 Sixteen-year-old Elizabeth Winters may be a witch, but she doesn’t know the first thing about magic—unless you count accidental bouts of spontaneous combustion. Elizabeth’s father, a wizard himself, has forbidden the use of her powers for her own protection, but when accusations of witchcraft start flying through Salem Village, she wishes she was more prepared.
Despite her lack of magical knowledge, Elizabeth appoints herself to save innocent women from the demise the village has in store for them. Elizabeth finds, however, that she is not the hero Salem needs her to be.
She meant to save them. She cursed them instead. 

 
Devil's Playground by Heather Eagar

Devil's PlaygroundSalem, home of the infamous witch trials. Innocent people were hung, burned or bludgeoned. That’s the world Elizabeth grew up in, where one accusation could be deadly, and she had reason to fear, she was born a witch, but she knew nothing about magic or controlling it, and it could be her downfall in spite of her wanting to be the advocate for the falsely accused and to save their lives any way possible. What Elizabeth discovers is she is no heroine, her lack of control over her powers, her lack of training, is bringing more harm than good to Salem, her family and herself. Will she figure a way out of the nightmare she has secretly caused or will she be betrayed by the one boy she thought really cared about her?

Devil’s Playground recounts the horrors of life during the Salem Witch Trials, where friend would turn on friend in order to save their own souls from the devil. Religious brainwashing by a zealot pastor with less than holy ideals and actions, the horrors of the times are relived in every word author Heather Eagar writes while keeping the gore to a minimum for young adult readers.

Extremely well crafted, with scenes that bring the past to life from the sights to the smells, Ms. Eagar takes her readers to a an era of ugliness while giving us breathing characters, including one teen who wants desperately to save the world with her personal crusade, only to find it is far beyond what she is capable of and that even the best intentions can be deadly in untrained hands.
Heather Eagar has a riveting tale to share that will enchant readers of all ages.
