Hannah | 3 comments Sorry I can't remember much about this book. I read it probably around 2008-2009? YA fantasy I assume, probably paperback.

The main character (I think) turns out to be a witch of sorts. She somehow ends up with a big white dog/wolf as her familiar (maybe with red eyes), I think it might have chosen her, and I seem to recall that it was important for whatever reason. I think the antagonist wanted the dog for themselves as well (they might have had a crow/raven familiar)?

I think there was also maybe something about travelling between "worlds" in a sense, maybe involving a tree.

There might have been a fire as part of the plot, the girl might have been held captive in a barn or something which then catches fire, and her dog familiar might save her.

The dog's name might also have started with a K...

Sorry if this is quite vague, I can't remember anything about the author or title or names but I just can't seem to get this book out of my head.

Hannah | 3 comments You know what? I think that might actually be it, holy cow, I remember the cover of that book and the bits about spells looking like candy wrappers. Thank you! I really wasn't expecting to find this book again
