Sammy Keyes and the Skeleton Man by Manny
I am a huge fan of Sammy Keyes and Wendelin Van Draanen. This was a very satisfying book to read, and I’m sure you’d enjoy the mystery and humor. This was my first official book that I completed for the “Reading Like a Fan” unit, so I got one down and a million to go! Now, I’ll tell you all about this spooky yet fascinating story.
Well, Sammy returns from her previous mystery to solve another one. While Sammy’s trick or treating with her friends Marissa and Dot, they find a man tied to a chair in a frankenstein costume and his head is twisted halfway! And he might even be dead! When the dude waked up, Sammy and her two friends ask what happened. The man says that this guy in a skeleton costume barged into his house, stole a few things, and threw him against a wall! How scared and hurt would you feel? So Sammy’s off to solving another mystery, but the Skeleton Man may be closer to her than she thinks…
You’ll love this suspenseful book that you can relate to. Other than the hardcore mystery this book brings to the table, Sammy gets teased and has to find ways to deal with it. Her character is believable, and is someone you’d probably want to be!
