"a must for every reading list" 

A brave young orphan is caught up in the Salem Witch Trials, the largest and most lethal witch-hunt in American history. Can she escape disaster?

From bestselling author Scott Peters and Salem Witch whiz Juliet Fry.

On a stormy night, young orphan, Hannah, is terrified to see witches’ fingers tapping at her bedroom window. When her best friends tell her witches are sending their spirits to attack them—to pinch them and jab them with needles—Hannah's alarm grows. But then her friends start accusing neighbors of practicing magic, dark arts, and witchcraft. Unfortunately, some of the accused are good people that Hannah has known all her life. Hannah is faced with a terrible choice: to side with her friends, or to fall under suspicion for refusing to name names. Can Hannah appease her friends and escape this scary trial? Can this brave but frightened colonial girl ever hope to escape disaster?

Based on extensive research, this inspirational story is exceptionally vivid, swift-paced, and stirring. During the infamous Salem, Massachusetts Witch Trials of 1692, over 200 American men and women were accused of witchcraft and faced terrible trials. 

This is the 6th children's book in the I Escaped Series about brave kids who face real world challenges and find ways to survive. 

Sure to appeal to fans of books like I Survived by New York Times Bestseller Lauren Tarshis, The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare, Little Witch by Anna Elizabeth Bennett, What Were The Salem Witch Trials, and The Witches by Roald Dahl. 

Packed with a special section on facts about the Salem Witch trials for kids, information about the Puritans, and much more.
