Something’s rotten in Apple country!

Hildy Biddle is a high school reporter eager to stand up for the truth. She’s just waiting for a chance to prove herself as a journalist, and yearning for a big story. The trouble is, the town’s biggest story stars . . . a ghost. Not a very easy interview!

This ghost has the town in a tizzy, and the local paper is playing up people’s fears with shocking headlines of eerie happenings and ghostly sightings. Hildy’s determined to discover what’s really going on, but her desire to uncover the truth is making some people awfully nervous.

Does the truth have a chance of being heard over all the buzz?

Newbery Honor winner Joan Bauer brings her trademark sense of humor, witty dialogue and cast of quirky characters–featuring a strong, feisty heroine–to this funny, thought-provoking mystery.

    " Hildy is a journalist, working for the high school newspaper. Her family owns an apple orchard and she splits her time between school and the family business. Her small town is experiencing some scary times that are centered on the town's alleged haunted house, and fear is building in the town. At the same time, the mayor has announced a new economic initiative that threatens the orchards of some of the town's growers. Hildy uses her journalism skills to get to the bottom of things, and she and her friends "break the story." Joan Bauer creates believable teenagers, engaging stories, and I think this story will appeal to many middle school girls. "

    " OK, I like this book A LOT. At first I thought it would kinda... how do I put this nicely? Be horrible. Maybe it was because of all the apples (I hate apples...), but the intense puking in the first scene really caught my attention. Turns out the book was way more than epic throwing up. It was so awesome that I could literally stand (and was glad) that I Peeled the book off the library shelf ;). "
