Winner of the Blue Peter Book Awards 2021, Best Story | Shortlisted for the 2021 Branford Boase Award

When 11 year old Addie, who is autistic, learns about the 16th century women who were persecuted for witchcraft, she starts to lobby for a local memorial in her small Scottish village. With the help of a new girl at school, she fights valiantly against injustice and oppression.

The Branford Boase Award Judges said: ‘Phenomenal’; ‘I loved it’; ‘brings a brand new voice into children’s books’; ‘deals with ideas of difference without being heavy handed’.
