unfortunately for Amanda, not everything will be sun and games for her because, first, she has to go to summer school! Second, apparently Amanda is so irresponsible that he parents have decided to hire a nanny for her younger siblings. Enter Chrissy. Charming, helpful, evil, fun Chrissy. Oh, did I mention evil? Amanda certainly thinks so. But her parents don’t believe that sweet Chrissy actually has an underlying evil plan. So Amanda sets out to prove her theory, before Chrissy decides to do something really sinister, like IDK kill someone!

I absolutely loved One Evil Summer! It was super suspenseful and things were just insane when Chrissy was around! This book actually had a little bit of a supernatural touch to it, which I loved! It just made things that much more crazy and interesting!

I really liked Amanda and Dave, the new friend she made at summer school, and even Chrissy! I really liked her characterization and mysteriousness. Speaking of mysteries, I really liked trying to figure out whether or not Chrissy was actually insane and whether or not she was the cause of all the strange things that have been happening to Amanda since Chrissy showed up. And then the reason why Chrissy was or was not tormenting them... I did not see it coming!

Overall, I really enjoyed this book! I loved all the craziness, and of course, the creepiness and suspense these books always bring!

The Fear Street connection: Amanda and her family, unfortunately, live on Fear Street.
