Skeleton Creek: The Crossbones by Patrick CArman

Publisher:  Scholastic, 2010
Pages:  210
Source:  Purchased
Genre:  Middle Grades Mystery

Ryan and Sarah have gone their separate ways.  After finding the gold and giving it to the town, the mayor gave each resident part of the money.  Sarah’s parents have moved away.  Ryan and Sarah still keep in touch.  When they discovered the gold under the floorboards of the old dredge, Ryan found an envelope.  He took it home and put it in his desk drawer.  The letter has been speaking to him.  He knows the ghost of old Joe Bush still haunts him.  However, he now believes Joe is trying to protect him.  But from what.  When Ryan emails Sarah about the contents of the letter they set into motion another adventure but puts them in danger.  Definitely a must read for those who like the first two books.  This is set up so that you now there must surely be a fourth book.  The video interaction is awesome.    This is a book that my students will love.
