Out-of-class read book review

The novel Sacrifice by Kathleen Benner Duble is about the witch scare in the Salem region. People accussing one another of witch craft, no one can be trusted, so who would you sacrifice to be free?

The novel tells a story of a girl and her family living near Salem. Her father suffers from sudden stress induced spouts of insanity. The whole keeps this family under a micrscope, observing every move they make. The thought of witches being among the town forces the people to accuse members of this family.

When the two sisters get thrown in a Salem jail with their aunt, they are forced to choose " sacrifice someone else or rot in jail?"
