Liza is sinking in a bubbling cauldron of middle school rumors. When the entire eighth grade begins studying the Salem witch trials, it seems everyone is on a witch hunt...with Liza as target number one. Worst of all, her ex-best friend is the one who started a rumor that Liza bewitched a boy with a love potion.
As the bullying intensifies, Liza's loneliness grows. More than ever, she wishes her mother were still alive. A glimmer of hope arrives when Liza finds her mother's diary...until she actually reads it. Turns out Liza's family connection to witches goes back for centuries. So much for the witch stuff being rumors!
If Liza can channel her inner witch at the Halloween night corn maze, she might find the strength to stand up for herself. If not, she risks losing a piece of herself to a growing depression and any hope of happiness.
