Reviews

Praise for "SPELLBINDER: ""Wry wit and derring-do add up to a great read."--"Kirkus Reviews""Stringer debuts with an adventurous, darkly humorous ghost story. ...Stringer's ability to build a strong sense of mystery, entwined with Western mythology, will pull readers through to the end. Those who like unusual ghost stories without the usual horror will enjoy this book."--"Publishers Weekly" "Stringer maintains the humor and logic of preteens who are awkwardly coming into their magical destinies, which makes for an amusing first novel."--"School Library Journal""Readers will fear for and cheer for Belladonna Johnson, the hero of this brilliant has-it-all novel, as she tries to solve the mystery behind the disappearance of the world's ghosts. One of the year's best."--"Cookie" magazine "Stringer's charming ghost story defies classification. ...A fast-paced plot and intricate world pull the reader along, but it's Bella's love for her parents and her need to keep them with her that linger"--"Booklist" "This charming debut novel blends classic British fantasy with figures usually reserved for horror stories to create a compelling fantasy adventure romp which will appeal to middle grades readers. ...this book is sure to hook readers and leave them waiting for what must certainly be a sequel, if not a whole series"-- "VOYA"
