PeeledBook - 20080501
Hildy Biddle dreams of being a journalist. A reporter for her high school newspaper, The Core , she?s just waiting for a chance to prove herself. Not content to just cover school issues, Hildy?s drawn to the town?s big story?the haunted old Ludlow house. On the surface, Banesville, USA, seems like such a happy place, but lately, eerie happenings and ghostly sightings are making Hildy take a deeper look.
Her efforts to find out who is really haunting Banesville isn?t making her popular, and she starts wondering if she?s cut out to be a journalist after all. But she refuses to give up, because, hopefully, the truth will set a few ghosts free.
Peeled is classic Joan Bauer, featuring a strong heroine, and filled with her trademark witty dialogue, and problems and people worth standing up to.

No typos, either, but there was some unfortunate wording in a classified ad:
DOG FOR SALE - Eats anything and is particularly fond of children.
"You've got to move across the street, ladies. It's the law, but I'm sure not going to have a problem if you take your sweet time."
Two of the elders inched toward the street.
Pinky Sandusky turned to follow and shouted, "My knee!" I ran up to her. "What's wrong?"
Her eyes were bright. "Why, it's just clicked out on me again, honey. I can't walk. I'm going to have to sit down right here. You help me ... no, not there ... right here on the driveway." And down she went, holding her SHAME ON YOU! sign.
Suddenly, like a bolt from heaven, the Elders Against Evil were all struck in various aging body parts.
