Overview

It’s the start of the school year, and the popular girls have decided to throw the best party, one their friends will never forget. But hooking up and hanging out are the farthest things from their minds when the unthinkable happens: Someone doesn't make it out of the party alive.

The death is declared a suicide, but nothing quite adds up. Convinced there’s a murderer on the loose, no one knows who they can turn to or who they can trust. Nowhere is safe, not the homecoming dance, not even graduation.

The truth will terrify them, but it must be revealed. Their lives depend on it.

    I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH. I highly recommend it. I am 13. Most would think this book was too mature for me, but I am mature myself. Mothers: if you have a teenager daughter at home that likes to read, PLEASE buy her this book. It may sound weird, but this book actually changed me in a way. I cried several times while reading this book, but it was all out of good. I absolutely LOVED it.

    This description is correct; Remember Me is similar to this series, but once you get into it, it's completely different.
    I loved this book. Bubbly Jessica, intelligent Mike... I liked them all. I found myself feeling terribly sorry for Polly and Alice. I finished this in tears, Beautiful book.

    Could be condensed

    Brought to you by OBS reviewer Angie

    *Beware of possible Spoilers*

    At first glance this 846 page book was overwhelming. I didn’t realize that it was a trilogy and it took me by surprise. This story opens at the beginning of senior year for a group of 4 friends – Alice and her sister Polly, Jessica and Sara – that have had to transfer from one school to another one due to low enrollment at both schools. Amidst having to redefine the popularity hierarchy they decide that having a party with the 30 most popular kids from each school is the best way to merge the power structure and redraw the lines, if you will.

    In the novel The Party one of the girls is found dead and detectives declare it a suicide. Michael has a gut feeling that they’re wrong and sets out to find out who killed her. The story continues into the novels The Dance and The Graduation where in addition to Michael trying to find the killer, we find that the homecoming queen is paralyzed in a freak accident, a school icon is destroyed, and the graduation party ends in disaster. There is certainly no shortage of suspense and teenage drama in this series.

    Although I found the story intriguing, I had a hard time with the character development. They didn’t feel real to me and I had a very hard time relating to them. I didn’t feel that the relationships between characters were developed enough either. The stories were written in the 80s which is coincidentally when I attended high school, so I tried to keep in mind that I am not exactly the target age for these books. But with that in mind, I still would have preferred to see more depth in the people and the plot. I think that this book could easily be condensed into one book of about half the length and still be able to develop the characters and their relationships with each other.

    I would have no problem recommending these books to anyone over the age of 16. But due to drug and alcohol use, sexual activity, and abortion references I would be hesitant to allow anyone younger to read them.

    The description for this book is actually wrong. This is the sum

    The description for this book is actually wrong. This is the summary of the Remember Me, trilogy. I have not read Until the End myself, but I noticed that the description for Remember Me is also wrong.

    A Must Read!

    I became a huge Christopher Pike fan in seventh grade when a friend gave me a copy of "Witch". I then devoured everything with his name in it. The Final Friends Trilogy, originally released in 1988, is my favorite. I still re-read it to this day, 23 years later. I even named my son after Micheal Olson, the hero of the story. I don't know how he does it, but Pike always writes his teenage girl characters with such authenticity. I immediately indentified with Jessica, Sara and Polly. In the book, there is a murder,a near fatal accident, explosions, heartbreak and love. And as with all of his books, you never really know who the bad guy is until the very end. I highly recommend this book, along with all his other works. You may want to check out the "Remember me" trilogy as well as "Master of Murder".
