HarperAudio. Jul. 2021. 705p. $20.99. ISBN 9780063021006.
G. 3-7–Esther may be 13 years old, but she knows in her heart that she is not too old to trick or treat. But this year everything is weird. No one is there to pass out candy, and even the moon looks different, more like a pumpkin. The few people Esther finds are asleep, except her best friend, her nemesis from school, and the local dentist. These four people may be all that separates their neighborhood from an infinite curse. Listeners will discover that these characters are more than what they seem, and as they bond during the hardship, they learn more about themselves and one another. Kevin R. Free’s narration makes it fun to relax and just experience the story.
VERDICT A great stand-alone read that you don’t need to wait for the fall holiday to enjoy. It will make a good addition to middle school or public library collections.
