Epic read recommended

How To Hang A Witch was a fascinating, mysterious book with a real-life background that made it even more enjoyable. The author of this book, Adriana Mather, is actually descended from Cotton Mather who lived in the town of Salem and although he had many historical works and acts in his time the one he is most remembered for is his part in the Salem witch trials. In the modern day of this book Sam Mather (the fictional descendent of Cotton) comes to live in Salem and the people of the town, including the teenagers descended from the original witches of Salem, aren't very welcoming to her. Then soon after she settles into her new school and house strange, unexplainable things start occuring.

Thought this book was a bit to convuluted. Had a great ending though. Interesting fact, the author is related to Cotton Mather who played a large part in the Salem Witch Trials.

I couldn't really get into those book right away but I kept reading and I ended up loving the book. Really looking forward to her new book coming out and getting to see what kind of author she really is!
