“Folks say Old Auntie takes a girl and keeps her fifty years—then lets her go and takes another one.”   Thirteen-year-old Daniel Anderson doesn’t believe Brody Mason’s crazy stories about the ghost witch who lives up on Brewster’s Hill with Bloody Bones, her man-eating razorback hog. He figures Brody’s probably just trying to scare him since he’s the new kid . . . a “stuck-up snot” from Connecticut.

5.0 Review: Took: A Ghost Story by Mary Downing Hahn
I received a free copy of Took from the publisher in return for an honest review. Took was my first Mary Downing Hahn and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
