by Celia ReesI picked this up because the library branch I went to was supposed to have Witch Child based on a check the night before but it apparently was checked out by the time I got there the next day. Ms. Reese wrote this a lot earlier and it was short so I took it instead kind of as a sample of her writing. I'm glad I did. This seemed to written to a younger age group, more obviously than some I've read, and was a familiar theme but I really liked this short scary story. I liked the way it was developed, I liked the writing/language and I found it interesting how what seemed to be lessons in life and perception and thought (it did not seem didactic to me at all) were being presented through advice given to the main character but with obviously sinister motives. I was curious about how that would be addressed and was satisfied on that count at the end. I liked this. This added to my anticipation of Witch Child, along with Misty's review and Witch Child's popularity among the people I pay attention to.
