Why I liked this title:
Twelve year-old Emily Volnik returns from a visit to a Scottish castle her family has inherited with a keepsake - an old desk. But this is no ordinary desk. This desk is inhabited by a boggart, an ancient magical spirit. Read this funny, touching, and sometimes scary story of how a mischievous Old World spirit tries to deal with modern life.
