Editorial Reviews

Jeanne Triner
This time-travel suspense novel has an extra twist. Not only does the narrator, Abbey Harmon, find herself traveling back to the days of the Salem witch trials, but also she leaves her own reality in 1963, giving teen readers a good look at what life was like when their parents were in high school. Staub provides a good mix of history, humor, and romance as well as a high level of suspense without gratuitous violence as Abbey searches for a way to alter history and save Felicity Crane and an unidentified stranger (who turns out to be Abbey herself) from being hung as witches. Abbey is intelligent, witty, and believable, without being too good to be true. The 1960s family dynamic is right on target, and the author handles the vagaries of time travel in a convincing and consistent manner. A refreshing step-up from much that's available for young adults who read horror fiction.
