One of School Library Journal’s Best Fiction Books of 2011Some secrets are better left buried; some secrets are so frightening they might make angels weep and the devil crow. Thought provoking as well as intensely scary, White Crow unfolds in three voices. There's Rebecca, who has come to a small, seaside village to spend the summer, and there's Ferelith, who offers to show Rebecca the secrets of the town...but at a price.

This book was weird. There are three different POVs which didn't go together at all. Rebecca was a whinny baby, always complaining and everything was "me me me". I was like Shut up already. Ferelith was a wacko. She was really weird. I was hovering between liking her and not. The priest was just as ...
