Read this for 5th Grand Lit Lunch this week at one of my schools. There were snow days, so we didn't get to the end....but Kelly (fellow librarian) told me what happens and I'm not too impressed. Goosebumps are waaaaay better. :\

This wasn't that bad of a book. The story starts off with family and friends and they had found out about this ship that is haunted. So the kids decide to find this ship. When they found the ship they went inside and looked around and were hearing a lot of weird things though out the ship. I think that this book is best for younger kids to read.

Entertaining and the plot and characters are always moving considering that they are always running and on the move. The spider part was a little overwhelming. A fun Halloween story.
