Winner of the OLA Silver Birch Award, and selected, Canadian Toy Testing Council's "Great Books for Children." Cat Peters just transferred to Darkmont High and is already desperate to get out. There's no way her mom can afford the tuition at Grimoire, the posh, private school nearby, so when Cat hears that Grimoire is offering a full scholarship to the winners of a soccer match, she jumps at the chance! Once she makes the team, everything starts going Cat's way. It's as if the whole town is under a spell - all anyone cares about is the soccer game. Elated by her new celebrity status, Cat doesn't pay much attention when her little sister, Sookie, and their bookworm neighbor, Jasper, try to tell her there's something...just not right about the old school on the hill. But when terrible things start happening, Cat is forced to take Sookie and Jasper seriously and figure out what is going on. While investigating, Cat stumbles across a book of ancient Celtic myth and fairy lore and quickly realizes that something truly wicked is at work inside the walls of Grimoire.
