“Mrs. Snider,” Duane asked. “Do you know anything about Black Pond?”
“There isn’t some monster drowning children. It’s a dangerous, polluted pond,” she said.
But there is a monster that lurks silently in the water, watching and waiting; hungry for its next meal. Duane has seen THE BEAST OF BLACK POND, and the beast has his scent. The beast hunts him from the pond, to the lake by the dam, even to his own swimming pool. Duane will need all his wits, and the help of his friends if he wants to avoid being pulled under to a watery grave.

My review: It all started with a prank in the pool by Duane’s little sister. He almost drowned, so it wasn’t funny.
While hanging out with friends, he thinks he sees something by the pond.
The pace is rather slow. It just seemed like the kids are constantly talking. When does the beast come out?
Not too exciting.
My rating: 2 stars
