Howls Moving castle by Diane Wynne Jones

Howl's Moving Castle by Diane Wynne JonesHowl's Moving Castle by Diane Wynne Jones is one of the best books I have read.It starts out with Sophie as the eldest sister of three sisters. In the land which she lives in, the eldest is not considered to amount to much. So, when her other two sisters set out to seek their fortunes, Sophie is perfectly fine with working in her father’s hat shop talking to the hats, such as "You will marry money". After all the eldest do not amount to much, right? One day while she is in the hat shop, the witch of the waste, who is said to be as bad as Wizard Howl, who supposedly eats girls hearts, according to rumors, stops by the shop. She turns Sophie into an old lady. The rest of the story is very good, with lots of twists and turns, and the sequel Castle in the air is even better. There was also a movie based on the book, so be sure to check it out!
