High-school newspaper reporter Hildy Biddle isn''t content to just cover school issues. She''s drawn to the town''s big story--the haunted old Ludlow house. Hildy''s efforts to find out who is really haunting the place isn''t making her popular.
From the Publisher:
Thinking that the editor of the local paper is behind the hysteria surrounding ghostly sightings and strange happenings at the Ludlow house, high school newspaper reporter Hildy Biddle decides to investigate the strange events herself and ends up making enemies while uncovering facts that some feel should remain secret. Reprint.
Annotation:
In the apple-infested upstate New York town of Banesville there is trouble brewing, and intrepid teen reporter Hildy Biddle plans to get to the truth, no matter what. An editor at her school paper, The Core, Hildy begins to suspect that all the hoopla about a supposedly haunted house in town has more to do with valuable property than actual ghosts. However, the more she pokes around, the more trouble she seems to get into. Along with a little romance, humor, and coming-of-age tropes, there's much to enjoy here for Joan Bauer fans.
Author Bio
Joan Bauer
Many of Joan Bauer's young adult novels feature feisty female protagonists--a situation likely influenced by the fact that Bauer is one of four sisters who were raised primarily by their mother and maternal grandmother. Bauer has said that her father, a salesman who was married four times, was a complicated person--a characterization mirrored by many of the fathers in her books. Before becoming a full-time author, Bauer worked in advertising--a career which blossomed into writing for magazines and newspapers and eventually movie screenplays. Her first novel, SQUASHED, was written as she slowly recovered from a serious car accident. That book, which was published in 1992, won the Delacorte Press Prize for a First Novel.

Praise

"With sharp pacing and an intriguing premise, Bauer renders a fully realized portrait of a small town dependent on an ever-fragile agricultural economy and threatened by modern encroachment." 4/28/2008

"In Hildy, Bauer introduces a feisty, funny teenage heroine who stays true to her mission and herself while learning the realities of reporting and the importance of sticking to the facts. Highly Entertaining." 4/1/2008
