About the Book
Title: RAISING THE HORSEMAN
Author: Serena Valentino
Pub. Date: September 6, 2022
Formats: Hardcover, eBook
From the New York Times best-selling author of Disney’s Villains series comes a ghostly new stand-alone novel that reimagines The Legend of Sleepy Hollow through the eyes of a modern teen.
The two-hundredth anniversary of the Headless Horseman’s legendary haunting of Sleepy Hollow is approaching, but Kat van Tassel wants nothing to do with the town’s superstitious celebrations. As a descendant of the original Katrina van Tassel, Kat knows she’s expected to fulfill her ancestor’s legacy by someday marrying her longtime boyfriend and running the prestigious family estate. But Kat dreams of a life outside Sleepy Hollow.
Then Kat meets Isadora, a new girl in town who challenges Kat to reexamine those expectations, opens her eyes to the possibility that ghosts are real, and makes her question who she truly wants to be . . . and be with.
When Kat is given the original Katrina’s diary, a new legend begins to take shape, one that weaves together the past and the present in eerie ways. Can Kat uncover a two-hundred-year-old secret, and trace its shocking reverberations in her own life, in time to protect what she truly loves?
Fans of Serena Valentino will delight in this supernatural coming-of-age tale that finally gives the women of Sleepy Hollow a chance to tell their side of the story.
“A sweet retelling of a spooky classic.”―Kirkus Reviews
When I tell you HOW excited I was to see the premise of this book! I have always enjoyed this Halloween story, and the Headless Horseman has a special place in my heart as one of the icons during Disney’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party which my family and I will be attending on Monday! My goal is to snag a photo of this one during the Boo-To-You parade, I can’t wait!
I have been saving this one to get me in the spooky season mood for our trip and I am loving it! I always adore Serena Valentino’s writing style, and how she gives us the Gillian backstory’s we NEED!
