Today’s Way Back Wednesday post is dedicated to an old favorite o’ mine: Ski Weekend, by R.L. Stine!

Author R.L. Stine is like the Steven King of YA. Out of all the Fear Street books, Ski Weekend has stuck with me. (In particular, a scene involving a kiss and carrot cake breath… I have no idea why that left such an impression on me, but nevertheless, it did!)

I loved this novel because of the edge-of-your-seat suspense that made the book difficult for me to put down. I don’t know if I would be able to fully lose myself in this series now as an adult, as I did as a pre-teenager, so I don’t want to reread it so I can keep my fanship alive in my heart.

Book Synopsis:
“Red” Porter was a stranger they’d met on their ski weekend. But Ariel Munroe, Doug Mahr and his girlfriend Shannon Harper were grateful he was there when they set out for home on the icy roads. Thank heaven for Red! He spotted the hilltop lodge when they were stranded by the blizzard. He took charge when they stumbled into strange surroundings, scared, tired and looking for refuge. But can he save them when their refuge becomes a trap?

Suddenly their hosts are acting very sinisterly. Doug’s car is gone. The phones are dead. And the house is full of guns. If they steal one, maybe they can escape! Until a shot is fired and the real terror begins…
