Book Preview: The Crossbones

The Crossbones (Skeleton Creek, #3)I learned, while reading The Crossbones, that I’m a lightweight when it comes to scary/suspenseful stories, especially when there isn’t a synopsis to read that outlines every detail. I believe that Patrick Carman is a genius, though. Marrying storytelling with movie making adds an edge of suspense to the novels that I don’t think could have been accomplished as successfully with print text alone.

It’s no wonder that the Skeleton Creek series is so popular with my students. I hope the fourth book (because there’s at least one more) is worth the wait. I imagine it will be.

Check out the Scholastic trailer for more info about The Crossbones and the entire series.
