Keyes life is complicated enough. She lives in a senior citizen's
building with her grandmother and has to sneak in and out using the fire
escape. And Heather Acosta has been calling up Jared, the most popular
boy in school, and pretending to be Sammy. It is really embarrassing,
especially when Jared's girlfriend starts yelling at Sammy
in front of the whole school.
So when Sammy decides
to pull a Halloween prank on the Bush Man, she isn't really looking
for trouble. She's just going to knock on the door and run. But when
she knocks on the door, the door opens…and there's no one there.
And so begins the mystery of Sammy Keyes and the Skeleton Man,
by Wendelin van Draanen. (Debbie Gray, School Library Media Specialist,
