    My Lois Duncan jag concludes with Summer of Fear, a supernatural thriller first published in 1976 and revised by the author in 2011 to account for changes in communication that would deflate much of her plot if the story took place in the present. I'm not wild about the trend to update Young Adult thrillers published in the 1970s or '80s for readers of today. Duncan's books are scarier when her teenage heroines can't rely on smartphones, the Internet or helicopter parents to help them overcome e [...]

    Still freakin' scary and still one of my best 7th grade booktalks. Lois Duncan knows how to work the fear nerve!

    Do you like books about magic spells or witchcraft well this is the right book for you! The genre to this book is fantasy fiction with a little bit of realistic fiction. My opinion to this book is that it is great it is creepy in a way and makes you feel like you are actually there in the experience. There will be SPOILER ALERTS in the book so be aware. So this book takes place in day and night in a house of this girl named Rachel. So what happens in this book is that what suddenly tragic just h [...]

    Rachel is fifteen, has a great boyfriend and a great family. But one day they get horrible news: Rachel's mother's sister and her husband were killed in a car accident. Their daughter, Julia, is now all alone. But Rachel's mother and father get ready to go get their niece. They hardly know her, but she is family. And Rachel is fine with this. Sure, it will take some getting used to sharing her room with someone, but it will be like having an older sister.Everything was going well. At least for a [...]

    4 stars for content but gave only 3 because of edits. I absolutely loved Lois Duncan's books as a young adult reader. They were creepy, twisty stories but not so scary, I had to sleep with the light on. This story is still a fun read as an adult. Reading it as an adult made me think of the draw of this storya teenager who knows something is horribly wrong but none of the adults will listen to her and then they find out she is right. Who of us didn't have some kind of fantasy like that in the mid [...]

    This is a solid 3.5 star read for me. This book was originally written in the 70s and revised in the 2000s. I have no clue what all she changed but I noticed her referring to Harry Potter and cell phones to make the book more relevant. When I bought this book I didn't connect to the fact that I had already seen the film that was based on this book. Yes, this book has a very, unknown film that stars Linda Blair and was directed by Wes Craven. The movie actually followed the book pretty decent. Th [...]

    3.5 starsIn terms of the atmosphere in the novel and the general enjoyment that I got from this story, this should probably get a bit more than 3 stars. I am well aware that this is an oldie and that I am probably not in the target audience of this book any more, but I was a bit disappointed by it. I found it way to simple and a bit too predictable, but I did enjoy reading it, aside from that jerk of a love interest and Rae's parents, who had no problem calling their own daughter a witch, pointi [...]

    Reread for the umpteenth time. This book is so. freaking. good.

    Have you ever felt overshadowed by a prettier, more popular relative? Maybe a sibling, or a cousin? Someone who you think is just the worst person in the world, but everyone seems to love and make excuses for? And no matter how much you protest, that person is always held in highest regard, and YOU'RE the hysterical and mean one?Have you considered that perhaps your relative is a practicing witch? Because Lois Duncan sure has!Rachel lives a fairly good life in Albuquerque. She's close to her par [...]

    Summer of Fear was written in 1976 for young adults and has won several book awards: California Young Reader Medal for Vermont Young Readers Award, Vermont Young Readers Award and the New Mexico Young Readers Award. I chose to read this book for my "Lifetime of Books" challenge. If I hadn't had that challenge, I'm certain I never would've read this book. That being said, it was an entertaining read. I borrowed the audio version from the library and, although the narrator's voice didn't fit, IMO, [...]

    The book Summer if Fear by Louis Duncan, in my eyes was one of the best books that I had ever read. The book is about a teenager named Rachel who had been looking forward to summer all year an when it finally arrives is overjoyed. She has a loving family, an amazing best friend, and the best boyfriend that a boy could ask for. All of they changed though when she came. When her family learned that their aunt and uncle had died they decided to adopt their cousin into their lives. This would be the [...]

    This was a reread for me.I read all of Lois Duncan's books as a teenager. This is a good mystery chiller, very much written in the style of the vintage gothic romanceswitched identities, murder, witchcraft.It's an excellent YA read, but also just generally is a good, quick book.You can find a full review later this week on my YA Horror Review blog:yahorrorrevisited/

    It was awfully predictable and not at all that scary, perhaps the original 1976 version would have been better. This version was rather boring :/

    Summer of Fear is one of several stories written by noted author Lois Duncan (I Know What You Did Last Summer, Hotel for Dogs) famous for her young adult novels. It is told in the first-person from the perspective of Rachael, a teenage girl living an idyllic life in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the late 1970's. Rachael enjoys a loving, close-knit family (including two brothers), a best friend, and a dog named Trickle. Despite her hangups about her curly red hair, Rachael also has a cute boyfriend [...]

    ***Spoiler Alert* ** what would you do if your cousin was evil. i think this book is science fiction because there is lots of creepy things like black magic. In my opinion i really liked this book i love reading this type of book with mystery and suspension. This book takes place in a neighbor hood in Mexico and took place in the percent. The main characters is Rachael, Julie Rachel's parents and Mike. This story talks about a girl named Rachel that seems to have a perfect life her parents love [...]

    I inhaled Lois Duncan's books as an adolescent. They felt dangerous, and sometimes mind-blowing (like the one about astral projection, for example!) without being the gore-fest of horror books intended for adults. I felt older, wiser, cooler, and harder for having read them. I decided to revisit one as part of my reading goals for this year. I wasn't aware when I checked it out that Summer of Fear was part of a rerelease of a number of Duncan's books, with edits for the modern reader. I don't th [...]

    After Rachel's aunt and uncle die in a car accident, her orphaned cousin, Julia, comes to live with the family. Rachel tries to be welcoming, but there's something about Julia she doesn't quite trust. It may be the fact that everyone is Team Julia all of a sudden and Rachel feels left out, but she's pretty sure there's more to it than simple jealousy. After a little research, she starts to suspect that Julia's actually a witch (and it's a little more like The Craft than, say, Sabrina the Teenage [...]

    Fifteen-year-old Rachel’s life gets turned upside down when her orphaned 17-year-old cousin, Julia, from the Ozarks moves in with them when her parents are killed in a car accident. Not only does Rachel have to share her bedroom with her unfamiliar cousin, but Julia quickly wins over Rachel’s brothers and parents who are entranced by her charming ways. Only Rachel seems to notice the new unusual happenings, like how the friendly family dog immediately dislikes and bites Julia or how Julia’ [...]

    All of Lois Duncan's suspense novels that I've read have been fun, entertaining, and thrilling, and this one, in which orphaned cousin Julia comes to live with Rachel and her family after Julia's parents have been killed in a fiery car crash, is no exception. Bad things start happening soon after she moves in, and it soon becomes apparent that there's something not quite right about Julia, to put it mildly.The book I read is the revised, updated version. The modernizing of the text wasn't necess [...]

    Rachael's cousin Julia is going to be living with her family. Julia's parents died in a car accident and Rachael's parents took her in. At first, Rachael likes Julia but as the story goes on, Rachael starts to become suspicious. Julia has "stolen" Rachael's best friend, her boyfriend, and her bedroom. Rachael then discovers that this Julia was not her real cousin. She is a witch. I think that this book is good, and it's for people who like mystery books. i think that i can connect to Rachael a b [...]

    I remember our 6th grade teacher reading this TO us in elementary school. When does THAT happen anymore? Anyway, it was surprising for me to learn that this same author wrote the more well-known "I know what you did last summer". But that's beside the point.A CREEPY thriller, and one that (in retrospect) I can't believe our teacher read to us. Very adult themes in some places, but definitely touted as Juvenile fiction. I re-read it a few years ago and was surprised to find it retained a lot of i [...]

    This was a fast, simple read. It was the type of book I would have picked up when I was 15, but regardless I enjoyed it! I originally wanted to see the film starring Linda Blair and when I saw that it was based on a book by Lois Duncan i figured I'd check the book out first. I'm glad I did because it was a fun tale of good vs. bad, and how the bad people can usually convince everyone that they are the good person. I was flipping pages very quickly to see how this one was going to be resolved. I [...]

    Dichotomy Girl
    This is the Lois Duncan book that I remember the most from my childhood, as I owned a beat up paperback of it (complete with missing cover), that I probably read at least 25 times. I'm not going to lie, even after the re-reads (or first reads in the case of some) this one is still in the lead as my favorite.

    First Second Books
    I am so in love with these redesigned covers of some of my favorite scary books from childhood (even if the books themselves will still give me nightmares.)

    I was So mad at Julia! (Sarah) I hated it!

    fave boooookkkkkkk

    This one was really weird, more about the supernatural. Kind of interesting, but strange.

    Jimbo Pantas
    It was okay.

    I read this book exactly a year ago, only then it was called One Evil Summer by R.L. Stine. Of course, Lois wrote hers first so she gets the credit, but if you've read one then you've read both. If you want an in-depth review of this same plot, you can seek out my review for One Evil Summer. But if you are too lazy to do that (and I don't blame you), then I will give you the short and short of it below.Girl has a good life.Said life is interrupted by another girl disturbing the family dynamics.

    The version of Summer of Fear that I've read is the updated version, with references to a more contemporary setting. I think I probably would've found this book to be a lot scarier if I was younger, but some of the themes are ever-green. For example, the issue of what happens when you suddenly acquire a new sister, in a aftermath of a family tragedy, who seemingly replaces you in your family and who attracts the attention of your boyfriend too. (view spoiler)[ And to boot, it seems like her infl [...]
