“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 But Daniel’s seven-year-old sister Erica has become more and more withdrawn, talking to her lookalike doll.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”?

        I read this book in 6th grade and it took me three days to read. It was interesting. I don't want to spoil anything so, I'm going to try not to say anything to spoil it. The book includes an interesting plot about a boy name Daniel and his sister Erika. Every 50 years Old Auntie takes a girl to be her servent until the next 50 years comes and then she releases her, but takes another girl. One day Daniel finds a girl who's been missing for 50 years but, she was in a child's form. Shortly after that, Erika goes missing. Should Daniel believe the stories about Old Auntie and her pet? What should Daniel do to get his sister back? Read Took to find out what happens! :D

          I would recommend this book to anyone. The cover looks creepy but it is not that bad. The author creates a lot of cliff-hangers. The author makes you think. This book is outstanding. I would rate this book a five out of five. This author put a lot of time in her books. This repels so many emotions. It makes you scared, happy and sad all at the same time. You have to read it.
