How to Catch a Witch

Moving house is weird. So spare a thought for Charlie. She’s moved to a creepy village where witches, curses and magic are totally real. Double weird! You know when you have a dream where everything feels just a little bit wrong? That’s how Charlie feels there. She lives in a spooky old cottage. She has to start at a tiny new school (no chance of hiding in the crowd). And the villagers are just plain freaky! There’s Suzy Evans, a beautiful young singer who glows with a strange light only Charlie can see. Nosy classmate Cat, who keeps prying into Charlie’s business. Finally, grumpy Agatha – who may not have a broomstick or a cauldron, but is definitely a witch. The only problem: what if Charlie is one too?
