Review “If you’ve got a kid (ages 8 to maybe 15 or so) who resists reading, then I’ve got a challenge for you to issue. Hand them Skeleton Creek by Patrick Carman and dare them to not finish it…And for kids who loves to read? My guess is they’ll finish each book in a day or two… they’re that good…” – Wired”…story of Ryan McCray and Sarah Fincher’s investigation into the supernatural conspiracy surrounding their hometown is one part “X-Files,” one part “Blair Witch Project.” – The New York Times”A student kept on gushing about these books and he said that he’d read the series more than once and was shocked that I’d never even heard of the series before. He asked if I wanted to borrow it and he brought the whole series in for me to read. He said I would love them and he told me to be sure to watch the videos. I started reading it and could not put it down and I made sure to watch all of the videos.” – Stephanie on Goodreads About the Author Patrick Carman is a bestselling children’s author with over four million books in print including perennial favorites Skeleton Creek, Atherton, 39 Clues, Floors, Fizzopolis, and The Land of Elyon.

Patrick Carman on his mission: Since 2003, I’ve been writing books for young readers and spending a lot of time on the road, meeting them where they’re at. More than 2500 school visits later, I can report from the field that kids still love books, even as a tidal wave of distraction try to keep them from turning pages. Books still shape young minds, and they still provide unparalleled advantages every kid needs. My mission after nearly two decades and thousands of school visits hasn’t changed: get every kid excited about reading, because reading helps every kid thrive. When I visit schools I always ask lots of kids the same question: what’s keeping you from reading? Let me count the ways! Netflix, YouTube, Fortnite, Minecraft, Snapchat, Roblox, and Instagram top the list. None of these things are bad in and of themselves, but taken together, they build a wall around books that can be difficult for a kid to climb. That’s why Skeleton Creek goes looking for kids where they are. Through the use of video content and words, Skeleton Creek draws kids in and hooks them on reading. Sometimes we just have to be willing to meet them halfway.
