Wicked Girls is great book for people who love history but hate reading borning textbooks to learn about it. Wicked Girls, which is written in poem form, is about girls who acuse people of being witches. This book is set in Salem during the famous Salem Witch Trials. The main characters of this book, Margeret, Mercy, Ann, ELizabeth, and Abigail all start seeing the "underworld" and they begin to acuse innocent people. The girls begin to have secert meetings to plan out who is the next to be accused and to plan what kind of "hauntings" they will use as evidence that the person they are accussing is in fact a witch. But this book isn't only about witches. Margeret has a love affair with a young lad named Isaac. Throughout the book you see their struggling relationship. You also get a glimpse into Mercy's life as a servant who has no family. As you read you learn that Ann is manipulative and likes to be in control and can't stand when she isn't in charge. Though Elizabeth and Agigail aren't huge characters they still play a major part in the accusations. Though the book ending is a tad disapointing the rest of the book makes up for it. I would highly recommend this book!
