Time for another Pike reread

Weekend (Point Paperback) - Christopher Pike

"The weekend in Mexico sounded like a dream vacation. Four guys, five girls - and a gorgeous oceanside mansion all to themselves. It should have been perfect.

 

Except nothing was going the way they'd planned. There was the girl upstairs who was fighting for her life. The phone lines that went dead. And the explosion in the garage that could have killed them all.

 

But not even that prepared them for what happened next. Because while they were getting some sun, someone else was getting revenge - and the terror wouldn't stop until the weekend was over."

Will it be fun, upsetting, or a strange mix of both? So far, too vague to tell.

 

Things I am excited about: that there are possibly at least two separate horrible things going on at once (the dying girl and the revenge), for maximum drama; the possibility that this could be a "the killer picks them off one by one" story (it's horrible, but I'm all "please let the deaths be entertaining!"); and the explosion in the garage, because that sounds awesome.
