Read in September, 2010

Eerily atmospheric and delightlfully spooky - but, because there are no outright monsters (other than the human kind) yet, it won't give younger kids nightmares.

Though cursed with long blonde hair (rather than the raven tresses she was clearly meant to have), Joy doesn't fit in with the other kids from the suburb of Darlington (the "darlings"). A horror-obsessed young resident of the town of Spooking, Joy becomes convinced that her favorite author E.A. Peugeot is actually from Spooking - and that the bog monster from his stories may actually be real.

A fun read even for adults like me, who spent their childhoods wanting to be the witch rather than the princess.
