Poison Apple Books: Thrilling. Bone-chilling. These books have bite!

Casey Slater can’t believe her bad luck. It’s the summer before seventh grade, and instead of the perfect vacation she’d planned with her best friend, Casey is in a remote country town, where her parents are restoring an old, creaky, creepy house. Worst of all, everyone else in town thinks the old house is haunted. And soon Casey thinks so, too -- a vase explodes, a heavy china cabinet falls over on its own -- and it seems like the ghost doesn’t want them there. Casey thought she’d be dying of boredom, but now she’s scared to death!

Casey Slater and her best friend, Jillian Morton, have their whole summer planned out, and it is going to be the best summer of their lives. So, when Casey's parents tell her that they have purchased a summer house in Stillness, New Hampshire, far away from their home in Manhattan, she is devastated. What will she do? When they refuse to let her spend the summer at Jillian's house, she must accept that her plans will change. The old farmhouse in Stillness is a dream for Casey's parents. It has plenty of space, and Casey's mom has all kinds of ideas to remodel it. For Casey, who is a bit overly cautious anyway, the house is a nightmare. It's old, dusty, and hot; it needs work; and it feels creepy. Strange things happen beginning the very first day when she finds a message telling her to "Get Out" in the dust on a bedroom mirror. Bizarre events continue to occur, furthering Casey's feelings that something is wrong with this house. After Casey finds the diary of Millicent Amelia Hughes, another twelve-year-old girl who lived in the house in 1939, she starts to have nightmares and then decides she should find out the house's history. The presences of neighbor boy Erik Greer adds some extra excitement to the summer and he tells her some of the rumors about the house. This scary story, a part of the Poison Apple book series, will keep readers going until the very end. There are just enough spooky events to make you wonder what will happen to Casey, what did happen to Millie, and what is wrong with the house. It's a fun and fast read for middle schoolers who like a good ghost story.
