Reading this...it is everything a book like this should be...Kara and her brother Taff...sweet "almost" orphans living in a village that despises and hates them. Their mother was tried as a witch and their father is a shell of himself. Taff is sick...Kara is bullied at school by a horribly clever classmate. Everyone in the village is waiting for the witch side of Kara to make itself known. Plus the Thickety...the scary forest part of the village is getting closer and closer to everyone. This book is so good. I am invested in Kara...she is what is holding her family together.
Possibly up next? I am in a fantasy kind of mood!
