"My Side of the Story" is completely unique approach to historical fiction. Read the story of one youngster's life in turbulent times, then flip the book and find out first hand how another child reacts to the same events - with very different feelings and results! Elizabeth - Elizabeth's family is different from others. As a young girl in 1692, she is lucky to have been raised to value learning and independent thought. When a group of girls her age begins having tremors and accusing villagers of witchcraft, Elizabeth refuses to be swayed, even by her dearest friend, George. But when the witchcraft trials begin, being different leads to trouble...George - It's 1692, and witches are inhabiting the souls of Salem villagers. Or are they? George doesn't know what to think. His father is certain the devil has come to Salem Village, and he is the judge who will decide the witches' fate. When George's best friend, Elizabeth, comes under suspicion for witchcraft, George must decide what he truly believes.
