Summer of Fear
Summer of Fear | Lois Duncan
6 posts | 22 read | 2 to read
From the moment Rachel's family takes in her orphaned cousin Julia, strange things start to happen. Rachel grows suspicious but soon finds herself alienated from her own life. Julia seems to have enchanted everyone to turn against her, leaving Rachel on her own to try and prove that Julia is a witch. One thing about Julia is certain-she is not who she says she is, and Rachel's family is in grave danger.

Pickpick

This edition was updated with modernized text, and I have to admit it made a huge difference. I had read the original Don‘t Look Behind you and it felt dated, whereas this did not. YA page turner about a teenager who has her estranged cousin move in with her family after a tragedy. I knew the answers long before the protagonist, but it was still a fun ride. Well done, Ms. Duncan.

#sweetsummerstack This book makes me think of summer-especially summer weekends in the 80s, baking in the sun with my friends & stealing lemons from the kitchen to put streaks in our hair. Summer of Fear had a TV movie that was often in the VCR on summer nights. Directed by Wes Craven, & starring Linda Blair, it was cheesy & bad in the best way. I pulled out the movie & book for a summer repeat 🌞👍Thanks @Liberty for another great giveaway.💛

#JuneTunz #BooksFromBoxes Full disclosure, this is a repost pic but I let time & the lighting slip away working on a blog post so I'm using it. 😬This is my Lois Duncan box-she was my favorite author as a preteen & led me to my enjoyment of twisty thrillers.😱Several years ago I bought used copies of her books, reread my favorites, put them in this box & stored them on my closet shelf. When she passed away last year I reread them all yet again.❤️

DebinHawaii And the video is my favorite so-bad-it's-good 1978 TV movie of her book, staring Linda Blair. 😆👍 3y
Hooked_on_books I loved her books when I was young. Thanks for the jog down memory lane! 3y
LeahBergen I think I read that same edition of I Know What You Did Last Summer. 😂 3y

I've shared before that Rosemary's Baby was my first adult book & #firsthorrorbook, 'borrowed' from my parent's bookshelf when I was 9/10, so I thought I'd pair it with Summer of Fear, probably the first YA horror book I checked out freely at about the same age. Probably my favorite Lois Duncan, this is the cover I had. I bought a used copy & a copy of the so-bad-it's-good TV movie w/ Linda Blair a few years ago & it's still fun! 😱#AllHallowsRead

LeahBergen I remember Summer of Fear! 3y
