In her fourth book, accomplished writer Belinda Anderson has created a middle-grade novel that sizzles with suspense. When a witch disembarks from the train in a small town of Glasglen, WV, fifth-grader Jackson McKinney’s life is changed forever. Will he and his classmates find themselves the ingredients in Kid Soup? In this page turner, the bullied, friendless Jackson learns not only resourcefulness and courage, but also the importance of trust—of reaching out to friends.
A wild, wonderfuI, and witchy ride that will keep young readers hooked until the very last page!
— Gretchen Moran Luskas, author of The Miner’s Daughter
