Student Review Saturday

Patrick Carman is quickly becoming a favorite author of my students. I showed the book Skeleton creek to my students and then on a lab day gave them the web address and passwords to the video portion of the book. I have a list of about 14 students who are waiting for the book. Yes I know that is a backward way to approach a book. However, a lot of my students don't have computers or the Internet at home and this way they were able to view the videos. Uriel read the book and then borrowed the sequel. It is the fastest he has ever read a book. He said he couldn't put it down because it was so good. Here is his review of Skeleton Creek.

The name of the book is Skeleton Creek and the author is Patrick Carman. This book is about a boy named Ryan and a girl named Sarah. Sarah and Ryan went to a haunted dredge and Ryan broke his leg. Their parents did not let them talk to each other. Sarah goes back to the place and takes video and sends it to Ryan to keep him updated and she is showing him what she saw when she played the video. She was going back one more time and Ryan wants to go with her and they get trapped in a basement and Sarah calls their parents. A connection I made with Sarah is that I would want to know if that ghost is there. I really liked this book. It lived up to my expectations. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes ghost stores because it is interesting.

There you have it. If you have not yet had a chance to read this book check it and its sequel "Ghost in the Machine" out. You won't be disappointed.
