Charlotte | 6 comments Read the book between 2003-2009 while in highschool.
The book was about a teenage girl (who i think was named Amber) who had run away from her mother and father after a boy assaulted her in a barn. She runs away to another town, where she is taken in by a older woman and taught magic with a few other girls, one whose name (I'm 95% sure) is called Tris.
During the book a sickness takes over the town, and the main girl is forced to help with healing and things like that.
There's also another group/coven who are made up of men, one of these boys she becomes friends with.
The book has a overall dreary feel to it, like it's set in medieval times.
The book cover that I remember was blue, with red writing and it was also not a very big book, quiet thin.

Here are all the books Tris is in as suggested by Krista https://www.goodreads.com/characters/...

Charlotte | 6 comments Thank you for you responses! But unfortunately they're not the books. I think the one I'm looking for might be an Australian book as I've never seen it anywhere on any sites since I read it.

Charlotte, you can bump your thread every month or so. That way, more people will see it, and eventually someone will know it.

That's it. Just post a comment, like you did, to bump your request. You can do this every 30+ days -- or sooner if you remember more information which you can add at any time.

Charlotte | 6 comments No it isn’t her unfortunately, had a look through what she’s written.

Rainbowheart | 15734 comments I also thought of Monica Furlong. Wise Child or Juniper?

message 13: by Charlotte (new)

Charlotte | 6 comments No that’s not it either but thank you for trying. The girl in It I’m pretty sure was fourteen, fifteen and I remember it very clearly, the setting and the beginning but just unfortunately not the name :-/
