Swiftly introducing a wealth of dark characters, author S. D. Hintz draws middle-grade readers quickly into a macabre world where a bike ride might be the road to safety or oblivion. But “Runnin’ from our problems ain’t gonna fix ‘em” says 13-year-old Murray’s only friend in this aged place. But his grandmother’s not running; she seems almost blind to the dangers, ready always to see the best in his neighbors why Murray learns to fear them. Still, Grandma has secrets of her own… Punished for doing right, unable to explain his reasons, Murray soon feels he might have nowhere to turn. But what will happen if the witches catch him? And might witches be real? Supernatural, scary, gruesome in places, but nicely balancing scares with comfort, disturbing evil with eccentricity, The Witching Well is not a book for the squeamish, but a fun tale for mature middle-graders and up. Disclosure: I was given an ecopy and I offer my honest review.

S. D. Hintz's tale, The Witching Well, is being marketed as a Young Adult title, but its great fun for all ages. It tells the saga of poor 13-year-old Murray Macabe whose life is unexpectedly and tragically disrupted by the sudden loss of a loved one. Shuttled off to his eccentric grandmother's neighborhood, Murray soon finds himself up to his neck in evil, ol' biddy witches and murder. Well-written with a truly relatable protagonist, the book rides suspense and mystery through to the gripping conclusion. A few well-placed scares (just what exactly IS in the attic?) is icing on the cake. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended for all of the readers in your household.
