The Headless Cupid by: Zilpha Keatley Snyder Adeline Busacco
Genre The Headless Cupid is a fiction because witchcraft isn’t real and almost all of the events are mostly fake. I also know this because ghosts and poltergeists are not real, therefore, this story is a fantasy.
Setting The setting in The Headless Cupid is in a very old house in the country side called Westerly place. Yes, the house has a name. The Stanly kids live in Westerly place and the kids are David, an 11-year-old, Janie, a 5-year-old, and Blair and Esther, who are 4-years-old.
Summary The Headless Cupid is mainly about the Stanly kids, David, who is the oldest, Janie, Blair and Esther. Blair and Esther are the twins in the family. The kids are awaiting a new stepsister, Amanda. She was going to live with them. Amanda is not an average 12 year old. She is familiar with the supernatural and witchcraft! Everything goes well for the first couple of days of her living with the Stanlys. That is, until the kids find out that their house, Westerly place, is haunted by a poltergeist, also known as a noisy spirit! It apparently chopped the cupid on the banister’s head off very long ago! Then, Amanda starts to act really weird. She has always been weird, but never this weird! This is scary weird! The Stanly kids need to have special ceremony to get rid of the noisy spirit. Will they be able to get rid of this spirit?
Recommendation I think The Headless Cupid was one of the best books I have ever read! I think a lot of other people should enjoy it as well. I thought The Headless Cupid was a entertaining book because it had an amazing ending that made me want to read it again! It also had an interesting twist to it and a mysterious plot. It was not only a good book, it kept me engaged in with the characters. The ghostly plot and the strange concept are keeping the reader reading on, and leaving a cliff hanger once and a while! You should find “The Headless Cupid” in a library, and get reading!
