Took (YA)


Book #100 Read in 2015
Took by Mary Downing Hahn (YA)

Downing Hahn is an author great, spooky books for middle and high schoolers.  Took is no exception.  Daniel and Erica are upset when their parents, due to money issues, move them from CT to West Virginia.  The children are not welcomed by their new school mates.  They both become withdrawn and Erica becomes even odder about her doll, Little Erica, seemingly believing it's alive.  Urban legends abound in their new hometown, about a witch called Auntie who steals little girls to make them her servant and Bag of Bones, her evil "pet".  Erica was "took" by Auntie and Daniel needs to find a way to get her back home.  This book is spooky, creepy and a highly engaging quick read.  I received a copy of this book from Amazon Vine in exchange for a honest review.
