Plain Kate by Erin Bow

Bow, Erin, Plain Kate, 336 pgs. Arthur A. Levine, 2010. Language: G, Sexual Content: G, Violence: PG

Plain Kate is young but she is a masterful carver. So skilled that her town thinks she can work deep magic. Which is dangerous since in her world witches are burned. When a stranger offers her escape from town and her one hearts desire in exchange for her shadow, Plain Kate accepts the bargain. Which was a bad idea.

This book had interesting magic with shadows and blood. It had good pace and great writing. But I didn't find it all that interesting. I got bored. MS, HS - OPTIONAL. Rebekah, youth services librarian
