Eleven-year-old Hannah can't believe she has to move from Tarrytown to spooky Sleepy Hollow to stay with her dad, stepmom, and her spoiled and nasty stepsister, Molly. So Hannah is thrilled when a sweet black stray cat begins showing up on her dad's doorstep to keep her company. Hannah's heard of the legend of the black ghost cat that haunts the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, but she always figured it was just a legend. . . right? Or could the ghost cat of Sleepy Hollow be haunting Hannah?
Sierra Harimann lives in Brooklyn with her husband and their cat, who is alive and well and not haunting anyone. This is her first Poison Apple book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Curiosity killed the cat I loved this book and it is quite spooky and bone chilling, (in a good way). I thought this book would be scary and creepy, but when i read it, i was right it was creepy (but like i said, in a good way) and also quite exciting too. I hope you like it (if you are brave enough to get it!!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good book great series. This is book seven in this great series. It was the last I read as each story stands strong on its own. And this is one of the best of the lot. Sierra Harimann has written a wonderful, dark, ghost story. But it will be great fun for younger readers. Hannah is not enjoying life right now. She is moving in with her dad, step-mom and step-sister. And their house backs onto the famous graveyard from the poem The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. The day before she moves in, her best friend tells her the town legend about a ghost cat. And the day of the move, Hannah's own cat goes missing. And soon she is being woken up by the cat at night. She catches glimpses of it and follows it to the graveyard but cannot find it. As she doubts herself, she doesn't tell her best friend, and soon realizes her step-sister knows more than she is letting on. But can she get her to work together, can they solve the mystery or are they headed to be the next victims of the ghost cat? Read this awesome story to find out! This series has been out for a few years now. It is a dark off-shoot of their popular Candy Apple Books. This series, Poison Apple Books, is amazing. The books explore such things as ghosts, vampires, haunting and other darker tales. Unlike most fluffy books for young girls, these tales have a little more grit but still have some humour and are really fun reads. Unfortunately this series has either been canceled or put on hiatus. There appears to be a new spin-off called Rotten Apples that started this year and it looks really interesting. But even it is not getting much push or press from Scholastic.
