I loved the first book in the series and this second book lives up to that reputation. This is an awesome mystery for middle graders. It was fun, scary, and suspenseful. I love how this series incorporates online videos into the story. Very clever and fun. This is a must read by an excellent author!

Ghost in the Machine The book that I had finished was interesting and exciting mystery. The name of the book is Ghost in the Machine and it is a heck of a ride when you read this book. This book is about a mystery of two kids named Ryan and Sarah it about them finding out the mystery of Skeleton Creek. And were ever they look for a clue it always put the two kids back where they had started. When Ryan and Sarah are trying to uncover the secret of the mystery someone dead or alive is trying to stop. As the stakes get higher, so do the risks. The clues they find the more dangerous it gets for Ryan and Sarah. And the more scare it gets so don' try to get scared because if you get scared the book is working so be careful on what you read in this book because any clue can come up in a blink of an eye and you won't even notice it. My thoughts on the book it is phenomenal because the book is good, it feels like you are one of the protagonist; in the story. My other thoughts are why couldn't the author give out what was go on in the last video of the story because it left me thinking if they ran from the old ship or did they should on for dear life when I started to read Ryan started to talk about it was a ship filled with gold but I kept thinking what about the ship why did it start to shake what happened so yes it left me think I do not know if the author was trying to do that but I think he or she should of put more details on what happened and I'm still wondering so thats a big an annoying thought I have about the book. Most of the characters in the story acted really weird when Sarah asked a question about the ghost in the ship for example Sarah went to a church and a janitor asked her "can I help you" and thats when she asked him and he started to look all pail and scared and he just ran to the back and came back with a video and he said "see this video and that will answer all your questions and you have to bring this back on a Sunday morning". My thoughts were what does he know and why was he so nervous all of a sudden that made me think was he a part of this. The time it mostly to place was at night like around at 12.00 am. But Ryan and Sarah always sneaked out so they can go find out the mystery. But there is a catch both of their parents don't know what they both were doing. My thoughts were that didn't they get a strange feeling that they where going to get cough and if they did what where they going to say I think Ryan and Sarah would get in big trouble and both of their parents where going to is that they both were going to go to the school and maybe put a restraining orders on both kids so they would not get near each other. My other thoughts are why do the parents feel that way have they ever meet with each other because to me they sound like they care for each other. And they wouldn't let someone get heart I guess their parents are just mean they just want their child safe. In conclusion Skeleton Creek is scare and fun to read when you are at home with a flash light in the dark. You can get sacred during day time but you can have fun by having an imagination of being in the story and just having the time of your life you just have to have imagination. Thats what makes it fun to read so I highly recommend it. So go out and get this book because there is not turning back. By, Eduardo Calles

I loved this book and the first. (Haven't read the third. ) and i loved them! They keep you interested, especially when you go online and watch the videos with the codes. I recommened everyone to read this. Probably 12+ since i was like 12 or so when i read the first book, and some of the videos made me jump. xD

The skeleton creek series is amazing. You read the books and they give you passwords to watch spine chilling videos. This book is full of suspense and once you start reading you can't put it down. The first day I got it I finished it. Its the best childrens book I have ever read and I would reccomend it to any child in need of a good THRILLER. I just can't explan how good this book is I love it and I BET you will love it too.It would be a hit if it was a movie. So go on read this mystery story and try to put it down.
