Summary: Fear is raging through the little apple-growing community of Banesville. Ghost sightings, mysterious warning signs, and a death at the Old Ludlow place have the town in a scared frenzy. Hildy, reporter for the high school newspaper, is determined to report the truth about what is really going on. As the spunky teen and her fellow reporters investigate, they make many surprising discoveries, some that are rotten to the core.
Thoughts: I really liked Hildy, her love for journalism, and her commitment to the truth. This is an entertaining, delicious read that would best be enjoyed with a piece of warm apple cake!
