This Salem witch story creates a sense of foreboding that lasts almost the entire length of the book, but doesn't as effectively convey the actual horror of what transpired. It suggests reasonable explanations for the events from the perspective of one of the girls (an imaginary one) who was caught up in the accusations, so because she isn't particularly admirable or likeable, I had some trouble relating to the narrator, Drucilla. Someone who is particularly interested in the Salem witch trials might find this book interesting, but it is not likely to draw in a reluctant reader.
