I would probably read this book in middle or high school.
In this book sixteen year old Kit goes to live with her aunt, uncle, and their three daughters. While she is there, she meets an old lady and they become great friends. When her uncle finds out, he bans Kit from ever seeing her again. Kit finds out the townspeople think the old lady is a witch. Kit sneaks away to visit her anyway, and is soon accused of witchcraft. Later on Kit gets in big trouble with the law.
This book has no bad language, and very minor romance. It has no violence, but mentions hanging, and someone being branded.
This is a very good book, but I would definitely read it when you are older.
My favorite character is Kit. She is brave, and, strong, and stands up for what is right.
I hope you enjoy it!!
