This is truly my favorite time of year. I love the change of the seasons. I love the way the light turns golden, the mornings are crisp and foggy, the trees explode with color. I even love when Oregon returns to her natural, rainy state.

I love Halloween so much that I went trick-or-treating every year until I got married. I'm short and a sheet ghost costume easily disguised my too oldness.
That is why I am so happy to introduce to you, Saving Halloween by Lisa Ard. (Remember her?)
When book-smart Anne Parson meets Halloween Spavento, she sees exactly
what she wants to see -- a friend. Halloween waves away trouble,
magically silences school bullies and offers Anne unfailing friendship.
But, when the Spavento family's enchanting exploits are exposed, will
Anne face her fears and save Halloween?
A spellbinding tale of
outcasts who find acceptance, a girl who discovers the true meaning of
family, and characters who are not always what they seem.
