“The Grim Hill series gets another satisfying go-round with this fantasy/mystery romp…Another appealing mix of realism, whimsy, and legend.”—Booklist


The third installment of the Grim Hill series unfolds during the season of romance, when an easterly fairy wind blows through town. For months, Cat Peters has been wishing to live the normal life of a thirteen-year-old, and finally things seem to be going her way. She has once again helped her town escape the evil clutches of Fairy, and now she can’t wait to turn her attention from magic to the upcoming dance. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, Cat’s friends, her sister, and even her soccer coaches have all been preoccupied with thoughts of love. But in this creepy town, even Valentine hearts, charming decorations, and high school dances have a sinister side.
