Anna and her mother have moved hundreds of miles to put the past behind them. Anna hopes to make a fresh start and escape the harassment she''s been subjected to. But then rumors and whispers start, and Anna tries to ignore what is happening by immersing herself in learning about Maggie, a local woman accused of witchcraft in the seventeenth century. A woman who was shamed. Silenced. And whose story has unsettling parallels to Anna''s own.

The Burning is a powerful call to action, perfect for readers looking for:

  • feminist novels for teens
  • young adult realistic fiction books
  • contemporary novels with historical fiction elements
  • books that deal with current events and issues
