I’m not going to scream, I told myself although panic shot through my body like a jolt of lightning.
My heart pounded. My throat tightened. I peered intensely in every direction in the dark woods but there was no sign of my tent or my family. I was utterly and profoundly lost in the middle of Algonquin Park.
Somewhere in Algonquin Park, a 3,000 square mile forest in northern Ontario, Canada, wanders fourteen year-old Mary Elizabeth.
Separated from her family during a weekend camping trip, M.E.'s journey takes her to some of the uncharted territory of her own soul that ends with a haunting twist.

Reviews by Mrs. Delahunt’s grade 4 class, St. Catherine’s, Ontario
“I liked the ending of the book because it’s different from all the other books I’ve ever read. You put a lot of effort into the ending. Well, actually, the whole book had a lot of effort into it.”—Sylvio, grade 4
“I really liked your book because I liked how you made stuff so suspicious. Like when the moose was walking in the water.”—Jenny, grade 4
“I thought the ending of the book was incredible! It was very creative.”—Vanessa, grade 4
“I like the ending because…this book has a little more twist at the ending not like all the other books.”—James, grade 4
“I really like this book especially the ending because it tricked me.”—Christine, grade 4
“I liked the ending because everything pulled together and then everything made sense of what happened. It was thrilling.”—Ahmed, grade 4
“I really like that you wrote a book! This book is sorta similar to Hatchet but not really, Great work!”—Victoria, grade 4
“I liked the end of the book because it is a part where there is a lot of thinking involved.”—Susan, grade 4
“I think this book would be really good for my age because I thought that it was a nice flowing story.”—Ruben, grade 4
“I liked the ending and how you gave clues about what happened.”—John, grade 4
“I really liked the ending of this book because it’s a lot different from other books…I’ve never heard of a book like this. This was one of the most creative books I’ve read.”—Brittany, grade 4
“Yes I did love the ending of this story and this is why because I thought it was cool…Hatchet is like The Haunting of M.E. because both are an adventure book and they are two kids that get lost and don’t know what to do and they are books that pull you in and they don’t let you stop reading.”—Becky, grade 4

"I finally purchased The Haunting of M.E on my Kindle. I am halfway and I must say I love it! It is well written, easy to read and I can't wait for my daughter to be a little older for her to read it. The book does a good job of transporting me to the forest where the events are taking place, and I can picture the scenes described in the book like I am right there with the character. It is making for an excellent read."--Coletta Zenker
"...As for family friendliness, definitely rates a 5 out of 5. This is one of those campfire stories you can tell the kids before they have to slip into the darkness to go find their tents. Muahaha…"--Linda Harley. To see the full review (including SPOILER) please visit http://www.rosebuz.com/?p=1413
