After being expelled from school, thirteen-year-old David Eliot is sent to Groosham Grange, a spooky and sinister boarding school where nothing seems quite right.

David just got expelled from a boarding school. His strange parents receive a brochure on a new boarding school called Groosham Grange. They are only given 30 minutes to decide whether or not to send him. They send him blindly off into a new school and he finds that this is not just some ordinary boarding school, not even close. ( )

It is so weird that it is interesting. This was originally published in 1988. I think that its strangeness would appeal to kids. It is written in short chapters, like Patterson, so it has an added appeal of feeling like a short book. It does not take much to get to know the characters since they feel insubstantial. I found it very interesting that the main character, David Eliot is ambivalent about what he will do with his new found powers at the story's end. It kind of makes you want to follow him and see what he decides. ( )
