God will give you blood to drink. . .An ordinary teenager finds out what witch-hunting is all about—in her own everyday world.
Deliverance “Delli” Willis, a normal, almost-sixteen-year-old, finds herself dreaming wild dreams about a girl in 1692 who is also named Deliverance. And then, to Delli’s amazement, the stuff of dreams appears in her classroom unit on the Salem Witch Trials!
Is it just a coincidence when 1692 Deliverance finds herself entranced by a mysterious man in the woods, and then Delli finds a new and mysterious neighbor walking through her family avocado grove? Or when her dreams uncover similarities between both mystery men…and more? Delli’s not sure what to believe, but she’s eager to share the handsome newcomer with her circle of friends. What she doesn’t realize is the danger of someone unique entering the closed loop.
Fingers point, jealousies surge, lies are cast, sides taken—and people are out for blood. It’s a modern-day witch-hunt that
collides with 1692 in ways Delli never dreamed.
It will take lessons from her dreamscape and a stand against bullies to tighten Delli’s faith in God and pull her through some trials of her own.

I didn't expect to like this book. However, it drew me in like a vortex in the ocean, drawing me deeper and deeper into the spiral of the story until there was no escape and the story and I were one.
Delli travels between her world of snobbish California prep school and the Salem witch trials via dreams. She and her friends are the main characters, good and bad.

Ever so slowly, Delli also comes to see the importance of herself and others standing up against the whispers and lies of others. This story is appropriate for young adults and o
Seeing the truth beyond the surface:
What a riveting story, right from the start! The story throws you right in the midst of the turmoil in Salem, Massachusetts during the famous witch trials.

The story shows us how human nature can so easily get caught up in rumors and speculation and twist the truth into something cruel and totally false. The main character, a young teen, struggles with holding on to her faith and beliefs while being pulled so strongly into the warped views of her circle of friends. This is a story of learning to stand for what you believe and learning to see beyond what the public or media want you to see. I really enjoyed this story and couldn’t put it down from the minute I starte
I had so much fun reading Anya Novikov's "The Circle Girls Once Upon A Witch". It is fast paced and kept me turning pages long into the night. It was especially fun to read it in October :).
