In the book skeleton man is about a girl thats parents go missing and a guy that says is her uncle take her and takes care of her. She is not safe and can feel that so she plans a way to escape. when she does escape she runs way and he chases her but she gets way and he falls in a river and is never found. I liked this book I though it was good. When the girl was planing her escape I had no idea how she was going to do it but she had a good plan and she got away. This book is a good book to read if you like mystery

This book is very scary and funny. You also think that you are in this story. The scary part is when Molly came home and there was no one home. She waited and today was the day her parents were coming home. She was thinking that they was alright but days went past and she started to get worried that anyone would get worried if they didn't see their parents for days. She did the right thing and told an adult that was her teacher at school. She told the school consular and she didn't have any more relatives around this area. That was the scariest part the next is like when they found her ''so called uncle'' and she knew something was up because he locked her in her room and she was getting scared. This is an understanding book to follow and it's really good and when you start reading it it's really hard to stop. In this story you understand that you can't trust every relative that you have. Molly knew something was up so she didn't eat any of her food and nothing. She didn't tell anyone about what her ''so called uncle'' did and she just wanted to find out more about what is going on. But when her so called uncle wasn't home she went to his little room and there were video camera all over the place. She ran out and went to her room and her uncle came in and he never knew that she was in there. Molly also went in his shed and she also found her parents and they was all crying and happy that she found her, all at once here he came and running after her. She ran and made him fall and ran back.

Skeleton man by Joseph Bruchac is a fictional novel. This was a great book. One of the reasons it's so great it that it's spooky and funny. So if you like that kind of book it's great for you. The setting of this book is at a small town about 1980's. The major conflict is that Molly is trying to find her parents because they were kidnapped, but now she has got a bigger problem. The uncle she never met has come to watch her until her parents come back. She's very suspicious about her uncle and the skeleton man. Molly runs from the skeleton man because he wants to eat her. This was a great idea so she didn't get eaten. Molly had to break her window to distract her uncle. It was a good idea because she needed to escape. Molly's main conflict was dealing with her parents kidnapping. She dealt with it by keeping her faith in hopes to find her parents. The author's style was to use simple vocabulary. This made it enjoyable to read and easier to understand. I recommend it to any age group. They will enjoy it because it is interesting, you never know what's coming up next.
