Publisher's Summary

After publishing a ghoulish article on how to make saltwater taffy in a haunted kitchen, accomplished screenwriter and playwright Kate Milford has shifted her talents toward books for young audiences. In Milford’s first novel, 13-year-old Natalie knows there’s something unnatural about Dr. Jake Limberleg when he comes into her father’s bicycle-repair shop. But when Limberleg claims he can perform miraculous healings, Natalie begins to seriously doubt whether she’s up to the challenge this potentially dangerous man presents.

Like a PG rated Neil Gaimen

Great story pacing. Not too scary. Would be fun to read to a child at night before bed to talk about and have fun being scared and learning classic Americana
