ItÃ¢ÂÂs senior year, and St. JoanÃ¢ÂÂs Academy is a pressure cooker. Grades, college applications, boysÃ¢ÂÂ texts: Through it all, Colleen Rowley and her friends keep it together. Until the schoolÃ¢ÂÂs queen bee suddenly falls into uncontrollable tics in the middle of class.
The mystery illness spreads to the school's popular clique, then more students and symptoms follow: seizures, hair loss, violent coughing fits. St. JoanÃ¢ÂÂs buzzes with rumor; rumor erupts into full-blown panic.
Everyone scrambles to find something, or someone, to blame. Pollution? Stress? Are the girls faking? Only ColleenÃ¢ÂÂwhoÃ¢ÂÂs been reading The Crucible for extra creditÃ¢ÂÂcomes to realize what nobody else has: Danvers was once Salem Village, where another group of girls suffered from a similarly bizarre epidemic three centuries agoÃÂ .ÃÂ .ÃÂ .
Inspired by true eventsÃ¢ÂÂfrom seventeenth-century colonial life to the halls of a modern-day high schoolÃ¢ÂÂConversion casts a spell.

"A chilling guessing game . . . that will leave readers thinking about the power (and powerlessness) of young women in the past and present alike."Ã¢ÂÂPublishers Weekly, Starred Review
