Large Print. Mystery fiction. The Secret of Grim Hill; Cat Peters just transferred to Darkmont High and is already desperate to get out. There's no way her mom can afford the tuition at Grimoire, the posh, private school nearby, so when Cat hears that Grimoire is offering a full scholarship to the winners of a soccer match, she jumps at the chance! Once she makes the team, everything starts going Cat's way. It's as if the whole town is under a spell - all anyone cares about is the soccer game. Elated by her new celebrity status, Cat doesn't pay much attention when her little sister, Sookie, and their bookworm neighbor, Jasper, try to tell her there's something ... just not right about the old school on the hill. But when terrible things start happening, Cat is forced to take Sookie and Jasper seriously and figure out what is going on. While investigating, Cat stumbles across a book of ancient Celtic myth and fairy lore and quickly realizes that something truly wicked is at work inside the walls of Grimoire.

The Secret Of Grim Hill:
This book is amazing. I read the first one when I was in grade 4, and I've loved the whole series ever since. It's about a teenage girl named Cat who has to deal with the struggle of moving to a new house in the middle of nowhere. On top of that, she has to make friends, take care of her sister, and try to make a good impression in her new high school. It doesn't make it easier that she starts to notice something eerie about her area... This book is really interesting, gripping, and enjoyable. It brings a new twist to regular fantasy stories, and brings out the evil folklore that you wouldn't usually see in a book. I liked it a lot, and I would recommend it for girls (or boys) age 10-14 who like a good mystery and a little bit of scares. The Secret of Grim Hill will definitely get you hooked on to the series, and if you take my advice and read it, I hope you like it as much as I did!

Really good book!!!!I would recommend this to a friend.I liked how it had the name "goth girl" for the creepy fairy who told Sookie the facts about Grim Hill,instead of "Lucinda".Also I liked when the author showed different examples of situations that happened so that they didn't have to cancel soccer practice on Saturday.ASB,(awesome suspense book)!

Not really scary, but when I read it I was only 5, so I got a bit scared. I no longer read the grim hill series, but I've read this one and the first book. Cat was good.
