White Crow
by Marcus Sedgwick


Overview -

Some secrets are better left buried; some secrets are so frightening they might make angels weep and the devil crow. A scary novel by a three-time Printz Award honoree.

Thought provoking as well as intensely scary, Marcus Sedgwick's White Crow unfolds in three voices.

Rebecca has come to a small seaside village to spend the summer.
Ferelith offers to show Rebecca the secrets of the town . . . but at a price.
Finally, there's a priest whose descent into darkness illuminates the girls' frightening story.

White Crow is as beautifully written as it is horrifically gripping.

This title has Common Core connections.
