Creepers by Joanne Dahme (Philadelphia: RP Teens, 2008).
When 13-year-old Courtney moves to Murmur, Massachusetts, she first notices the abundant ivy on her new home--and then that it happens to be next door to a cemetery. She quickly becomes involved in helping her new neighbors, eccentric father Christian and teen daughter Margaret, preserve the cemetery from developers and solve the mystery of the rampant ivy, which they say involves a girl who died hundreds of years ago at age 13. A witch, attack ivy, ghostly carving, and voices from the past all make Creepers a spell binding read, suitable for grades 5 and up.
I read a lot, especially kid and young adult lit. This blog will review what I've been reading. I get most of my reading material from the library, plus I buy books at school book fairs and the usual stores. I look for freebies on Amazon for my Kindle, and I'm happy to review any ARCs or e-galleys I can get my hands on.
