Witch Hill Book Review

Witch Hill Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

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

For example, if a married couple gets a divorce, custody of the children, and a substantial amount of the man's assets generally always go to the woman. In this way and others, women are favored by the law over men. What rights do you feel your gender lacks, exactly?
