really liked it
Read in October, 2009

My neighbor loaned me her copy from the 70's. I'm guilty of judging a book by it's cover b/c I couldn't really get excited about it. But then I started seeing the new copies in B&N and thought - hey - I have that at home! So I read it and I liked it. By the third chapter I was all the way in and when she introduces the "witch" you can feel the tension start to grow. It may not be quite as slick as a modern YA - but I enjoyed it.
