Bad Blood

(4) YA Sixteen-year-old Heather is plagued by nightmares and impulses to cut herself. On an annual summer trip to Edinburgh, she tries to ignore these strange happenings--until she learns they might mean she is a witch. A light contemporary travel mystery contrasts with Heather's sinister dreams and supernatural experiences. Her increasingly eerie story is engaging, but conflating self-harm with powerful blood magic is problematic.
