Bayou Dogs by Tony Abbott - ADVISABLE

Abbott, Tony Bayou Dogs (The Haunting of Derek Stone #2), 144 p. Scholastic, March 2009.

Violence: PG


Derek is being pursued by the dead - a legion of evil souls who want to return to the living world and take control. Years ago Derek almost died in a desolate swamp. Now he is being pursued straight back to the swamp for a violent confrontation with the spirits.

Derek gets not a single minute to breathe in this fast-paced action-packed ghost story. While I don't think it is as strong as the first in the series, I think it hits the right note for its audience.
