After reading more grown up stuff for the past years, I felt like I had to lower my thinking a bit to get into this teenage world, but I have enjoyed the story once again.
Trish is being stalked by a man with a thousand faces, and she isn't safe anywhere, even in her own head. The mall, a place of fun and games is suddenly a maze of deadly possibilities, and chased by a madman, real or not, is quite a scary ride.
Very good book, for any age! Enjoy
"Trish smiles into the dressing-room mirror, admiring herself in the gorgeous white dress. Unknown to her, someone else is satching. He knows she is smiling just for him. His soft, strange voice whispers her name from the crowd. His hooded eyes follow her every move....
At first she thinks he's just a creepy customer, hanging around Muffin Mania where she works at the mall. But suddenly he's everywhere, the man with a thousand faces tormenting her day and night. He knows her secrets. There's no safe place to hide. There's no one she can tell, no one she can trust. How can she escape a madman willing to kill to make her his--forevermore."
This is one of the first books that I ever read by Cusick, and I liked it a lot. Trish works at the local mall with her friends Nita and Imogene. There she meets two guys, Wyatt and Storm. She kindof has this thing for Storm, but she can't trust anyone, and he seems mysterious. The reason she can't trust anyone is because there is a weird mysterious guy following her around in the mall, and other places as well. Trish starts to become paranoid, and she has good reason to. She even gets hurt by this weirdo. Read this book to find out what happens, and you won't regret it! The ending is surprising!
Richie Tankersley Cusick has got to be my favorite author. I have loved every book that I have read by her. I know many other people love her books as well, and I don't understand why her books are not being printed anymore! It's so hard to find them!
Here are the other great books that I have read by this author:
Someone at the Door
Trick or Treat
Silent Stalker, which isn't as good as the others, but it is still pretty good.
The story revolves around Trish, a pretty average teen who works in Muffin Mania at the mall (where her two best friends work as well), is forced to endure a pretty nasty manager Bethany, views the gorgeous Storm Reynalds who works at the pizza place across from her as unattainable and possible a big flirt. Ever since she began working at the mall, however, someone has been watching her, planning. It starts with a weird customer, then a chilling phonecall, and she goes from being fairly freaked out to viewing this situation as absurd and not happening after an encounter at night with a "security guard" and a dead body that's dissappeared the next day. Someones stalking her, and as the story enravels you can really feel her desperation an urgency. As she starts to access and trying to figure out motives of the people around her--you can't help but try to as well. It left me guessing throughout.
I'm very fond of Trish's character, which is definitely a must with me. A story looses its status with me if I can't admire or feel for the character. I definitely loved the supporting characters as well, from her two best friends (sisters who couldn't be more opposite of each other) to Storm and another guy Wyatt--who I was intrigued by but could never figure out his connection till the end :) The ending wound everything up great. I definitely recommend this book!
I have such a weak spot for late 80s/early 90s horror cheese so this book was right up my alley. The plot could kind of be described as Phantom of the Mall. Trish and her friends all work at the local mall that is so populated by teenagers in high positions at the stores that one wonders if the town hadn't rewritten child labor laws just to keep the place in business. Things go down hill for her when she suddenly becomes the target for a stalker that I lovingly referred to as The Muffin Man in my head until he was given a name 3/4ths through the book. Hijinks ensue.
This isn't very well written, but its one of those rare gems where its so badly done that it makes you first want laugh out loud and then want to keep reading. The emphasis is always on the wrong word in the sentence, the ellipses abuse gets out of hand, the plot twists and character motivations make no sense, things/people/props pop in and out of scenes without meaning or explanation and to top it off its just plain silly. And yet I enjoyed it and do plan to tuck into another one of her novels asap.
I'd recommend this book to anyone else who had a love for the spooky and suspenseful in teen pulp from this time period who is looking for some inoffensive brain mush.
