Filled with horror and torture, the Salem Witch Trials were very dark and terrible. Many young girls accused people witchcraft and soon after the accused were killed, even if they were innocent. This graphic novel tells the story of Ann Putnam, a main accuser, years after the Salem Witch Trials. Ann Putnam describes the full truth of the Salem Witch Trials in detail, including her many regrets.

Opinion: 

Lies in the Dust is an incredibly interesting book. Once a person becomes very mature I believe that they should read this book because it is good to be well-rounded and hear about everything in the world, even if it is horrifying and cruel. This book was also very interesting because it was a graphic novel. I enjoy reading graphic novels, but this one stands out because it is not cheerful and bubbly. Lies in the Dust is dark and wicked. To conclude, Lies in the Dust is a very unique book and I recommend it to any mature audience.
