Conversion, by Katherine HoweRead about another entry on the list.
Colleen is working hard to graduate as valedictorian of her competitive Catholic girls’ school when several of the students begin exhibiting strange symptoms—like seizures and vomiting pins—of a mysterious, seemingly contagious illness. Colleen, working on a project about the witch trials in her hometown in the seventeenth century, thinks there may be a connection between the two. This story is dark and thought-provoking and utterly absorbing.
