From the Publisher
When the four Stanley children meet Amanda, their new stepsister, they're amazed to learn that she studied witchcraft. They're stunned to see her dressed in a strange costume, carrying a pet crow, and surrounded by a pile of books about the supernatural.
It's not long before Amanda promises to give witchcraft lessons to David, Janie, and the twins. But that's when strange things start happening in their old house. David suspects Amanda of causing mischief, until they learn that the house really was haunted a long time ago.
Legend has it that a ghost cut the head off a wooden cupid on the stairway. Has the ghost returned to strike again? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

In The Headless Cupid, Amanda, the new stepsister, arrives in the Stanley household with a chip on her shoulder and a box of cool occult paraphenelia. The four Stanley children are fascinated and a little overwhelmed--but much to Amanda's surprise, they have a little magic to offer her in return.
Mysterious, lovely, understated.
The book is about a boy called David and his Brothers and his sisters. Oh, he also has a step sister called Amanda. When she comes to live with David, weird things start happening, like rocks just start appearing out of no where! Soon really weird stuff start happining that is very scary.
And at the end they finally find the Cupid's head and things turn out all right!
One of the bad points in the book is that it starts off kinda slow, and someties was confusing in the middle and near the end.
The good points of the book are when a a lot of wierd stuff start happing and Molly (the stepmom) starts getting really scared and she wants to move out of the house. Another good part of the book is when Amanda starts to actally talk to her mom and offers to teach the kids about the supernatural.
