Summary: (Amazon)
Sisters are born, not chosen. . .

Maddie Crane is grappling with the disappearance of Cordelia LeClaire, and trying to escape the grasp of The Sisters of Misery--an insidious clique of the school's most powerful girls, whose pranks have set off a chain of horrific events, and who have Maddie in their sights-
Beware the sister betrayed. . .

Now in a prestigious boarding school far away from her mysterious hometown of Hawthorne, Massachusetts, Maddie feels free from danger. But when an unmarked envelope arrives at her dorm containing a single ominous tarot card, Maddie realizes with terror that some secrets won't stay buried. Knowing she must return to Hawthorne--a town still scarred by the evil of the Salem witch trials--Maddie prepares to face the fears of her past. . .and the wrath of the sister she wronged.

My Thoughts: I thought that this novel was incredibly well written. The suspense kept me going through the whole thing; I felt that it was written in a way that even those occasional book readers could love it. I think anyone who has read the first book should go buy a copy now!!!

Random Quote: *opening book to random page* It opens on page 151. *Touching random spot*.
For a moment, Maddie could almost feel the tender touch of Tess as she led her out of the store last year.

Second Helpings:
Mrs. Magoo gave it an A. See her wonderful review!
The Book Muncher gave it a 4.25. Here fantastic review:

I think you should tell your sister that your book reviewing site is VERY cool. Keep up the good work and don't ever let anyone get you down.

(I would say this even if you hadn't given my book such a glowing review--but thanks for that--I REALLY appreciate it). Honestly, with book coverage shrinking in the media, it is up to book bloggers to keep people informed about books. What you are doing is very important and is very much appreciated by ALL the authors you write about....seriously!!) :)
