Molly is a 13 year old girl who wakes up one morning to find that her parents never came home. Even a few days later they still do not come home. Molly somehow knows that her parents are out there somewhere and they will come back.
When social services comes, Molly tries to tell them that, but they aren't convinced and they place her with a great-uncle, who she has never met or heard of before. Molly doesn't want to go and live with him, but they give her no choice. There is something strange about him, he is very bony and to Molly, doesn't look human. Nevertheless, she has to live with him.

The house isn't really creepy, it's just this man who is supposed to be her uncle. While living there she tries to avoid him as much as possible by staying in her room. Every day he leaves her food to eat, but she doesn't eat it because Molly thinks he has drugged it, and every night he locks Molly in her bedroom. Molly has to use her intuition and listen to her dreams.

This book is actually based on an old native american legend, which interested me greatly since I am part native america. I wouldn't say the book scared me, I don't get scared very easily though. It was just creepy, I guess you could say and at some parts I just went "Wow!" especially right in the first chapter when Molly told the story of Skeleton Man. I don't know if this book will scare anyone, but even if it doesn't you still want to read more and find out what happens. At least I did. This is a perfect read for Halloween.

This is a wonderful book to read. I enjoyed the plot twists and the mystery of what happened to this girls parents and who her strange uncle is. Who is this strange Uncle? It is the Skeleton man, a "monster" her father told her of as a child has now came to get her and has done something with her parents.I highly reccommend it for young readers or a quick yet exciteing read!
