Shaya Solen’s walk home from school takes her past an eerie pond, where one day she finds an old bracelet made of raven feathers. Soon, strange events begin to unfold: a shadowy figure glimpsed across the water, ominous nightmares haunting Shaya, and rumors of a witch who once drowned in the pond.

With the discovery of a strange family connection to the witch, Shaya is drawn into a mystery that must be solved before the approaching Halloween, which is the thirteenth anniversary of the witch’s death – and Shaya’s birthday.

Amusing quote:
Microfiche. What the heck was that? It sounded like something a spy would use.
- location 822, chapter 9


My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): bracelet
Great ghost-witchy quick read for the Halloween season!

A bit of mystery and local history create a spooky ambiance for this story.
