Written in a poetic form, this book is not as long as it seems. Also, if you are a sophomore, junior, or senior who has already studied “The Crucible”, by Arthur Miller, don’t think you know everything! Written from a different point of view, this story delves deeper into the minds of the Afflicted than “The Crucible” ever did!
Think life was all about surviving back in the 1600s? Well, you’re right! But it’s not always the elements that are the most frightening- sometimes it’s the people themselves, your friends and neighbors, that you have to look out for. Read and find out the deep crevasse these girls find themselves in- and how their lives are completely changed by it (you can also check out how the rest of their lives went at the end of the book).
