A wonderful psychological thriller.By J. C. FriedlanderI'd like to start my review by saying that I am currently twenty-five years old and I still have a copy of this book on my shelf.The reason for this is when I was 13 years old, there was a series of horror books out called Point Horror. I was an avid reader at that age and I saved up some money to buy myself some books from this series. This was the very first book I bought, so it will always be special to me.I must admit that when I read this book, I didn't quite understand it, but this was because I did not know at the time that this book was actually the last book in a trilogy (the other two are called The Fog and The Snow) and that it was picking up where the other two books left off.So, I got the other two and read them, then re-read this book.It was absolutely brilliant. The story revolves around thirteen-year old Christina who gets involved in a terrifying psychological mind game with the two malicious Shevvingtons.She watches two friends - Anya, a beautiful, brilliant senior collapse mentally and Dolly, an innocent sicth-grader become a trembling nervous wreck.In this book, the Shevvingtons turn their attention to her and attempt to destroy her ...with fire.I loved this series back then, and I still love it now. Christina knows the Shevvingtons have left a trail of hollowed-out, lost girls in mental hospitals across the country, and she has seen the secret files that prove it. But the Shevvingtons are determined to destroy the evidence and Christina. This time, they'll use fire. They stuff her pocketbook full of matchbooks, scribble flames over her class notes anything they can do to make it look like Christina is obsessed with fire and a danger to herself and others. With summer vacation and safety just weeks away, Christina must make one last desperate attempt to keep her sanity and her life. This is book three in the LOSING CHRISTINA series. From School Library JournalGrade 5-8-- Christina waits out the last few days of school before she can return to her beloved island off the coast of Maine. But first she must outwit the Shevvingtons, who have frightened and manipulated other students while charming adults into looking the other way. Beyond a doubt, Cooney's final novel in her trilogy of terror will be popular with fans of the first two books. However, wooden characterizations of the adults drag these stories down to mediocrity at best. The psycho Mr. and Mrs. Shevvington are not credible, nor is it believable that all the parents blatantly side with them rather than with their children. Teenage readers will not be happy with the dominance of this theme; while YA novels are supposed to speak to their audience, this one does so in a negative, alienating way. --Alice Cronin, Mountainside Public Library, NJCopyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc.
