"Folks say Old Auntie takes a girl and keeps her fifty years-then lets her go and takes another one." Thirteen-year-old Daniel Anderson doesn't believe Brody Mason's crazy stories about the ghost witch who lives up on Brewster's Hill with Bloody Bones, her man-eating razorback hog. He figures Brody's probably just trying to scare him since he's the new kid . . . a "stuck-up snot" from Connecticut. But Daniel's seven-year-old sister Erica has become more and more withdrawn, talking to her lookalike doll. When she disappears into the woods one day, he knows something is terribly wrong. Did the witch strike? Has Erica been "took"?

This book was very scary. I felt like I was right in the middle of the story. I could feel everything happening.

Not my fav MDH book. I thought it was a little repetitive. I didn't think it was as chilling and scary as other reviews would lead me to believe.

This was an ok ghost story for young readers. It had a little of everything. Heroism, creepiness, drama, etc. Easy read. Not terrifying at all.

I absolutely loved this book! The perfect book for ghost lovers. The characters and the plot stood out and the setting and word choice made the book really intriguing. Once I started reading it, I could not stop until the end. Best to read during the night.

This is an incredible book! The scary plot and interesting characters made the tale very real. I always enjoy a good ghost story and this one was perfect for a cold, winter day.

This is a really creepy and really fun story! If I ever have to move out to a house in the middle of nowhere, I'm definitely going to look into any old ghost stories or legends surrounding the house! Never a good idea to ignore that kind of stuff, and the characters in this book find that out the hard way.

An intense, gripping read for everybody who likes a good scare. Hahn is the Stephen King of children's books.
