Sang Spell by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

This story written by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor is based upon a young man named Josh who tragically loses his mother in a car accident. The story unravels as Josh decides to hitchhike from Massachusetts to Texas to get to his aunt’s house after he loses his mother. Josh encounters a man while he is hitchhiking who ends up beating him and robbing him of almost everything he has and leaves him for dead on the side of the road. When Josh awakens, he’s in an odd remote place called Canara. The modern world is hidden by the hills and the trees but is there something else hiding the village?

If you like suspense, this book is packed full of it right to the very end. You won’t want to put the book down until you finish it and find out what happens to Josh.
