Skeleton Man by Joseph Bruchac is a great book!!!i had trouble falling asleep when i raed it. (dont worry i cant fall asleap when i read about anything scary.) this book is about a girl who’s perents go missing and she goes to iive at her uncle’s wicth she never knew she had.her uncle locks the door to her room every night so she cant get out,and he makes her breakfast every morning but she throws it away because the 1 time she ate it, it made her feel like a zombie.on top of all this she keeps on haveing weard dreams. Is her uncle the skeleton man? Will she ever find her perents? Read Skeleton Man to find out.
