Susan Beth Pfeffer (born February 17, 1948) is a retired American author best known for young adult science fiction

Susan Beth Pfeffer (born February 17, 1948) is a retired American author best known for young adult science fiction. After writing for 35 years, she received wider notice for her series of post-apocalyptic novels, officially titled "The Life As We Knew It Series", but often called "The Last Survivors" or "Moon Crash" series, some of which have appeared on the New York Times Bestselling List.

However, it wasn't Susan Beth Pfeffer was born in New York City in 1948. She grew up in the city and its nearby suburbs and spent summers in the Catskill Mountains. When she was six her father wrote and published a book on constitutional law, and Pfeffer decided that she, too, wanted to be a writer. However, it wasn't until 1970 that her first book, Just Morgan, was published.

For the longest time I didn't dare look at an envelope. I know this is hokey, but it's a good way for us to get to know one another. I want every one of you to write just a paragraph or two about what you did during your summer vacation. Everyone in the class groaned. I don't have any advice for you," my brother Mark said. It's going to be very rough. I'd never heard twenty-eight groans at once before.

There’s nothing wrong with lying-until the truth comes out.

Young Margaret Winslow had beauty and a family name, but inside she felt empty. until Nick Sebastian gave her his heart and the strength to stand up for herself. The Sebastian women grew up on the story of their parents’ great love-how their mother had been an orphan, raised by a forbidding aunt, and then, contrary to all expectations, danced with the love of her life at her sixteenth birthday party. There’s nothing wrong with lying-until the truth comes out.

Susan Beth Pfeffer was born in New York City in 1948, and grew up in the city and its nearby suburbs. At the age of six, when her father wrote and published a book, Pfeffer decided she, too, wanted to be a writer; that year, she wrote her first story. She didn't write her first published book, until much later. Just Morgan, a young adult novel, was written during her final semester at New York University, and published the following year. Since then, Pfeffer has been a full-time writer for young people. I want every one of you to write just a paragraph or two about what you did during your summe r vacation. I'd never heard twenty-eight groans at once befor e. It was pretty impressive. Playing the role of a happy pageant winner is not exactly the acting career Kit had in mind Kit Carson keeps trying to tell people that she didn't do anything.

The truth isn’t the most comfortable choice, but it’s the only one with any future. Sloan Fredericks can still remember the weeks she spent in the hospital when she was nine, the only survivor of the accident that killed her parents and little brother

The truth isn’t the most comfortable choice, but it’s the only one with any future. Sloan Fredericks can still remember the weeks she spent in the hospital when she was nine, the only survivor of the accident that killed her parents and little brother. Now she lives with her grandmother in the kind of grand old house you’d expect from a family known for both their wealth and their political prowess.

When her two best friends leave to go to another school, eleven-year-old Cathy tries to replace them with the "perfect" Jessica.

I share a name with a character in this book and feel each one of my nieces and nephews need and copy for their home, as well as a copy in my classroom and guest room.
Love the fear street series!
April, her best friend Jenny, and Jenny’s boyfriend Ken, are invited to Dara’s ski condo for a couple days of fun. There they run into some of Dara’s acquaintances. They then decide to play a little game to get to know each other, but a fun game of truth or dare turns deadly when one questions sets off one of the guests, leading them to murder. Dun, dun, DUN!

Truth or Dare was SO good! It had many great plot twists I did not expect at all! Who the murder was and their motive, a twist about the murder itself, and even twistier twists surrounding the secret, the “truth,” that actually set off this person... it was insane!! Truth or Dare was suspenseful with a great setting, and an even better mystery! This is definitely one of the best Fear Street books I have read!

The Fear Street connection: I don't actually know for sure because, believe it or not, Fear Street isn't even mentioned! However, we do know that the kids live in Shadyside, so I'm guessing one of the kids (probably April, since she is the main character) lives on Fear Street.
And we have another typical Fear Street book with crappy characters being crappy and the ending coming out of nowhere with a barely strung-together plot. How surprising. I think for the last bit of Summer of Cheese I’m going to stay away from Fear Street. It’s getting far too redundant and annoying.

So you have a bunch of teenagers going to use a rich chick’s parents’ ski house for a few days and they end up getting snowed in. To pass the time they play Truth or Dare and it riles some feathers that cause one of the residents to go off the rocker and start killing people. That’s one hell of a game.

You have more characters who don’t have any general concern for the world around them so they’re crappy to each other, don’t have much concern for each other beyond what it would serve them. So when people start dying or getting hurt it’s brushed off fairly easily. Not surprising. So I couldn’t get behind any of them although I will say the protagonist (whose name escapes me, it’s not Dara) was okay but she’s really just a conduit for the story. She didn’t have a whole ton of personality of her own.

When weird things started happening I didn’t really care. Everyone was already back-biting and getting snippy with each other so why should I? When the plot finally resolved the culprit was pretty out of nowhere. I mean, I guess a connection could be made but the way the plot was written it was never intoned that this person could be committing these crimes so, like a lot of Fear Street books the ending was like, ‘oh, by the way, it was this person that you’d never suspect because there wasn’t any reason for you to suspect them.’

I’m coming to the conclusion that these books really don’t stand the test of time. It doesn’t necessarily seem like a market thing because Fear Street books are pretty much alone in the crappy characters being crappy to each other arena. So I think it was just Stine’s style when it came to writing YA. This kind of thing doesn’t show in his Goosebumps books and I haven’t read any of his adult novels. So I think it was just a thing that sold. With the new Fear Street I don’t find that level of character crap so I think it was updated somewhat for the current market while keeping its original creep factor. These old ones, though, the market just can’t bear them anymore. They’re far too lacking in depth for today’s teen.

This book was really fun to read. April, the main character, narrates the book. She and some other teens (Dara, Josh, Jenny, Ken, Carly, and Tony) share a ski cabin for the weekend. They plan to have fun. At first, it is not snowing. (No snow is not good for skiing.) Then it starts snowing. In fact, snowing so hard that the snow is coming down in thick, heavy, swirling flakes; it is so thick that you can't hardly see in front of you and you feel as though you are in a snow globe that is all shook up. (Too much snow is not good for skiiing, either.) I love the snow descriptions; I felt as if I was in crunching, powdering, thick snow. (I do not get snow very often, and when I do, it is not very thick; therefore, I love "imaginary" snow.)

Because the weather is not yet suitable for skiing, the teens are stuck inside. But they have plenty of good food and hot coffee. They play Truth or Dare (since they can't go outside). But during a Truth or Dare game, secrets might accidently get revealed . . . Will a particular secret lead to murder?

This is a horror book, so of course, someone is found murdered. (I will not say who or why, because I don't want to ruin the book.) April is horrified because there is a killer in the cabin. No one can leave because the snow is unrelentingly trapping them inside the cabin, and the snow storm made the phone lines go out. They can't leave, and they can't call the police. Trapped in a ferocious snowstorm, in a cabin with a killer and a dead body in the garage.

But April finds clues . . . Will she figure out who the killer is? Will she ever be able the leave the cabin? Will she be safe?
Truth or Dare by R.L. Stine was the third Fear Street book that I have read, and I have never been able to stop reading these books. They are really great. This book starts out when a couple of friends were asked to go skiing for the weekend with a friend. There was a big snow-storm outside and that meant that they couldn't go skiing. They begin to start to play a game of truth or dare. A terrible secret gets out, but no one really makes a big deal about it until one of their friends is found dead outside and another missing. When they find out that two of their friends are dead, they start to suspect each other. With no car and no phone, there is no way to get home. You will not want to put this book down. This book is very good with a twist in the end. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to have chills run up their spine.
