Ryan and Sarah live in the small town of Skeleton Creek. They're been best friends since they first met and have been getting in trouble ever since. Now in high school, they've teamed up for a school project to look at the history of the town. However, it seems that looking into the town's past is not something the adults want done and after a late night excursion to the Dredge, Ryan is severely injured, and he and Sarah are forbidden to speak or contact each other. Only Ryan and Sarah are not ready to give up. From official release/information:
Product Description: Strange things are happening in Skeleton Creek . . . and Ryan and Sarah are trying to get to the heart of it. But after an eerie accident leaves Ryan housebound and forbidden to see Sarah, their investigation takes two tracks: Ryan records everything in his journal, while Sarah uses her videocam to search things out. . .and then email the clips for Ryan to see.
In a new, groundbreaking format, the story is broken into two parts -- Ryan's text in the book, and Sarah's videos on a special website, with links and passwords given throughout the book.
