PEELING BACK THE LAYERS = INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM
Hildy Biddle and the other reporters on her high school newspaper are young but not stupid. Knowing something rotten is going on with the town newspaper and the Ludlow property, the teen reporters are determined to get to the core of the "mysterious haunting" at the old abandoned house and reveal the truth before fear overtakes the whole town. A uplifting story of growth, determination and and justice in the face of daunting odds.
Peeled by Joan Bauer is an engaging story for 6th - high schoolers looking for something different yet inspiring to read.
