Fire is like a rumour. You might think you've extinguished it but one creeping, red tendril, one single wisp of smoke is enough to let it leap back into life again. Especially if someone is watching, waiting to fan the flames...

New school. Tick.

New town. Tick.

New surname. Tick.

Social media profiles? Erased.

There's nothing to trace Anna back to her old life. Nothing to link her to the 'incident'.

At least that's what she thinks... until the whispers start up again. As time begins to run out on her secrets, Anna finds herself irresistibly drawn to the tale of Maggie, a local girl accused of witchcraft centuries earlier. A girl whose story has terrifying parallels to Anna's own...

The compelling YA debut from Laura Bates, author of Everyday Sexism and Girl Up.

This is such a good novel. There has been a rash of YA books dealing with this subject lately, but in my opinion this is the best of the bunch. I genuinely couldn't put this down once I'd started reading it,... More
