Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. Reviewed by Schaller D.
See if it's available at your library!
Sophie is cursed by the Witch of the Waste. She leaves town and her little hat shop, and she hops aboard Howl's Moving Castle. Unbeknownst to her, Howl has a mysterious past full of wizardry and magic. Sophie meets new friends, has one huge adventure, and has mix ups of her own. Read the book to find out the full story!
Another shnawesome (my personal word) book of mystery, full of puzzles to be figured out and magic. Jones puts it together nicely with lots of "Gotcha!" twists I never expected. I didn't want to put it down! Sophie's adventures are always different, along with the other characters'. Jones is talented and writes a mystery-filled magic book well. I would put it next to Harry Potter.
