Summary: The year is 1915 when sixteen-year-old Eliza Williams arrives at the Billings School for Girls in Easton, Connecticut. Her parents expect her to learn the qualites of a graceful, dutiful wife. But Eliza and her housemates have a dangerous secret: They're witches. After finding a dusty, leather bound spell book, the Billings Girls form a secret coven. Bonded in sisterhood, they cast spells--cursing their headmistress with laryngitis, brewing potions to bolster their courage before dances, and conjuring beautiful dresses out of old rags. The girls taste freedom and power for the first time, but what starts out as innocent fun turns sinister when one of the spells has an unexpected-and deadly-consequence. Magic could bring Eliza everything she's ever wanted...but it could also destroy everything she holds dear.

Review:
I'm not a big fan of story's from "back in the day". But this book was...Amazing. I don't know if I have real words for this book so it will be cut short. But I loved it, it was amazing. Kate Brian doesn't normally write paranormal books but from what I can tell she could if she wanted to. Although the end was confusing on who got the guy it was. Amazing, zombielious, and fast paced!
