M. K. Theodoratusabout this book: The Ghostcrow is a YA coming of age story. Teenager Dumdie Swartz's abilities are growing so strong a demon possessing a bully decides it wants to possess Dumdie instead...when she senses something evil living in Kyle, one of the boys who had raided the pumpkin patch.
Kyle bullies Dumdie to scare her into silence. The more Kyle threatens her, the clearer she perceives the evil thing possessing him. Dumdie finds support in an unlikely group of girls who befriend her when she helps them with their costumes for the Pumpkin festival. During the festival, Dumdie's fears explode when the thing possessing Kyle decides it wants to possess her. Dumdie learns there are worse things in the world than seeing ghosts.
The novelette is a prequel to another story, The Ghost in the Closet. Dumdie has never heen happy with seeing ghosts, but I got curious about the story when she resigned herself to her talents.
Since Dumdie finds solace working in a shared garden with her elderly neighbor, Mr. Carson, I decided to use the scrarecrow in the garden as a tool to help Dumdie after Mr. Carson died. It's also where the title, The Ghostcrow, came from.
