Overview

The Broken Circle is the first book in a new young adult, crossover, fantasy trilogy by Cheryl Potter, one of the foremost experts in the world of knitting, dyes, and patterns. This first book follows the story of twelve knitting witches through adventures fraught with mayhem and mischief. Twenty years have passed since the fire beneath the great dyepot was lit and the circle was complete. Now, the inhabitants of the Middlelands face a danger worse than any can remember. Darkness and chaos threaten to destroy the delicate balance of the natural world, and the magic of the dye crystals that have always been a way of life, and a great source of power for the people, has been outlawed. With female protagonists and strong male characters introduced along the way, The Broken Circle introduces themes of family relationships, coming of age, tough decision making, and so much more.

In the spirit of learning and enhancing the reading experience, the end of the book features a reading guide workbook complete with analytical reasoning questions, critical reading questions, discussion prompts, and vocabulary words for each chapter. The workbook is a fantastic learning tool for independent readers as well as for parents and educators.

“...this one is a really good example of how the genre should be done. The characters are likable...each of them is also decidedly human and relatable.&#x201d
