This book is about accusations of witchcraft in a Puritan society. Elsabeth has powers she doesn't really know how to use. If she can read minds, and wants to use her powers for good, does that make her a witch?
The pacing is faster than the Newbery-winning Witch of Blackbird Pond (about a related topic), but there's less depth and complexity in this book, too. This title works for readers who like supernatural powers, romance, and a bit of danger in their adventure books.
The best discussion questions, of course, are generated by and contemplated by readers. These questions are designed to avoid major spoilers about the book, and to provide a starting point for teachers, parents, and student reading groups.
