Description

Susanna English desperately wants to join the circle of girls who meet every week at the parsonage, but she doesnÂt realize the leader of the group, the malicious Ann Putnam, is about to set off a torrent of false accusations that will lead to the imprisonment and execution of countless innocent people-victims of a witch-hunt panic. ÂThe authorÂs skillful manipulation of the conventions of the young-adult novel-particularly the rich exploration of being an outsider and going against the mainstream-makes this book a superb vehicle for examining the social dynamics of this legendary event.Â-The Horn Book
