Read in February, 2011

The combination of a girl with bipolar disorder (manic-depressive) mixed in with the hysterical climate of the Salem Witch Trials period is an interesting and creative way to explore this period in history. Honestly, though, this book didn't excite me. There was nothing wrong with it, it just didn't personally move me. That said, the sense of a potentially supernatural being in the story could be a good way to grab reluctant students into a tale of historical fiction.
