"If you like stories about strange happenings, allow me to recommend a book about a girl named Amanda, who is either a witch or stepsister or both."

I would have told them about a book I was thinking about on the drive. It was a book about a girl named Kit who acquires a reputation for witchcraft. It gets her into a lot of trouble, but she does manage to find someone she can trust. His name is Nathaniel, and he names a ship after her. The ship is called The Witch, but I couldn’t remember the name of the author. I also didn’t want to think about someone who liked this book more than I did, someone whose name was also Kit.
