The #1 New York Times bestseller!
It's the Salem Witch Trials meets Mean Girls in this riveting novel from one of the descendants of Cotton Mather, where high school starts to feel like a modern day witch hunt for a teen with all the wrong connections to Salem's past.

Salem, Massachusetts is the site of the infamous witch trials and the new home of Samantha Mather. Recently transplanted from New York City, Sam and her stepmother are not exactly welcomed with open arms. Sam is the descendant of Cotton Mather, one of the men responsible for those trials and almost immediately, she becomes the enemy of a group of girls who call themselves The Descendants. And guess who their ancestors were?
If dealing with that weren't enough, Sam also comes face to face with a real live (well technically dead) ghost. A handsome, angry ghost who wants Sam to stop touching his stuff. But soon Sam discovers she is at the center of a centuries old curse affecting anyone with ties to the trials. Sam must come to terms with the ghost and find a way to work with the Descendants to stop a deadly cycle that has been going on since the first accused witch was hanged. If any town should have learned its lesson, it's Salem. But history may be about to repeat itself.
"I am utterly addicted to Adriana Mather's electric debut. It keeps you on the edge of your seat, twisting and turning with ghosts, witches, an ancient curse, and— sigh— romance. It's beautiful. Haunting. The characters are vivid and real. I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down."
—Jennifer Niven, bestselling author of Holding up the Universe and All the Bright Places


"It's like Mean Girls meets history class in the best possible way." —Seventeen Magazine

"Mather shines a light on the lessons the Salem Witch Trials can teach us about modern-day bullying — and what we can do about it."—Bustle.com
"Strikes a careful balance of creepy, fun, and thoughtful." —NPR
