Book Review #77
Peeled by Joan Bauer
Rating: three stars (out of four)

Hildy Biddie wants to be a journalist, not just any journalist, but a Good journalist.  She strives hard to get all the facts straight and get every angle of the story before she publishes it.  She writes for her high school newspaper and is waiting for the perfect moment for her work to shine when interest about the old haunted Ludlow House starts creeping up.  Pretty soon Hildy is caught up in a story that she must crack.

I enjoyed reading this book, Joan Bauer is one of my favorite authors. Her writing is very comical and at the same time has elements of surprise and sweetness thrown in. While this was not my favorite book of hers to date I still thought that it was definitely worth reading. I absolutely love the cover of this book, it beautifully portrays the two main elements of the story. I also thought that this book had some helpful tips on journalism.
