Ryan and his friends don't think twice about stealing some money from a wishing well. After all, who's really going to miss a few tarnished coins? The well witch does. And she demands payback: Now Ryan, Josh, and Chelle must serve her . . . and the wishes that lie rotting at the bottom of her well. Each takes on powers they didn't ask for and don't want. Ryan grows strange bumps--are they "eyes"?--between his knuckles; Chelle starts speaking the secrets of strangers, no matter how awful and bloody; and Josh can suddenly--inexplicably--grant even the darkest of wishes, the kind of wishes that should "never" come true. Darkly witty, wholly unexpected, and exquisitely sinister, Frances Hardinge's "Well Witched" is one well-cast tale that readers didn't know they were wishing for.

Review quote

Deliciously shiver-inducing Fans of dark fantasies such as Neil Gaiman s Coraline will find this tale irresistible. --School Library Journal (starred review)
