-a fan since the beginning
First you read the book.... Ryan's journal of events that are taking place AND THEN you watch a video from Sarah online. These are 3-8 minute videos made by "Sarah" a teenage girl. They are not state of the art videos but they are enough to get a rise out of the kids. It is not too scary just every once in awhile something unexpected jumps out at you. My students could not get enough of this book. They would listen for hours and beg to watch the videos over and over again. They would beg for me to stop reading so we read... A LOT!
This book was so good that soon the 6th grade class next door was wondering what we were up to and wanted in on the action. So... they started reading. Then the third class joined us and then friends at another school. I am telling you... this book is a life saver! We ended up reading the first 4 books of the series in the last 4 days of the school year!!! It was the most we read all year long. The kids went home after school and rewatched the videos with their parents. They were desperate to be the first one to solve the mystery.
This would be the perfect "Halloween" story as well. I saw somewhere that this was good for grades 4-6. I would agree. I think 7th graders may even enjoy it.
