Afflicted: Daughters of Salem by Laurie Brooks

In 1691 Puritan New England, fear and superstition were rampant. Singing, dancing and amusement of any kind were forbidden. The devil was everywhere. Five girls coming of age in Salem Village find an ally in enslaved Tituba. Deep in the woods, the girls make a pact and build a sisterhood. Alliances are formed, promises made and broken, and power taken. Afflicted: Daughters of Salem tells the story of the Salem accusers and the events that led up to the infamous Salem witch trials. This origin story examines how these teenage girls became accusers and caused 20 people to be put to death for witching.
