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.
This is the story of a teenage girl who begins having vivid dreams of the Salem witch trials. Coincidentally, she is studying that very topic in school. The dreams parallel her life as the names of the people in her dreams are the same, or very similar to her own name and the names of the people in her life. As the dreams progress her fear of her own destiny becomes nearly overwhelming. In her dreams is an elusive young man who claims he will protect her from harm, and in reality a young man who recently moved into her neighborhood gives her some peace of mind regarding her fears. As the story unfolds events in her life become extremely complicated. She no longer trusts her closest friends. Will she find the solace she needs to cope with the dreams and her own dilemmas?
This is a book written for young adults, and is well written with descriptive elements regarding events and the locale, both regarding the dreams and this teen's surroundings. I had a bit of difficulty getting involv
I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the book "Circle Girls".
Although parts of it were disturbing to me and made me very angry at the nastiness of Abby and also with other's at the school who followed along with her. I was pleased that Deliverance, both in old and new times was able to get even past her wishy-washy ideas of prejudice and doubts, to come to a good conclusion in the end.
I also found the ending quite fun and a little bit spooky, which is kind of how the book was all the way through.
All in all it was a great story and a MUST read in my opinion. It had a lot of heart and soul and redemptive qualities to it. You should give it a try!!!

Wow, what a story. Dreaming of the Salem Witch trials and studying them in school at the same time. Kind of a spooky read but gives a different, more personal kind of diary read about a horrific time in our history. A good book which I recommend to those who are interested in the Salem Witch trials.
