“Finally, an author that combines the quiet of a good book with the visual of a movie. Readers can discover Ryan's account of what happened that night at the abandoned dredge and then watch Sarah's video (on a related website) to uncover the mystery that clouds the town of Skeleton Creek. This book is sure to thrill readers everywhere.”

Strange things are happening in Skeleton Creek . . . and Ryan and Sarah are trying to get to the heart of it. But after an eerie accident leaves Ryan housebound and forbidden to see Sarah, their investigation takes two tracks: Ryan records everything in his journal, while Sarah uses her videocam to search things out. . .and then email the clips for Ryan to see.
In a new, groundbreaking format, the story is broken into two parts -- Ryan's text in the book, and Sarah's videos on a special website, with links and passwords given throughout the book.
