Witch Week product reviews

SOMEONE IN THIS CLASS IS A WITCH When the note, written in ordinary ballpoint, turns up in the homework books Mr Crossley is marking, he is very upset. For this is Larwood House, a school for witch-orphans, where witchcraft is utterly forbidden. And yet magic keeps breaking out all over the place - like measles! The last thing they need is a visit from the Divisional Inquisitor. If only Chrestomanci could come and sort out all the trouble.

This is a world where magic is NOT allowed and if you are found out to be a witch then you can expect the end result to be similar to that of our Salem witch hunts, trials etc. and a boarding school in alternate England has just had a note given to the teacher saying that there is a witch in the class. This is a much darker book than the others in the series but the characters are so faultily human, they are petty, unkind, turn on each other and turn each other in, the fun in this book doesn't really turn up until near the end when Chrestomanci appears to try and fix things.

I'm not too sure what it says about the book itself, but I was given this in 2002 and read it along with the other four books from this series that I was given, a few years later I borrowed this book (different cover) from the library and read 90% of the way through the book before I finally clicked that I had read it before, though I was so absorbed in the book that it didn't matter in the end. While this is the darker of the books it does give an idea of how people may have felt when going through such things in our own history, so a good read and a good addition to the series.
