Chandra Garbanzo review Skeleton Creek

Ryan and Sarah get into mischief when they snoop around an ancient mechanical dredge, and Ryan ends up breaking his leg. Although they are grounded for life, they manage to keep in touch via the internet. While Ryan recuperates, Sarah continues to investigate the mystery of the old dredge and films her adventures for Ryan (and the reader) to follow on-line. Access to the internet is a must for kids who read Skeleton Creek. The School Library Journal says, “The books central flaw: It is not scary.” Perhaps for the teen reader, but I believe it’s got just the right amount of scare for upper elementary school kids, and the end will leave them ready for the sequels: Ghost in the Machine (2009), The Crossbones (2010), and The Raven (2011).
