Review: The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab

Review: The Near Witch
by: Victoria Schwab
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.

Review: 5x5
The wind whispers in the town of Near....out on the moor and there are witches about... I really enjoyed this book! I was absolutely swept away into the the town of Near. Amazing scenery and very interesting people abound in this part fairy tale...part love story. I always enjoy a great story especially ones that tell of long ago :) *sigh* 

This will take you back in time and cast a spell on you! GET IT NOW!!
