McCoy, Mimi The Dead End, 174 p. Poison Apple (Scholastic), MAY 2010. Content: G. $5.99. Casey Slater, 12, has awesome plans for her New York City summer. All of them are dashed when her parents drag her to a creepy old house in the middle of nowhere. No friends, no fun, and no rest – because something seems out to get Casey, torturing her with dreams of fear and fire. Maybe with the help of her new neighbor, Erik, they will be able to put together the puzzle pieces before someone gets hurt. If your students like Betty Ren Wright or Mary Downing Hahn, then they will really enjoy this new imprint from Scholastic. I hope that the Poison Apple books keep rolling on. EL – ADVISABLE.
