Jamie Fraser is spending Easter at his aunt's. He soon realizes that this quiet hamlet is anything but. Terrified by nightmares, Jamie determines to solve a century-old witch mystery.

Author: Marcus Sedgwick

Most of the spooky stories about terrified teens that I've perused have not given me goosebumps. (At least not like the daily news does!) So when I picked up Witch Hill, my spine wasn't prepared for the tingling it was about to get.


Out of the fire and into the frying pan, Jamie Fraser is spending the Easter holidays with his aunt, in England's West Country, after his family home burns down. But it soon becomes clear to Jamie that his stay in the peaceful village of Crownhill will be anything but. Terrified by Halloween dreams, Jamie gets all sleuthy and tries to solve a century-old witch mystery. As it unravels, Jamie is forced to confront his worst [kwlink 2052]fears to escape the whole history-repeating-itself thing.


Witch Hill compelled me to read on (mostly cuz it's well written!) until (and this is my only complaint,) the last twenty or so pages. It was then, that the fire Mr. Sedgwick had fanned to a spooky flame, sputtered, cackled and died.


Witch Hill RATING:3

    I apologize if I may have sounded like I was calling myself a genius in my recent post. What AlphaT,  I believe, was trying to make (count me in as well), at that moment, was how those who view 'intellectual kids' intelligent, are often the ones that misjudge them the most. And yes, we do not know everything. It's all just based on what type of person you would classify intelligent. The way I perceive them, is not by 'being individual, independent and definitely not a socializer' but having the eloquence, breath of knowledge, and a respectful attitude.  Nope, using fancy words does not make you intelligent. In a recent study, it actually makes you sound stupider, which is actually quite surprising! The truth of the general topic (fancy words) is that you are meant to use words that both you and your readers understand. We don't share the same vocab, but often we use words that are graded by many 'fancy words'. Let me tell you that there are no 'fancy words' in existence, but there are words that you plainly do not understand, leading you to classify it thereby as a fancy word, or if that's not the case, there are those that you'd probably think nobody would use, words that you don't use often, or big words such as 'quintessential'. I agree that certain big, 'fancy' words may be a bad idea to use when a smaller word would do, but sometimes, those 'fancy' words would be able to illustrate the point so much better.
