Gallows HillGallows Hill by Lois Duncan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After realizing the TV movie I've Been Waiting For You was based on a book, I knew I had to get my hands on it. I remember watching the movie when it aired somewhere around '97 and I enjoyed it. However, after reading Gallows Hill, I was a little disappointed in the fact that the movie didn't stick to the original story. It was completely different from what I was expecting and that's not a bad thing.

I liked that fact that there were more scenes in the book involving the Salem witches. Lois Duncan even provides us with a few book titles to look up for further reading on the real Salem Witch Trials. This book provided more information into why Sarah Zoltanne moved from California in the first place. I also liked the addition of her friend Charlie, it made the tale more interesting.

This is a YA classic. Easily read and enjoyable. If you're looking for something to read for Halloween that has just a touch of creepiness, I would suggest Gallows Hill.
