Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
Silla and her brother Reese struggle to come to terms with the horrific deaths of their parents. When a leather-bound spell book written in her father’s familiar writing arrives in the mail with her name on the package, Drusilla is forced to reexamine everything she knows about her dad, a former high school Latin teacher. When Nick, the newly-arrived neighbor and classmate, strives to help Silla, she must decide if she can trust him. This powerful book combines romance, mystery, and the constant struggle between good and evil. Was her father a healer who used magic to help and protect, or was he the cold-blooded murderer everyone seemed to think he was?
