A RAY OF PITCH BLACK by Katherine Hayton
This fun middle grade tale about three 13 year-olds who find a book of magic spells and manage to conjure up several ghosts is a quick read. The three girls are typical teens who show a lot of resourcefulness, empathy and genuine friendship.
The tale is implausible but well written. The plot is interesting and has several quirks that will keep you guessing. Parents (who aren’t put off by magic) can rest easy with this tale of murder, friendship and empathy.
