Deep Trouble (Goosebumps #19) by R.L. Stine

Published 1992

Billy and his sister, Sheena, are visiting their uncle Dr. Deep on a tiny Caribbean island. It’s the perfect place to go exploring underwater…and Billy’s ready for an adventure. There’s only one rule to remember: Stay away from the coral reefs. Still, the reefs are so beautiful. So peaceful. Billy can’t resist. But he’s not alone in the water. Something’s lurking deep below the surface. Something that’s dark and scaly. Something that’s half-human, half-fish…


I have been a fan of R.L. Stine since I was in the fourth grade. I’m not sure that will ever change. Even though Goosebumps are below my reading level now, I still sometimes find them enjoyable. I read Deep Trouble because it was one that I never got to read. I think that even if I had read it when I was younger, I still would have had the same overall opinion of it.

I love underwater stories. That was another reason I decided to give this a try. It had a good start, but I felt Billy was an annoying narrator. The book’s topic surprised me, but once I was three-fourths in, I’d already expected what would happen next.

Not a bad book, but not one of my favorites in the series, either.
