Overview


This graveyard hides buried dolls...and buried secrets!

The house at Cinder Creek hides many secrets. Shelby and Brian Tate have heard heated voices crying out in the night. They've noticed the unsettling way things move around on their own. But the most chilling thing about their new home is the cemetery someone's built out back. The graves are tiny, only big enough for dolls.

AND THE DOLLS WON'T STAY BURIED.

Soon Shelby's learning all about them. Betsy Anne's angelic appearance hides a raging fire behind her eyes, while Baby Daisy changes faces as quickly as she changes moods. And Miss Amelia's cracked porcelain skin and twisted lips only hint at the pain she once endured at the hands of a very angry girl. If Shelby can help the dolls find peace, she and her family might actually be happy at Cinder Creek. But if she can't--the dolls will have their revenge....

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
05/01/2014
Gr 4–6—As Shelby's life begins to morph into a new normal after her parents' divorce, things get complicated by the dolls in residence at her new house. Formerly owned by her great-aunt, the house has been in her family for years and contains ancient items, among them a collection of dolls seeking revenge for the poor treatment they suffered at the hands of their previous owner. Shelby is haunted by the creepy sounds, and the fact that the dolls won't stay buried in their graveyard. As she learns about former residents, Shelby begins to work through the anger she's harbored since her parents' separation. When the haunting high jinks escalate, it's up to Shelby to make peace with the past both for the sake of the dolls and for herself. The scare factor for this book is fairly tame for the intended audience. The treatment of life for a family post-divorce is realistic and strong. The main character navigates a difficult issue for preteen girls: that of finding her place in the social hierarchy at a new school. The management of Shelby's issues reads a bit stronger overall than the horror sequences, making this a book that could be recommended for more than just those looking for a thrill, especially because the scary elements aren't too graphic.—Samantha Lumetta, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH
