2013 book 280

Zilpha Keatley Snyder's The Headless Cupid
The other day The Millions posted a great list of five YA series adults may have missed--and since two (Howl's and Half Magic) are two of my very faaaavorites, and I remembered liking Wolves of Willoughby Chase, I figured I'd check out the Zilpha Keatley Snyder one. And my only disappointment is that the three later books in the series seem to be out of print! But this first one is pretty charming, where a family has to deal with their new stepsister, who's really into the supernatural (though it's clear she's just trying to bug her mom). Really great sibling relationships and I liked how Snyder handled the post-divorce emotional turmoil. I really am bummed I can't read the other three.
