Peeled by Joan Bauer

Front Flap: Hildy Biddle is a high school reporter eager to stand up for the truth. She's just waiting for a chance to prove herself as a journalist, and yearning for a big story. The trouble is, the town's biggest story stars... a ghost. Not a very easy interview! This ghost has the town in a tizzy, and the local paper is playing up people's fears with shocking headlines of eerie happenings and ghostly sightings. Hildy's determined to discover what's really going on, but her desire to uncover the truth is making some people awfully nervous. Does the truth have a chance of being heard all over the buzz? Newbery Honor winner Joan Bauer brings her trademark sense of humor, witty dialogue and cast of quirky characters- featuring a strong, feisty heroine- to this funny, thought-provoking mystery. It was alright, compared to Hope was Here and Last Chance Cafe. But I still liked it and it was interesting. All that talk of apples made me kinda go apple-crazy! haha and wanting some apple cider yummmmmmy! But it's a good story of how just a few words in a paper can make people scared. And the truth is made into a lie. Because sometimes even the truth is a lie. Also Hildy is a funny name, does sounds like a hick or something haha. But the story was good about the ghost house and them just scheming to make a theme park. That's sad. Little towns like that are so cute, and don't deserve to be made into anything major if they don't wanna be.
