How to Hang a Witch | TeenreadsSign up for our newsletters! The novel was a great read; I found myself loving every page. With its perfect combination of teenage sarcasm and mystery, you won't regret picking this book up this summer. This fact adds a certain level of intrigue and uniqueness to the story that couldn't exist otherwise; very few books, or authors, for that matter, can boast this claim. After all, who better to tell the story of the descendants of those in the trial than one of those descendants herself? Her presence automatically conflicts with a group of of girls known as The Descendants descendants of those accused in the trials.
How to Hang a Witch- Review
The reviews are posted here for our readers, but also will be sent to the Book House where they will hopefully be used to inform customers about the books they may want to purchase. We will try to publish one review a week for the spring. Have you ever felt alone? Been bullied by a group of mean girls? If so, then you can definitely relate to the struggle of Samantha Mather, a normal high school student who just transferred to Salem, Massachusetts.
Salem, Massachusetts is the site of the infamous witch trials and the new home of Samantha Mather. Recently transplanted from New York City, Sam and her stepmother are not exactly welcomed with open arms. Sam is the descendant of Cotton Mather, one of the men responsible for those trials and almost immediately, she becomes the enemy of a group of girls who call themselves The Descendants. And guess who their ancestors were? If dealing with that weren't enough, Sam also comes face to face with a real live well technically dead ghost. A handsome, angry ghost who wants Sam to stop touching his stuff.
