The Witch of Blackbird Pond is one of the few books I can read over and over again. I first read it in the 7th grade, and enjoyed it. However, the more times I read it, the more I understand the actions of the characters, the irony, and the wonderful writing style. I love all the important little side plots and romances. Also, any book that can make me laugh, cry, and fall in love with the characters is awesome. I give this great book a 5!

I first discovered this book when I was in seventh grade. I have since read it to my nephiew and one day I plan to read it to my own children. It has a rich tapistry to go along with a compeling story.

I really liked the book "the witch of blackbird pond." If you decide to read this book read a few chapter in first because at the beginning of the book it is really boring because there is a lot of time spent on decusing the characters. (that is why I give it a 4/5 rating) I am not really into historical fiction books but this is one of the few I like. It leaves you are the edge of your seat for some parts. I highly recommend this book!!!

I enjoyed reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond because it kept me entertained and was vivid. I enjoyed the way the writer portrayed the story as well as the characters in the story. I felt like I was there in the book when I read it.

After her grandfathers death Kit leaves Barbados for New England. She is shocked by the gray, damp landscape and the Puritanical lifestyle of her uncles household. Fitting in is not easy, and her only friend is believed to be a witch. Kit must choose: either abandon Hannah, or stand by her and risk losing everything.
Boasting a stunning new cover and an introduction by Newbery Medalist Karen Cushman, this classic tale will capture the hearts and minds of todays readers.
by Random House,
Kit Tyler must leave behind shimmering Caribbean islands to join the stern Puritan community of her relatives. She soon feels caged, until she meets the old woman known as the Witch of Blackbird Pond. But when their friendship is discovered, Kit herself is accused of witchcraft!
