What a great, fun story. Comedic, suprising and a little frightening - what an enjoyable read for a rainy afternoon.

I read the extended preview of this book and i gotta say that this book is awesome and the plot ispretty original and ParaNormal is one of those one of a kind boks with amazing thouggts that take some time to think of and the author is amazing by ading small things like Normans mean and annoyig sister ad weird embarrasing moments. The book is very amazing and couIdnt put the book.....or Nook down! I 100 % recommend this book to all ages because there is no inappropriate language and the plot is interesting and it is not very horrifying as it has to deal with the living dead though there csn be scenes that csn make a young child slightly uncomfortable. Wish I could give this amazing book 6/5! - No Reading Limit

This book I reccomend for ages 8+. It is A good book, and will give you A good scare. This book is about the witch of blithe hollow, who is A little girl who was accused of witchcraft (being A witch) and was hanged. She put A curse on everyone who was connected to her death, for them to rise as the living dead on the 300th anniversary of her death. Norman Babcock has to put the witch to bed, before anything horrlble happens. Wil he do it right? Will anything horrible happen on this day? Is this the end of blithe hollow? Find out when you read this book.
