The Last Apprentice, Revenge of the Witch
I recommend the book, The Last Apprentice, Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney, particularly if you have read Harry Potter, fantasy, or science fiction. It is about a boy named Tom who is a seventh son of a seventh son. His father found him a job to work for a spook. A spook rids towns of witches, bogarts, or ghosts. Tom finishes his monthly trial, but with grave news. A daughter of a witch tricks Tom into feeding a powerful witch (most of her power had drained away) something that gave her enough strength to break free of her bones. This would allow her to move from her dead body to someone else's body and possess it! What will Tom do to destroy her?
