I know I loved reading diary-style books when I was younger, so this is sure to be a winner with the Middle-School age group. The writing is appropriate for younger readers as well as enjoyable. Maggie's thoughts and actions surrounding the witch trials are sure to resonate with readers. Maggie's diary will tell of other events in the daily life of a teenager in the New World in the 1690's. Also, the characters and some of their roles within the trials are based on the author's ancestors and factual people of the town of Andover at the time; this was a bonus for me.
