Casey Slater can't believe her bad luck. It's the summer before seventh grade and, while her friends will be hanging out at the local pool, Casey is in a remote country town where her parents are restoring an old, creaky, creepy house.

Worst of all, everyone else in town thinks the old house is haunted. And soon Casey thinks so too - objects fly across the room on their own, the hallway floorboards creak when everyone is in bed, mysterious writing shows up in the dust on the mirror - and it seems like the ghost doesn't want them there. Casey thought she'd be dying of boredom, but now she's scared to death!

Mimi McCoy is the author of the Candy Apple books The Accidental Cheerleader, The Babysitting Wars, and Star-Crossed. She lives in San Francisco, California, in a house with no ghosts...as far as she knows...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My All time FAVOURITE book! I'm excited to write about this. You know it's a good book when you actually get scared. I definately don't recommend this for ages 9 and under. It's about a girl who moves into a summer home for the WHOLE summer. When she arrives she see's creepy things happen. Then a diary that could explain who's doing them. She try's to tell her parents that there's a ghost wanting them to leave. IMEDIATELY! But her parents don't believe her because the ghost just seems to haunt her! This was my favourite book I would read it a thousand times more! It's a creepy book with a dark secret! And a ghost who may not be evil at all. Somehow helpful. But you'll have to read it tofind out why. I would recommend this for ANYONE, 10 and over. Even adults. You definately CAN'T miss this poison apple!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark Fun Scholastic goes Goth, or at least dark and scary. This new series by Scholastic Press has some great potential - it looks like a dark off-shoot of their popular Candy Apple Books. This new series from Poison Apple Books starts with 2 out this spring, one in August and another in the fall and it looks amazing. I have read advance copies of the first two and they were great. Casey Slater had her summer all planned out. She and her best friend knew what they would be doing all summer long and they would be doing it together. Then a few weeks before the end of school her parents tell her they have a surprise. Her parents bought a house in the middle of nowhere in New Hampshire, just outside Stillness. Her parents plan to restore this old creaky and creepy house. Everyone in town believes the house is haunted and soon so does Casey. She finds the diary from a girl who lived there 70 years earlier, Millicent Amelia Hughes, and while reading the journal, finds out Millicent's story and her own apprehension of being haunted are eerily similar. China cabinets fall over, vases explode, and all the electrical devices go on before the house has power. These and other events lead Casey to believe the house is haunted, and that maybe Millicent is out to get her. But things are not always as they appear. To quote the back of the book: "Casey thought she'd be dying of boredom, but now she's scared to death!"
