This middle grade novel is set in Howler’s Hollow. The two young narrators of the book are Delpha McGill and Katybird Hearn, both of whom consider themselves witches and who come from rival mountain families with a history of feuding. Will the hex that went haywire bring the two together? Watch out for zombie grannies and an enchanted outhouse. The author lived in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, but now resides in Bremerton, Washington. This is her first book.
