Skeleton Creek The Crossbones by Patrick Carman
Sarah's family has left Skeleton Creek. Leaving Ryan without his best friend. The town has benefitted from the gold found in the old dredge. Ryan's father has purchased a fishing store which he insists Ryan spend his summer working in.
Ryan has a secret from the old dredge that he hasn't revealed to anyone. He shares with Sarah a new clue for another mystery in Skeleton Creek.
Sarah's parents agree to let her drive across country visiting family members on her way to CA for film school. Unbeknownst to them she is also hunting clues in this new mystery. The scary thing is that the ghost from the old dredge seems to be following Sarah.
Ryan is frustrated still being stuck in Skeleton Creek while Sarah once again deals with cemeteries in the middle of the night and the ghost turning up at odd times during her trek.
What mystery are they chasing and will it bring them harm before they solve it?
I liked this installment of the Skeleton Creek series but I was disappointed in the video's this time around. Sarah is no longer showing herself in the video's. I think it is for privacy purposes, but that is what made the other Skeleton Creek books more personable and frightening. Although the book was good it did lack the scariness of the other books. I still enjoyed reading the book and going online to watch Sarah's video's and look forward to the next installment of Skeleton Creek because of course we were left hanging at the end of the book.
