Sweetly By: Jackson Pearce

Gretchen and her brother Ansel and looking for peace in their lives. Ever since Gretchen's twin disappeared into the woods, attacked by a witch, they have been lost.  Their step mom has kicked them out of the house, so they are off to find their own way.  Ansel's Jeep dies near Live Oak, and they have to make money to fix it.  They meet Sophia Kelly, the candy maker, but things just don't seem quite right.

This was another great book by Jackson Pearce.  I love the way this story played out, so similar to the fairy tale, but with a really great twist.  I thought that the addition of Samuel, who is hunting for the dangerous things that are in the forest, made for an interesting plot twist.  Great read

I borrowed this from the public library
