‘An atmospheric, disturbing, even scary tale that touches on otherworldliness’ THE TIMES ‘Too-cool-for-school teenage girls, an outsider welcomed into their fold, and murder…a guaranteed good read’ STYLIST ‘Witchcraft, murder, and adolescent passion’ HEAT IT’S 1997. VIOLET IS A NEW STUDENT AT ELM HOLLOW ACADEMY AND DESPERATE TO FIT IN. Quiet, artistic, unremarkable. When invited to an advanced study group by her alluring art teacher, Annabel, she is at once terrified and delighted. There she meets Robin, Grace, and Alex: charismatic outsiders who invite her into their clique. But once the study sessions on the school’s history of seventeenth-century witchcraft and magic become more than just theory, Violet must decide what she’s prepared to do in order to stay popular. And maybe she’ll solve the mystery of what happened to a former member of their group. The one who went missing.
