Booklist - 05/01/2022 Senf’s atmospheric tale will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Evie is 12 and came to live in Blight Harbor with her aunt Desdemona after her parents died. Blight Harbor has a lot of supernatural problems as the seventh-most haunted town in America. When Aunt Des disappears, Evie meets a scary presence called the Clackity hiding out in a slaughterhouse. He sends Evie on a quest to save her aunt, during which she must cross over into an eerie realm and search seven houses to find the only family she has left, all while being chased by an evil ghost. The setting of Blight Harbor is already strange and intriguing, with its witches and lost souls, but Senf’s adventure story is hard to put down because of its grounding emotional impact, especially the importance of facing some of life’s darkest truths in order to move on. Fans of David Almond’s Skellig, Holly Black’s Doll Bones (2013), or Katherine Arden’s Small Spaces quartet won’t be disappointed by this. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
