The book that I am going to write about is the book Gallows Hill written by Louis Duncan.
In New Jersey is little town called Pine Crest. The people there are very Christian and nothing that is different or weird is allowed in there perfect little town. On the outside every family looks perfect but behind locked doors there is violent and cruelty. And the town sticks together if something not so perfect enters their town. That is exactly what happened to Sarah Zoltanne and her mother Rosemary.
A man named Ted Thompson, a respected teacher in Pine Crest High school, a great husband and a father left his wife for Rosemary Zoltanne so she and her daughter moved from California to Pine Crest so she could be with the man she loved. Rosemary that was so deeply in love did everything that Ted said, sure that someday they would get married, but the townsfolk do not agree. Sarah Zoltanne did not have any friends in her school. In fact the only person she knew was her stepsister to be, Kyra Thompson and they hated each other so Kyra would not help her to get to know the kids in the school. Then this boy, Eric Garret, came along. Eric was class president, really popular, really hot and Kyra’s best friend so it really surprised Sarah when Eric asked her to be a fortune teller at the Halloween Carnival. At the Carnival, Sarah starts seeing things, things that happened long time ago and things that haven’t happened yet. She sees her own future and others so kids in her school start to believe that she is a real fortune teller. Suddenly she is the most popular girl at school and everybody wants her to get their fortune told. But when Sarah starts to reveal some dirty family secrets the kids get suspicious and assume that she is a witch. And witches are not welcome in Pine Crest. In the end the kids decide to get rid of the witch and hang her like people did in the middle ages but when the noose is around Sarah’s neck she is rescued.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It...
