Book Review- Ghost in the Machine by Patrick Carman

Ghost In The Machine (Skeleton Creek) Ghost In The Machine by Patrick Carman

GHOST IN THE MACHINE starts up right where SKELETON CREEK left off - in the secret room of the dredge with the ghost of Joe Bush staring down at Sarah and Ryan. It has all the same creepy videos, wonderful references to great literature and an original mystery and thriller. SKELETON CREEK was a really great introduction to the characters and story, and GHOST IN THE MACHINE was the perfect sequel, bringing the mystery to a shocking close.

Patrick Carman has given kids a wonderful series of books to enjoy. I really hope there will be more in this style of storytelling in his future. The mix of online videos to see in between chapters and the use of characters in literature as the passwords kept me reading to see the next one. SKELETON CREEK was definitely a hard book to follow, but this one is just as great.

Ghost in the Machine releases on October 1st. Be sure to go out and get a copy!
