How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather

Salem, Massachusetts is the site of the infamous witch trials and the new home of sixteen-year old Samantha Mather. Recently transplanted from New York City, Sam is not exactly welcomed with open arms. She is a descendant of Cotton Mather, one of the men responsible for those Trials--and almost immediately she becomes the enemy of a group of girls who call themselves The Descendants. And guess who their ancestors were?

As if dealing with that wasn't enough, Sam finds herself face to face with a real, live (well, technically dead) ghost. A handsome, angry ghost who wants Sam to stop touching his stuff.

Soon Sam discovers she is at the center of a centuries-old curse affecting everyone with ties to the Trials. Sam must come to terms with the ghost and work with The Descendants to stop a deadly cycle that has been going on since the first alleged witch was hanged. If any town should have learned its lesson, it's Salem. But history may be about to repeat itself.
