An interactive, multimedia read that resembles the Blair Witch Project in delivery and effect. An exciting, unique read for mystery-loving teens who like a good ghost story. Ends in a cliffhanger, so I'll be picking up the sequel right away. The annoying aspects are due only to the fact that I'm not the targeted audience. I would've gone crazy over this book in 8th grade. ( )

Skeleton Creek- Book One

Hearing an old tale about an accident where someone died before his time, makes you wonder if people really do try to come back from the dead. This book is really a journal about this boy, Ryan who has a friend named Sarah. Ryan records everything in his journal that he and Sarah do. They go this place called the dredge. It used to be an old mine, back in the day. There is an old tale about a guy named Old Joe Bush who used to work in the mine, and one day he got dragged under by some gears and died. People say that he is still alive or that his spirit haunts the dredge. Workers have told people that they hear him in the place. Sarah and Ryan had figured out that the workers there a long time ago used like a special Morse code of tapping and banging to communicate in the dredge. Everyone says that they still hear it, and that is Old Joe trying to tell someone something. One day while visiting the dredge, Ryan broke his leg. Sarah was filming and later showed him some interesting things that were on the tape. Later on in the book, Ryan's parents forbid him to hang out with Sarah, so they communicated by computers.

I thought this book was interesting and kept making me wanting to read it because Ryan was constantly trying to figure out if Old Joe Bush was really still alive or just haunting the dredge. I like the way the book was written, like a journal. It lets you know what happens to Ryan daily, and it was easy to read. It was good how the book showed pictures, clues, notes and emails of things. It made it seem real. You can also go on a web site to see some of the videos that Sarah made. That was good too. My favorite part of the story was when Ryan and Sarah broke into the library to research some stuff, and the librarian was sitting at her desk with a shotgun. That was pretty funny. ( )

This was just too much creepy fun, and what an ending... I am glad I stumbled upon this series. I will definitely be recommending it to young readers, especially reluctant ones. ( )
