Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Stine delivers a fast and breezy vampire tale punctuated with a few nasty shocks. The summer before senior year, high schooler Destiny Weller and her twin sister, Livvy, are trying to put their mother's suicide behind them and are working as camp counselors. Each is attracted to-and bitten by-Lorenzo "Renz" Angelini, an ancient vampire masquerading as a hunky staff member. Back at home, Destiny and Livvy have no recollection of Renz, but both are secretly overcome by a sudden lust for blood. Gory scenes of the sisters killing and feasting on small animals will sate horror fans ("And both girls buried their faces in the warm body, and fed... fed so hungrily on the warm blood"). As the sisters race to find the so-called Restorer, who alone can cure their condition, Renz appears in another guise and stalks Destiny to make her a full vampire. As in his Fear Street books, Stine sends his characters through the details of a plot that is basically all chase; the few glimpses of the sisters' everyday life won't slow down readers who like their chillers quick and light. Ages 12-up. (Aug.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
VOYA
Here is a vampire story with all the requisite ingredients: a young, rash girl; a dark, handsome stranger; odd happenings at a summer camp; an underground group of vampire hunters; and an old (hundreds of years) romance. Sisters Destiny and Livvy could not be more different. Destiny is the conscientious one, and Livvy is ruled by her passions, but one thing binds them together. When they return from summer camp they both share a strong abhorrence of light and a driving need to hunt small creatures and drink their blood. Destiny is horrified and wants to do everything in her power to save herself, but her sister is excited by her newfound power. A change is coming upon them, and if Destiny does not find a cure before the next full moon they could be condemned to endless life. There are no surprises in this book that resurrects all of the archetypes of the vampire story. Stine does a competent job of tying together quite a few separate story lines. The mystery surrounding the girls' father's true vocation is the glue that holds the tale together. This fast read is perfect for a summer afternoon. Die-hard vampire fans and those saddened by the demise of Buffy's television show will eagerly read this title. VOYA Codes: 2Q 4P M J (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q; Broad general YA appeal; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9). 2003, HarperCollins, 256p,
— Alison Kastner
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-As this story opens, Destiny and Livvy are completing their summer jobs as camp counselors. Their mother committed suicide only months before, and they found the camp a healing environment. Little did they know that one of the other counselors, a mysterious and very handsome young man with an Italian accent, would be the cause of much tragedy and distress for the twins in upcoming weeks. While at camp, Renz had drawn each teen away, revealed his true identity, and then sucked her blood. His ritual was interrupted with Destiny, however, and she did not reciprocate, making her a neophyte. Renz then followed her home to await the full moon and another opportunity, but animals and even some of the twins' friends turn up dead while he waits-all of their blood completely drained from their bodies. This is standard fare for Stine-short chapters each ending with a hook, very little character development, and predictable story lines. There are a few surprises, but nothing particularly innovative. However, teens will immediately gravitate to the teenage girls on the cover and the enticing title, and Stine's many fans will be satisfied.-Kimberly L.

Meet the Author

R. L. Stine

R.L. Stine began his writing career at the age of nine and has been at it ever since, becoming a bestselling author several times over. Among his many groundbreaking credits are Fear Street, the first young adult horror series, and Goosebumps, the bestselling series that made Stine the #1 bestselling author in America for three years in a row. He lives with his wife in New York City.

Biography

Goosebumps cast a spell upon children by transforming even the most reluctant students into avid readers. Despite the fact that almost every book has a different collection of characters, the series has one common element that kids can't get enough of: the author!

However believable his plots seem to his readers, Stine insists he has never lived one of his stories. "I've never turned into a bee -- I've never been chased by a mummy or met a ghost. But many of the ideas in my books are suggested by real life. For example, one Halloween my son, Matt, put a mask on and then had trouble pulling it off. That gave me the idea for The Haunted Mask."

Although he never experienced terror first hand, he did enjoy reading about it. "When I was a kid, there were these great comic books called Tales From The Crypt and The Vault of Horror. They were gruesome. I discovered them in the barbershop and thought they were fabulous. I used to get a haircut every Saturday so I wouldn't miss any of these comic books. I had no hair at all when I was a kid!"

His ideas came from two sources: his memory and his imagination. "When I write, I try to think back to what I was afraid of or what was scary to me, and try to put those feelings into books." He also keeps a tribal mask and a skeleton hanging in his writing studio to provide eerie surroundings. Although he handles the writing by himself, Stine says he gets "lots of help from my editors, my readers, and my friends."

Kids reading Goosebumps may be looking for a scare, but the laughs they get are no accident. Before he was R. L., he was Jovial Bob, author of such works as 101 Silly Monster Jokes, and Bozos on Patrol and editor of Bananas magazine. His ability to know what kids will laugh at , as well as what will frighten them, makes the Goosebumps series all the more enjoyable for his readers.

Stine started writing when he was 9 years old! He would write stories and jokes on an old typewriter and hand them out at school. "The teacher would grab them and take them away," Stine says, "but I kept doing it." He wrote for his high school newspaper in Columbus Ohio. After graduating from Ohio State University, he moved to New York City, where he worked on a variety of writing jobs.

Although his books are fun and exciting, writing them is serious stuff. He treats writing "...like a job." To unwind after work he enjoys playing the pinball machine conveniently located in his own apartment.

For aspiring authors, Stine feels reading is as important as writing. He offers this advice: "If you want to be a writer, don't worry so much about writing. Read as much as you can. Read as many different writers as you can. Soak up the styles. You can learn all kinds of ways to say things." As a boy he read Norse legends, Greek myths, Edgar Allan Poe and baseball stories. "And Mad Magazine changed my life." Author biography courtesy of Scholastic, Inc.

Good To Know

In our interview with Stine, he shared some fun and fascinating facts with us:

"My first job in New York was making up fake interviews with movie and TV stars for a group of six movie magazines. I never spoke to the stars I wrote about. I wrote three-to-four "interviews" a day, all out of my imagination."

"'I've written over 300 books but I never learned to type. I use only one finger, the pointer on my left hand -- that's all. Three hundred books on one finger! The finger is very ugly now -- completely bent and curled and callused. When I show it to audiences, they can't believe it! This is my sacrifice for my art!"

"Sometimes kids show up at my country house and ask if my son Matt can come out and play. That's because they saw him mentioned in the back of my books. But they're very disappointed when he comes to the door -- because Matt is in his mid-twenties now! They were reading very old books! Matt is a musician, composer, and sound designer. You can hear his music at my web site, www.rlstine.com."

"I hope my readers get a chance to see my 4-D movie, R. L. Stine's Haunted Lighthouse. The movie stars Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Lea Thompson, Weird Al, and others. You can find it playing at four parks: SeaWorld San Antonio, SeaWorld San Diego, Busch Gardens Tampa, and Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Virginia. Watch out -- you might get very wet!"

Chapter One

The Most Dangerous Day

Summer can't be over already. Do I really have
to leave Camp Blue Moon?

That's what Destiny Weller was thinking on the day she started to become a vampire.

She watched the yellow bus rumble away, carrying the last of the campers with it. The bus bounced over the narrow dirt road, then turned and disappeared into the trees.

"Hey, we're free!" someone yelled. "The little animals are gone!"

"Party time!"

"Who has car keys? Can we get a keg? Can we at least get some six-packs?"

A red afternoon sun was sinking behind the trees. The air suddenly carried a chill, a hint that summer was nearly over.

Destiny turned and searched for her sister, Livvy. The counselors gathered around the grassy hill that overlooked the road, laughing and joking, hugging each other, celebrating the end of the camp season.

She spotted Livvy in a circle of girls clustered around Renz. He was flirting with them, hugging them one by one. All the girls adored Renz, and why not?

He was so good-looking, tall and tanned, with that wavy, black hair, those dark, bedroom eyes - devilish eyes - that irresistible smile. So charming and funny and ... grown-up.

Not like the other guys in camp, Destinythought. Not like the counselors and junior counselors whose idea of a good time was going skinny-dipping in the lake after lights-out, or putting snakes in each other's beds.

Renz was too sophisticated for that.

Destiny didn't really know much about him. She knew that his real name was Lorenzo Angelini, and he had just a hint of an Italian accent, which made him even sexier. He had been hired as head waterfront counselor. But when Uncle Bob, the owner of Camp Blue Moon, suddenly took sick just before the kids arrived, Renz became head counselor.

"I see who you're staring at." Nakeisha Johnson came up behind Destiny and grabbed her shoulders, startling her.

Destiny laughed. "He's looking good in those tennis whites, isn't he!"

"Summer's too short," Nakeisha said. "Think I could follow him home? Maybe he'll adopt me."

"Actually, I'm watching my sister," Destiny said. "Do you believe those short shorts? You can see half her butt."

Nakeisha gazed at the crowd of girls around Renz. "Well don't turn green or anything. You know you're jealous. Renz spent so much time with Livvy."

"All the guys spent time with Livvy," Destiny replied. She watched Renz give Livvy a farewell hug, holding her close, his hands all over her bare back.

"Stop shaking your head," Nakeisha said. "How can identical twins be so different?"

"I told you. We're fraternal. Not identical," Destiny said.

"Oh. Right. Well, that explains it," Nakeisha replied, rolling her eyes.

"I'm fifteen minutes older," Destiny said. "See. I've got to act like the older sister."

A yellow jacket buzzed around them. Destiny swatted it away. High in the darkening sky, a flock of honking geese flew in perfect V-formation, making its way from Canada. On the road below, the camp station wagon sped past, tires spinning up dust, jammed with counselors heading to town to buy beer.

"Everyone's acting happy, but this is so sad," Nakeisha said. "Tomorrow we'll all go our separate ways. I won't see you anymore." She turned and wrapped Destiny in a hug.

Destiny hugged her back. "You've been such a good friend. I really am going to miss you."

Both girls had tears in their eyes.

"At least you're going home to New York," Destiny said, letting go. She ran a hand through her short, straight blond hair. "Not boring little Dark Springs, Mass."

Nakeisha wiped tear stains off her cheeks. "I just got something in my eye, that's all. It's not like I hate saying good-bye or anything. You've got my e-mail address, right? And my cell number?"

Destiny nodded. "We can Instant Message each other."

"Maybe you can come to New York for Thanksgiving?"

Destiny laughed. "Yeah, if I win the lottery or something."

"Hey, know what? I'll be doing college visits in September and October. I know I'll be in Boston. Maybe I can come through Dark Springs."

"Excellent!" Destiny said. Over Nakeisha's shoulder, she saw Livvy, cigarette in hand, lip-locked with Cory Field, one of her many admirers. His arm around her shoulders, Cory began to lead Livvy toward the trees by the lake.

"Livvy—wait!" Destiny shouted. She took off running. "Hey, Liv - stop!"

Her sister turned and took a long drag on the cigarette. Cory kept his arm around her. "Hi, Dee. What's up?" Livvy asked.

"How's it going?" Cory said. "Pretty quiet without the kids, huh?"

Destiny nodded. "Liv, you haven't started packing," she said.

"Yeah, I know."

Destiny stared at her sister. Livvy did everything she could to look different from her twin. Destiny wore her hair short, so Livvy kept hers long, letting it flow down over her shoulders. Destiny hardly ever wore makeup, just a little blush and lip gloss from time to time. Livvy liked purple or dark red lipstick, and her biggest suitcase this summer had been filled with eye makeup.

Livvy had one nostril pierced, usually wore three different earrings in each ear, and loved to wear rings on every finger. She wanted to get a butterfly tattoo on her shoulder, but held off, knowing her dad would give her all kinds of grief.

Destiny would never admit it to anyone, but she secretly admired her sister for having so much style.

Livvy was always trying to give her a make-over. One night last year when they were juniors, she allowed Livvy to work on her - lipstick, mascara, even streaks in her hair. When she had finished, Livvy started to smile ...

    WHAT A BOOK!!

    Okay, I have to admit, I really don't like many R.L Stine books that much, but this book caught my eye. I have a little obsession with the demonic vampire type thing, so I decided to buy this book. I finished it within the second night of reading it, I just couldn't put it down! Livvy and Destiny are awesome characters for this book, and you can relate to some of the things they are going through. I love how the plot twists, how I don't know what's going to happen next. I recommend this to anybody who has thought of what vampires are like, or anybody who even likes them. It's an awesome vampire book, and I'd highly suggest that you read it; It'll be well worth it. It has plenty of twists and turns. In some places you can't even tell what will happen next. I loved the suspense and surprises and it really kept me on edge.

    Dangerous Girls by R.L. Stine

    Are you a fan of R.L. Stine and/or vampires? Then this is the book for you.

    A summer in camp will chage their lives forever.

    Sixteen-year-old Destiny Weller and her twin sister, Livvy, are both beautiful and smart but are very different. Everyone at camp loves Renz, including the twins but they don't know that he's not really human.

    We they return home from camp they start to notice changes. They crave for blood, the sun disturbs their eyes, and they see and hear things differently. What have they become?

    Will the girls stick together and try to find the "Restorer" who would be able to turn them back to human? Will it be difficult to search for this "Restorer"? What happened to them? Will they both survive? These questions would be answered when you read this book.

    Another Great Masterpiece By R.L. Stine

    This book was excellent. I loved the suspence and suprises and it really kept me on edge. R.L.Stine is my favorite author, I have read 91 of his books. I am not going to tell you what happened in this book because I'll spoil it for you. All I can say is Dangerous Girls was a really terrific book and I loved it. I am R.L.Stine's biggest fan and you should read Dangerous Girls, it was terrific!!!

    Dangerous girls.

    I was very disappointed with this book. I had read some of R.L Stine's other novellas and this one did not compare. Also, he is no Stephan King, but he has done better work in the past. I find this very unappealing. Don't get me wrong, it was an alright book.... just not something that I would truly recommend to a friend or someone that was actually interested in a great book. A true disappointment is not a good thing. The characters in the book were not well deciphered. I got confused between the twins a lot. I had to re-read some pages 4-5 times just to figure out what was going on. Sorry, R.L Stine... Nothing compared to your others.

    this book was ok

    Yes there r better books but this one wasn¿t half bad for R.L. Stine I felt like he invented more into this book them many of his other books. I didn¿t even know that this book was by R.L. Stine till after I read it. I think that this book kind of makes you think about what you would do. This book was not scary at all it was just kind of sad. The ending really surprised me which is hard to do. So yeah I recommend this book for people who like vampire books.

    dangerous girls- an dangerously disapointing book

    Dangerous Girls looked like an extremely good book sitting on the shelf in the library. However, when I started to read it, I began to find myself bored out of my mind. Yes, at sometimes it would start to get good, but then in a few sentences it would become 5th grade material again. With this being by R.L. Stine, I found this book not like him at all. He has written much better.

    Dangerous Girls by R. L. Stine- A Horror story

    'Dangerous Girls' is a wonderful book. The author makes you believe that all that happens in the story could be real. The story revolves around Livvy and Destiny, two twins. They come home from a summer camp, only to realize they are neophites, half vampires. Determined to become human agian, Destiny tries to get information from Ari, a close friend that's into the supernatural.Livvy isn't too much of a help for finding a cure though. The author, R.L. Stine, really describes his characters, Livvy and Destiny well. He gives you the image of the twins in your mind as though you've known them for a long time. He describes their personalitys and physical appearance in great detail. For example, he tells of how Livvy has flirted relentlessly with every guy at the summer camp. R.L. Stine makes you feel as though Dark Springs, the place Livvy and Destiny grew up in 'Dangerous Girls', is somewhere you and your family have visited every summer. You end up feeling as though if you were placed in Dark Springs, you could find the dance club, Livvy's house, the school, or the coach's house. This monster horror story gives you insight into the world of frightening vampires, unknowing humans, and vampire hunters. If you want a book that is entertaining, makes you see that movie of it in your head, and makes you want to know more, then here you are. Read 'Dangerous Girls' by R.L. Stine to find out more and be entertained. I loved this book and I'm sure you will too.
