"Xanadu House" starts off with seemingly ordinary kid problems: staying with a relative, bullies at school, and homesickness. The story quickly becomes more complicated as Rachael gains control of her animal form and learns more about the bullies.

If you don’t want your black jellybeans, she does. The three neighbor kids next door think she might be a witch ...more
