Blog 14 - Book Birthday!

 Today is the big day! That's right! Today is Victoria Schwab's The Near Witch Book birthday. Her book comes out today. I hope everyone got their copies. I would like to wish Victoria Schwab a very Merry Book Birthday! I look forward to reading it.

Here's a little about the book:
The Near Witch is only an old story told to frighten children.

If the wind calls at night, you must not listen. The wind is lonely, and always looking for company.

And there are no strangers in the town of Near.
These are the truths that Lexi has heard all her life.
But when an actual stranger—a boy who seems to fade like smoke—appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one of these sayings is no longer true.
The next night, the children of Near start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under suspicion. Still, he insists on helping Lexi search for them. Something tells her she can trust him.
As the hunt for the children intensifies, so does Lexi’s need to know—about the witch that just might be more than a bedtime story, about the wind that seems to speak through the walls at night, and about the history of this nameless boy.

Part fairy tale, part love story, Victoria Schwab’s debut novel is entirely original yet achingly familiar: a song you heard long ago, a whisper carried by the wind, and a dream you won’t soon forget.

So a Very Merry Book Birthday to Victoria Schwab and The Near Witch!!!

I hope Victoria as a great first day as being a published author. I look forward to reading her book, and any others in the future.
