Happy Sock Sunday! I’m currently reading Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg last week’s Sock Sunday Read! It’s been a busy week and I hope to be done with it this week some time so I can put my review up. Today, I decided to post about one of my favorite books that I’ve read early this year. I read The Old Willis Place by Mary Downing Hahn as part of my Battle of the Books Competition. This book was one of my favorites. I will place a review up later this week on it.
Diana and her little brother Georgie have been living in the woods behind the old Willis place, a decaying Victorian mansion, for what already seems like forever. They aren’t allowed to leave the property or show themselves to anyone. But when a new caretaker comes to live there with his young daughter, Lissa, Diana is tempted to break the mysterious rules they live by and reveal herself so she can finally have a friend. Somehow, Diana must get Lissa’s help if she and Georgie ever hope to release themselves from the secret that has bound them to the old Willis place for so long.
