This was one of my favorite books in middle school. I loved learning about the salem witch trials. This book helped me understand and relate to the story alot! I love this book and read it many times a year.

A frightening portrait of the mass hysteria behind the notorious Salem witch trials--based on historical accounts.
Susanna desperately wants to join the circle of girls who meet every week at the parsonage. What she doesn't realize is that the girls are about to set off a torrent of false accusations leading to the imprisonment and execution of countless innocent people. Susanna faces a painful choice. Should she keep quiet and let the witch-hunt panic continue, or should she "break charity" with the group--and risk having her own family members named as witches?
