A Midsummer Night’s Scream is about a teenage girl, Claire, lives in California with her wealthy parents (who own a movie production studio) and her colorful friends. The book begins with a flashback to a famous murder of a group of teenagers who stumbled upon a haunted mansion. Flash forward to Claire and her best friend attending parties and auditioning for a part in the horror-movie remake of the mysterious murder mansion massacre.
While the girls (Claire and Delia) begin filming for the movie they navigate common struggles of teenage girls such as seducing their crushes. This is made more complicated by the fact that Claire and Delia both happen to like a boy that likes the other. Throughout all this, mysterious happenings are taking place on the set such as ghosts appearing and spells being cast. One particularly disturbing and ridiculous scene is when Claire and Delia cast spells on their crushes to make them like them, but the exact opposite happens and they begin to insult and harm them. For instance, Claire’s crush punches her in the face!
This entire book is horribly written and completely irrelevant. It was hard to tell whether the author was serious about the book or was simply deranged, and I found this book impossible to read all the way through.
