I did not really like it. It was very unclear and blurry. It is about a boy named Pete who goes to live with his grandmother for the summer because his parents are splitting up. He thinks it will be VERY boring but when his grandmother tells him the story of that gold it buried in a local inactive mine. Pete ventures to go find to help is grandmothers financial issues. But then seems to get trapped by a Skelton and ghost and finds himself injured. Will he ever get back to his beloved grandmother ...more

This was really good. I had to read for a competition, but I ended up loving it. The only fault in the book is that the first couple of pages are really boring and the ending is very rushed. The beginning is basically a description of the setting. It is very detailed, but it gets quite boring after the first page. As for the ending, it didn't feel natural, it was very rushed compared to the rest of the book.
