Anne Santoro is finishing up her junior year in high school, in her new home town in Upstate New York. She is reminded of a tale she was told as a child of the witch’s house. The house was on the road she and her family took to get to the beach.
She and her best friend Colleen McFadden decide to visit Smithtown, NY, where Anne grew up, to see if the witch’s house is still there. Anne has kept parts of her life on Long Island to herself and faces painful moments when she returns. How will her best friend react?
As a child, Anne anticipated seeing this house with every trip to the beach. Is it still there? The quest becomes more than just finding the house. It becomes a search to find a young Native American Indian girl who disappeared over 100 years ago. Finding clues to solve this century’s old mystery is tough enough, but when deciphering a ghost’s way of communicating, tough takes on a whole new meaning.
What will Anne and Colleen discover? Follow them on their hunt to find the Witch’s House and see if they uncover the answers they’re looking for.
The Road to Long Beach and the Witch’s House is a story of mystery and suspense. The adventure brings to light the weight of being bullied and how passing judgment on others can last through centuries of time.
In An Oyster Shell – A simple paranormal mystery that was interesting.
The Pearls – I like the premise of the book. A couple of girls on a trip looking for the mystery of the witch’s house. It has a Nancy Drew paranormal feel to it. The time setting is uncertain but it has a historical feel to it.
I like the paranormal aspect and the mystery that was solved of the witch. The ending was most satisfying.
I appreciated the real relationship between Anne and her friend. She was quite moody at times and they got into it. It was refreshing.
The Sand – Some things like time setting was hard to understand.
