(ages 9 - 12)  By now, Cat Peters knows to be careful what she wishes for. In this spellbound town, nestled in the shadow of Grim Hill, wishes have a tendency to turn against you. But this time, she isn't wishing for anything in this town; she is wishing to get out of it – that has to be safe, right? Cat, Clive, Jasper, and the rest of the "Grim Hill" crew are back, and everyone is buzzing about Darkmont High's student exchange to Sweden. For Cat it means hanging out with her friends in a foreign country, traveling without parents, and not having to keep an eye on her clingy kid sister. Even though Sookie's magical meddling seems to be in check, Cat has been wishing for a break from the constant worry of living near Grim Hill. Just as Cat dares to dream about the incredible trip of a lifetime, it becomes clear that she will have to make sacrifices to get to Sweden, like staying with her Great-Aunt Hildegaard, who insists on inviting young Sookie to tag along. When the girls arrive abroad, Hildegaard reveals a startling secret, and it turns out that the skills Cat learned battling Grim Hill's evil creatures will come in handy against an ancient Scandinavian threat. The tales of witches, elves, and trolls are eerily familiar to Cat, and soon she and her friends are trying to unravel a frightening new mystery that puts her family at risk. This is the fourth thrilling tale in the award-winning "Grim Hill" series.
