Thirteen Witches by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Rosie's mother is missing a lot of memories.  She doesn't even know how to love her child and she doesn't know how she got that way.  The first odd thing is that Rosie can see ghosts...

Aladdin sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It will be published on February 9th.

Rosie likes to write stories.  They all have happy endings because her life isn't happy.  One day she gets disgusted with them and burns them.  That brings some witches out of hiding.

Rosie has a friend in Germ, a girl her age.  She also has a friend in ghost form that is a young man.  The ghost tells her the Memory Witch is coming for her when the moon goes dark.  Witches don't like the light of the moon, it burns them.

The witch has cursed her mother, that's why she is the way she is.  Rosie doesn't want to be taken by the witch.  But the only way the witch can be stopped is by killing her.  How can a 12 year old do that?

There are more secrets hidden and as Rosie learns them she attempts to be ready when the witch comes.

This was a good fantasy tale with lots of challenges for Rosie.  This is also the first book in a series.  The witches are still around...
