"Folks say Old Auntie takes a girl and keeps her fifty years--then lets her go and takes another one." Thirteen-year-old Daniel Anderson doesn't believe Brody Mason's crazy stories about the ghost witch who lives up on Brewster's Hill with Bloody Bones, her man-eating razorback hog. He figures Brody's probably just trying to scare him since he's the new kid . . . a "stuck-up snot" from Connecticut. But Daniel's seven-year-old sister Erica has become more and more withdrawn, talking to her lookalike doll. When she disappears into the woods oneday, he knows something is terribly wrong. Did the witch strike? Has Erica been "took"?

display_description At first Daniel and Erica do not believe the superstitious tales of their mean new classmates. They tell them that their new home, a rundown farm, is haunted by Old Auntie, a witch who kidnaps and keeps a girl for fifty years, then lets her go to get another one. When Erica is taken, Daniel knows he cannot ignore the truth of Old Auntie anymore, and summons his courage to take his sister back.
