What or who are the 'creepers'?
Courtney, 13, has just moved to Murmur, Massachusetts with her parents where the family is living in an old stone house next to an old town cemetery. As an only child she wishes for a friend. Her father tries to clean up the overgrown yard, but has difficulty keeping the ivy from overtaking the yard. Courtney also notices there is a lot of ivy. Christian Geyer and his daughter Prudence had lived in the house a couple of centuries ago. Now another Christian Geyer with his daughter Margaret are living in a house down the road from the stone house and are giving tours of the cemetery. They share a secret with Courtney about Prudence and her grave. As the three friends are working on finding Prudence, Courtney's parents become involved in putting the puzzle together. Each chapter is started with a news clipping, or other piece of information that helps solve the puzzle�even a witch is involved. This is a great read for junior high readers. You will have fun trying to guess what is up. There are rich illustrations throughout the book with ivy running through the pages.
