Estrella deMadrigal thought she knew herself: daughter, granddaughter, sister, dearest friend, beloved. She is Star in the Night Sky, Truth in the Darkness. But truth is rare and precious in this cruel and unforgiving century in Spain, when Jews who refused conversion to Christianity risked everything - love, life, family, faith. Then: A startling discovery shakes Estrella’s world to the core. And yet, it is something small and sweet that sets it aflame. A kiss. A kiss from someone she is forbidden to love. As a new girl emerges from the cocoon of secrets in which she has been shrouded, passion burns and friendship crumbles - and betrayal unleashes a monstrous evil from the very deepest part of the earth. Estrella crosses over to a place she never thought she could be; she is someone she never could have imagined. Remember the story she is about to tell you.

About the Author:

Alice Hoffman is the bestselling author of nearly twenty acclaimed novels beloved by teens and adults, including Aquamarine and Practical Magic, both made into major motion pictures, as well as The Foretelling, Green Angel, The Ice Queen, and Here on Earth (an Oprah Book Club selection). She has also written the highly praised story collections Local Girls and Blackbird House. The author lives outside of Boston.

From AudioFile:

INCANTATION is Hoffman's fifth novel aimed at the young adult audience. As always, Hoffman takes chances with her story. Here, her attempt to explore the Spanish Inquisition and its witch hunts within the context of a 16-year-old's crush on her best friend's cousin would seem to present insurmountable odds. Unfortunately, Jenna Lamia's saccharine voice, which would be more appropriate for reading a fairy tale, presents an even more significant obstacle. She also reads rapidly, as if racing to get to the end. Her tone deepens a bit as disastrous events unfold, but the upbeat peppiness with which her narration begins prevails in the listener's mind.
