Then, the Markhams moved to town, spreading a strange malaise wherever they go.
The teen soon becomes the target of Jamilla Markham's attention. Can Cassy Mae escape the danger hiding beneath Jamilla's seeming friendship?

I think what I actually got was so great that it overshadowed all other expectations."Noticing Jamilla" was flawlessly written. The characters were very well developed and fleshed out for such a short story. Cassy Mae goes to live with her GrannyJo after her mom dies. She doesn't believe in the "bad juju" her granny vehemently warns her about and actually thinks she is completely off her rocker. Then, she notices Jamilla...
