Today at Kirkus Reviews...
...I talk about Mary Downing Hahn's upcoming Took:
Tell me if you’ve heard this one: a group of people—usually college students or people from the city or people with money—head to a rural area for rest and relaxation. The County Folk warn them about a local danger. The People From Away chalk the warnings up to unsophisticated superstition, and dismiss them (usually rudely). The Country Folk are later proven right.
That’s pretty much the storyline that Mary Downing Hahn is working with in Took.
