Critically acclaimed author of the thrilling ALA Notable Children's Book and School Library Journal Best Book Skeleton Man, Joseph Bruchac draws from his knowledge of Native American myths to craft his suspenseful tales. When Armie arrives at the North Mountains School, he is immediately drawn to an eerie, dark pond in the woods nearby. It seems to be calling to him. In the past, Armie has turned to the legends of his Shawnee ancestors for guidance in matters of the supernatural. This time he'll need all the help he can get!

Professional reviews

"Armin Katchatorian--part Shawnee, part Armenian--attends a private boarding school because he has trouble controlling his anger. An outsider who communicates better with animals that with people, Armie is drawn by something evil in the pond near his school. He is warned to stay away by a young Native American investigating the mysterious goings on at the pond. Bruchac has crafted a completely creepy short tale with great appeal to horror fans looking for a quick fix. Ramon de Ocampo's narration is spot-on; he captures the anger and fear of Armie's character, and his pacing contributes nicely to the hair-raising aspect of the story. S.G.
