Ghost Beach by R. L. Stine

Ghost BeachDon’t judge me too harshly (an adult reading a tween book)! As my nieces and nephews read their way through tween years, they often mentioned the Goosebumps series and I’ve always been interested in how R. L. Stine, who is a prolific writer, keeps things fresh enough for critical teens to keep coming back. Ghost Beach, while just one in a looooong series of Goosebumps books, was a fun, if speedy, read. The brother and sister who serve as the book’s main characters are likeable and multi-dimensional. The story line is surprisingly plausible, too, with enough details to make it believable. If tweens are enjoying these books, they’re not totally rotting their brains (but I won’t be seeking out more to read myself).
