2015 book 101

Ursula Vernon's Castle Hangnail
Local author Vernon's latest is one hundred percent the most adorable thing I have read in ages. It's all set at a crumbling magical castle, waiting for a new Master/Mistress to come take possession--when a 12 year old girl shows up, claiming to be a Wicked Witch but clearly having stolen an invitation from someone else. And everything that follows is delightful. All of the minions are great, and Molly is a witch in the spirit of Tiffany Aching, ie, super sensible and super rad. PLUS there are tons of adorable animal friends!!!! Oh, I totally loved this, and really hope it's the start of a series. A.
