    1. Salem Witch by Patricia HermesIt was an okay-read. I didn't love it. I did like how she did the different point of views. The writing and the story line didn't have me hooked. It was interesting to see how people did things back then and how people thought that they were witches but I didn't love it. 2/5: Not something I would read again.xoxo,Bebe


    2. I really liked this book. Especially how is shows the differing points of view of the salem witch trials. I actually wish there was more, and that the girls were found out and punished. I also wish that the two stories met up more often, but it was pretty good otherwise. Told my kids about it, they were not interested in reading it with me. They thought it was awful about the hangings.


    3. Powerful and ultimately quite devastating in its insights into the dynamics of persecution. Beautifully written.


    4. Reviewed by Steph for TeensReadTooSALEM WITCH: MY SIDE OF THE STORY is told from two different perspectives. Elizabeth is a young girl living in Boston who unfortunately angers the wrong people: her cousin and her cousin's friends. Suddenly, Elizabeth finds herself being accused of being a witch! And this isn't good news since the town of Boston recently hung a few accused "witches." Can Elizabeth prove her innocence before she is hanged? What will happen if no one believes that she's innocent o [...]


    5. - Considering that this is a children's book (I wrongly assumed that it would be Young Adult when I bought it in a charity shop), the writing is very strong and the story was interesting.- It had potential to be a great completed work. It felt like the author went, "That's it! I'm done. I don't want to do this any more." The book could have been expanded by tying up loose ends e.g. the young girls who're accusing people of witchcraft.- It was a quick read. Too quick, in fact. I don't think I spe [...]


    6. I love reading historical fiction about the Salem Witch Trials, but they're harder to come by than one might think. has been very helpful about bringing other novels to light!I ordered this book through Interlibrary loan, and didn't realize it was written for a MUCH younger audience. I typically don't have a problem re-reading children's books (Well hello there, Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High) but this one was a little too juvenile for me.It only took me 20 minutes to read though, so I [...]


    7. This seems like an interesting series of historical fiction for middle grade readers. It's a fairly short bookbut it shows the Salem Witch trials from 2 perspectives a girl who doesn't beleive the accused are witches and that the accusers are actinge other, a boy whose father is a judge, and he believes they may be witches. It gives some insight into what happened but didn't really delve into why very much. A good amount of info for children but not as much as I would have liked. Still I'm inter [...]


    8. It was really neat to explore this time period, and to read about the origin of the Salem Witch trials. It's wasn't "witchcrafty" or "dark-magicy" or anything like that, so I was cool with it. It's an easy read, too. Had a bit of an unsatisfactory ending, but it wasn't terrible by any means. I recommend it to anyone interested in the Salem Witch trials. The author never says whether the demon possession was a hoax or not, but leaves you with enough of an argument from both sides to decide for yo [...]


    9. This was a cute book. It made me want to learn more about the Salem Witch Trials and the characters who played a part in them. It was the most interesting to find out that Nathaniel Hawthorne had relatives that played a role in those trials causing him to change the spelling of his last name


    10. Great book, really liked how you could read it from 2 different views. Really liked how it ended didn't like it on her side b/c it was rather sad but glad how it ended this time. Its during the salem witch trials and how all the girls kept accusing others of being a witch when those girls just didn't like them or they were just being terrible.


    11. Short and entertaining. It was refreshing to see a young characters who are educated as well as emotionally supportive and concern about the maddness surrounding them. Never though 12 year olds could care so muchbut then again it is a work of fiction.


    12. It was a good book to read, if you are a person who likes two sides to every story. It had about 80 pages of character George's side and 91 pages of a girl named Elizabeth who was accused of being a witch and throughout the book you constantly have "aha" moments. It's a great quick read


    13. Interesting to give two different perspectives of the Salem Witch trials--one from a young girl who is accused and the other from her best friend, the son of the local judge conducting the trials.


    14. I've always been fascinated about the Salem witch trials. This is probably my favorite book I've read that takes place in that period. I love the fact you can flip the book over to get the other characters view. It's a real easy read, and I was very happy with the ending.


    15. It was okay was cool to see the Salem Witch Trials through two different views! I liked it but I wouldn't read it again. If you are intrested in the Salem Witch Trials you should read it though.


    16. I thought it was interesting reading it from two different points of view. Glad of the ending though. Scary to have lived in those times I think.



    17. This was interesting because you could read both sides of the stories. I wish I knew what actually happend and if there were witches or just a joke.




    18. A flip book of the points of view of two children in the times of the Salem Witch Trials. They see friends and neighbors hanged for they have been accused. Good Book!! :)






    19. I love this series of books - it's a flip-book with two stories, narrated by two different characters: two sides of the same story. So you read one and then flip over for the other side, fun stuff!
