Middle school student Clara Hutchins and her mother inherit a creaky Victorian bed and breakfast on the outskirts of Biskopskulla, Illinois, a lonely historic site settled by a group of religious fanatics. In the present day, it’s just a tiny town—a village, technically—where Clara’s prospects for new friends are as low as the population.

As she adjusts to her new surroundings, Clara discovers that her family has a history in the region: one hundred forty years ago, one of her ancestors was hanged as a witch from the white oak tree on the edge of town.

When Clara finds a mildewed diary in the basement, she’s even able to read the rambling thoughts of this long-dead relative.

But as they quest through historic cemeteries, backcountry libraries, and high-octane academic bowl tournaments, something sinister is lurking, watching, and waiting…
