The Thickety:A Path Begins
When Kara Westfall was six years old, her mother was convicted of the worst of all crimes: witchcraft. Years later, Kara and her little brother, Taff, are still shunned by the people of their village, who believe that nothing is more evil than magic, except for what lurks in the nearby Thickety - the forest that covers nearly the entire island. But when an unusual bird lures Kara into the forbidden forest, she discovers a strange book with unspeakable powers. A book that might have belonged to her mother. The events she then sets in motion are both awe-inspiring and terrifying and that's just the beginning of the story. Ages 11 to 14.
