Publisher's Summary

Eleven-year-old David is about to meet his new stepsister, Amanda, who is only one year older than he is. Amanda arrives at their big old house wearing a huge tattered shawl and carrying a sharp-eyed crow in a cage. She is hardly what David expects. Before long, she introduces David to a strange world of witchcraft and the occult. At first, spells and potions are fun. He enjoys the spooky chants and smoky seances. Even his younger brother and sisters join in, making sure their parents suspect nothing. But when rocks of all sizes start flying around the house and strange things go crash in the night, David begins to fear the strange forces at work.

Zilpha Keatley Snyder has written several popular children's books. A former teacher, she lives in an old house similar to the one in The Headless Cupid. She thinks it, too, may have a resident ghost. Whether you believe in spirits or not, this Newbery Honor Book is sure to captivate your imagination
