Synopsis:

amazon Goodreads
Halloween is Kat McGee’s day.

She may feel like a loser the rest of the year, but come the season of trick-or-treating, costume contests, hay mazes, and haunted houses, Kat reigns supreme. No one in Totsville, Maine can bob a better apple or carve a more perfect pumpkin.

But now the mysterious Dr. S is threatening to take Kat’s day away. Dr. S hates Halloween as much as Kat loves it. Kat’s in a panic over the holiday ban in Totsville when grandmotherly magic transports her to the wondrous city of Treatsville, where Halloween costumes live all year long– and where the key to saving Halloween in Totsville just might lie.

But Treatsville is being menaced, too. Costumes are disappearing, and the Halloween magic is going with them. It’s up to Kat to help. Aided by the sugary-sweet spells of good witch Dolce, her sidekick owl DeLeche, and Kat’s best costumes ever–Jujitsu Princess and Candy Cane Witch– Kat must face down haunted forests, cruel tests, and the blackest magic the evil Snaggletooth can throw at her. She’ll learn lessons about sharing the Halloween glory– and learning to feel like a winner on every day, not just Halloween.

Hott Review:

What I liked: Kat McGee is really adorable. I love these books. It’s perfect for my pre-teen daughter who has the same “I’m nothing special” feelings about herself. It shows her how wrong she is and that she’s not alone in the midst of a wonderful & scarily fun story.
What I didn’t like: Nothing 😉

Author Bio:

Kristin Riddick doesn’t look good in hats, but she seems to wear a lot of them. Her voice has been heard on shows such as One Tree Hill, The OC, Everybody Hates Chris, and Chuck, and on-camera she recently played opposite Megan Mullally on Fox’s Breaking In. She’s written a screenplay, a pilot, a middle-grade book, and a lot of memorable thank you notes… so she’s told. She teaches Pilates and spinning to stay sane, may have a super power or two, and takes a lot of chances riding her bike all over Los Angeles because she gets road rage when driving. A native of Corpus Christi, Texas, Kristin graduated from The University of Virginia and currently divides her time between LA and Austin with her multi-talented producer husband David Kirkwood.
