Witch Child

Elia Rees's WITCH CHILD spirited its way onto the Book Sense Children's Only 76 list as one of the Top 10 books that independent booksellers like to handsell Within a month this riveting book sold out its first two hardcover printings Now Candlewick Press is pleased to announce the publication of WITCH CHILD in paperbac. Witch Child by Celia Rees explores a very contradictory issue that existed in America for a vast amount of time The Salem Witch trials are studied in classes to this day and the events that took place still haunt many people This novel does not focus directly or bluntly state the events of the Salem Witch Trials but is obviously focused in that central time period The setting of this novel is essential in the plot which is something I do not regularly see in other texts This uniue focus on that specific literary element really intrigued me I don t think this book would be the same if alternate literary devices had been demonstrated to portray the overall theme of hardships of witch craftAdditionally the point of view of this novel played an essential role in portraying the message Rees intended If the narrator of this novel hadn t been a witch suffering from the mistreatment and horrors surrounding her the readers would not be subject to bias and might hold a different opinion on the events Overall this novel is very well written and despite a few disturbing images that prevented me from reading it in the past I really enjoyed this book and recommend it
