HOW TO HANG A WITCH How to Hang a Witch, Book 1

by | Read by Adriana Mather

Young Adult Young Adult • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

The author, a descendant of the Puritan minister Cotton Mather, reads her fictional first-person narrative based on her family history. Mather makes clear the unfriendly reception that 15-year-old Sam receives when she moves to Salem with her stepmother. For unknown reasons, she is the target of the "ancestors," girls who are descended from the Salem witches. As narrator, Mather makes Sam's discomfort palpable as she fears the girls' hostility, worries about her father's illness, and recoils from anything spooky. These troubles add to the painful history of unexplained accidents that have always plagued those she cares about. Mather moves easily between reality and the supernatural, excelling in her portrayal of a centuries-old ghost and scary villains. The audiobook includes an illuminating author's note.
