“Conversion” is about a senior in high school named Colleen. As everyone around her mysteriously falls ill, she has to balance decisions, schoolwork, and friendship. Something that really surprised me was that part of the book takes place during the Salem Witch Trials, and the other half modern day Boston. Throughout the book, the two settings connect and reveal truly fascinating story.

 

First off, seniors in high school will act like adults and discuss things that are not appropriate for all ages and using language that is not suitable for younger audiences. If books had ratings like movies, without a doubt this would be PG-13.

 

That being said, it was a really great book. My only complaint is some parts were a little boring. For example, the book would leave you hanging at the end of a chapter, and then switch settings and be on a totally new subject.
 

 

All in all, I really enjoyed “Conversion” By Katherine Howe. I would give it a four out of five. I would definitely recommend it to anyone 13 or older. So for all of you teens, add this book to your “books to read” list.
