Description of this Book

When Anna Clark arrives in a small fishing village in the middle of the school year her social media profiles are mysteriously empty. It's as if until recently she didn't even exist. But while Anna hopes a new home means a fresh start, she's about to find out that you can't outrun the past forever. As time starts to run out on her secrets, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to the tale of Maggie, a local woman accused of witchcraft centuries earlier, whose story has terrifying parallels to Anna's own... Gripping, page-turning YA that exposes the age-old prejudices that girls are facing today. Perfect for fans of HOLLY BOURNE and LOUISE O'NEILL
