31 Days of Goosebumps Part 1 - 22. Ghost Beach

Book 22: Ghost Beach

I have to start off by saying that the cover to this particular book is awesome. I wish the story lived up to it. It’s not that the book is particularly bad, just lackluster. 

Jerry and his sister Terri visit some distant cousins for a month and make friends with the local kids. Terri loves going into the old graveyard and see tombstones for all the locals. 

They are all named after their ancestors who died 300+ years ago and fear the ghost who lives in the cave. Jerry and Terri go to the cave and meet the “ghost” who turns out to be an old man. He tells him everyone in town is a ghost that he’s been trying to capture but the cave is the only save place to be. 

He destorys the ghosts while sacrificing himself. Terri and Jerry return to their cousins’ house only to discover they are also ghosts.

THE BAD: The plot is basically the same as Welcome to Dead House; just at a beach. 

THE GOOD: Someone actually died in this book which is a rare twist for R.L. Stine. THe book wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t good either. Very mediocre offering from the Goosebumps series.

THE TV SHOW EPISODE: This was the first Goosebumps episode that was made but I couldn’t find anywhere to view it. Not really disappointed though since the book is rather lackluster
