Skeleton Creek Book 4
by Patrick Carman
Release Date: May 1, 2011
from the publisher's site:
Or so they thought. Because there are still some secrets that Ryan and Sarah haven't uncovered yet. And there's still a shadowy figure standing in their path...someone who doesn't want Ryan and Sarah digging up any more of the past.
I have been hooked on the Skeleton Creek series from the very start. These books are technically marketed as middle grade novels, but they have a lot of crossover potential. It helps that the main characters are all around sixteen. I love the interactive nature of the series also. The format of Ryan's journals makes you feel like you're reading the real thing. Every few journal entries you get a new password for one of Sarah's videos, and it's always fun to check those out and see what she's come up with now.
The Raven wraps up some story lines left over from The Crossbones. I honestly don't know if this is the end of the series or not; the end of The Raven allows for either scenario. I have to say, I really hope Patrick Carman comes out with another one, but even if he doesn't I know he has more interactive titles available.
I highly recommend the Skeleton Creek books for anyone who enjoys a fun, quick, and spooky read.
