A Kind of Spark

Ever since Ms. Murphy told us about the witch trials that happened centuries ago right here in Juniper, I can’t stop thinking about them. Those people weren’t magic. They were like me. Different like me.

I’m autistic. I see things that others do not. I hear sounds that they can ignore. And sometimes I feel things all at once. I think about the witches, with no one to speak for them. Not everyone in our small town understands. But if I keep trying, maybe someone will. I won’t let the witches be forgotten. Because there is more to their story. Just like there is more to mine.

Award-winning and neurodivergent author Elle McNicoll delivers an insightful and stirring debut about the European witch trials and a girl who refuses to relent in the fight for what she knows is right in this book perfect for readers of Song for a Whale and Counting by 7s.

Description

"The author, herself neurodivergent, imbues Addie’s unapologetically autistic perspective with compassion and insight. Addie’s accounts of constantly second-guessing herself ring painfully true, and her observations are diamond sharp; she scrutinizes people’s faces to ensure they’re 'never confused or offended' but wonders, 'Are any of them ever doing the same for me?' The bullying Addie endures will leave readers’ stomachs in sympathetic knots, but Addie’s nuanced relationships with her sisters and a new friend, Audrey, infuse humor and heart." — Kirkus Reviews
