Mary Downing Hahn's Haunting Talesby Mary Downing Hahn
Synopses & Reviews
While camping near Indian Creek, Matt and his best friend, Parker, get up early to see if they can spot a blue heron. Instead, they find the body of a dead man floating in the clear water.
Parker is sure that George Evans, the smooth-talking local antiques dealer, must somehow be connected to the dead man. Matt isnt so sure—but then, on Halloween night, while snooping around Evanss antique shop, the boys make another shocking discovery that puts their own lives in danger.
There are murderous grownups that would do anything to keep what the boys found in the shop a secret, and now theyre after Parker and Matt. Are the boys clever enough to get away? Or will they, too, end up like the dead man in Indian Creek?
Travis and his sister, Corey, can't resist a good trick. When they learn that their grandmother's quiet Vermont inn, where they're spending the summer, has a history of ghost sightings, they decide to do a little "haunting" of their own. Before long, their supernatural pranks have tourists flocking to the inn, and business booms.
But Travis and Corey soon find out that they aren't the only ghosts at Fox Hill Inn. Their thoughtless games have awakened something dangerous, something that should have stayed asleep. Can these siblings lay to rest the ghosts theyve stirred?
Daphne is the weird girl in Jessica's class--the one no one wants to talk to or even be seen with. But when the girls are assigned to be partners in the Write-a-Book contest at school, they find they have a lot in common and start spending time together outside of the project. As their friendship deepens, Jessica stumbles on a terrible secret about Daphne's life. Jessica promises not to tell anyone. But sometimes it takes a true friend to break a promise instead of keeping one.
