Product Description


Fourteen-year-old Sam McLean is less than thrilled with the prospect of moving to a collection of old mansions on the northern fringe of a small town called Ringwood. A nobody at his old school, Sam is desperate to be accepted by the cool kids and latches on to Cody Barns, aka Maniac. Cody’s claim to fame is performing wild stunts ― the crazier the better ― and posting them on his blog.

When Sam reluctantly joins Cody and his sidekick, Javon, on their midnight ghost riding, a practice in which the driver and passenger climb onto the hood of their moving car and dance, something goes terribly wrong. Cody convinces Sam to flee the scene, leaving Javon for dead. But soon mysterious messages appear on Cody’s blog and anonymous notes are slid into Sam’s locker. As Sam struggles with his conscience, a haunting question remains: Who else knows the truth?

"... Cohen has created a genuinely creepy story that will hold readers' attention."

(CM Magazine)

"Ghost Ride is a gripping mixture of realism and the paranormal."

(Resource Links)

"Good for thrill-seeking teens 12 and up."

(Winnipeg Free Press)

"This spooky new story by Marina Cohen loosely tied in with The Legend of Sleepy Hollow will grab readers from the beginning, and keep them hooked until the surprise twist ending."

(Canadian Children's Book News)

"Ghost Ride was a book I literally couldnt put down!"

(What If? Magazine)

"when combined with the associations of Washington Irvings The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, one cant help but get into the atmosphere of this novel."

(YA Bookshelf)

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Marina Cohen's third novel is a slick departure from her junior fantasy reads Shadow of the Moon, and Trick of the Light. Written for the young adult market, Ghost Ride is a modern thriller that promises to keep the reader guessing right up until the final chapter. Cohen weaves a clever story of intrigue, layered with realistic teen angst, the complexities of the father-son relationship, and the danger of teenage peer choices. The question to ask yourself is this: when you have a deep, dark secret in your past, can you ever be perfect enough for fate to forgive your lapse?

HASH(0x9e8acca8) out of 5 stars Left me wanting more after every page Feb. 27 2010
By Flamingnet Teen Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When fourteen-year-old Sam McLean moves to a little
neighborhood full of old mansions on the outskirts of a
small town called Ringwood, strange things start to happen.

Just as Sam starts to hang out with Cody Barns
(otherwise known as Maniac) and his lunatic of a sidekick
Javon, they convince Sam to join them on one of their
crazy stunts that they planned to video tape and put on
Cody's blog. The stunt goes wrong and Cody and Sam flee
the scene leaving Javon alone, dead. As mysterious notes
are left in Sam's locker and messages are sent to Cody's
blog from an unknown person, Sam struggles to stay sane.
One question stays in Sam's head: Who else knows what
really happened that night?

This story left me wanting
more after every page. Ghost Ride had a good spooky twist
to it. Any fiction lover, mystery fanatic, or someone
just wanting a good book to read will love this action,
adventure novel. I'm not a person who usually likes this
kind of spooky book, but for a ghost story, it was pretty
good. It has definitely gotten me more interested in
ghost novels. What's really creepy, is this almost
reminded me of my house and where I live, sleep, eat, and
