Peeled by Joan Bauer
Something’s rotten in the heart of apple country!
Hildy Biddle is a high school reporter eager to stand up for the truth. The trouble is, the town’s biggest story stars…a ghost. Not a very easy interview! This ghost has everyone in a tizzy and the local paper is playing up people’s fears with shocking headlines. Hildy’s determines to stick to the facts and find out who is really threatening her town--but does the truth have a chance of being heard over all the buzz?
Joan Bauer has created a strong main character in Hildy Biddle. I really enjoyed her strength and determination throughout the novel. This was a great mystery novel as well as a great lesson in investigative journalism. I really enjoyed the storyline of this book. I’ve never read anything by Joan Bauer but I liked this book and I look forward to reading more by her.
