Book Description:

When seventeen-year-old Sarah works in the fortune-telling booth at a school carnival, she finds that sometimes she can really see the future in the crystal ball, a talent that disturbs some of the other students and makes them suspect her of being a witch.

This book has a different cover. I bought this at a library sale in Woodstock, Georgia.

This definitely reads like a YA novel (no cussing, stereotypical adults, etc) but for the most part it is an engaging plot. Sarah has been thrust into small town Missouri in her senior year of high school. Her mom moved them from California to be with a soon-to-be-divorced Ted. Sarah is set up as a fortune teller/Gypsy at the school carnival and then the creepy stuff starts. The author manages to include the Salem witch trials, reincarnation, and past life regression into the theme.

Quote I liked:

The idea behind reincarnation is that for most of us one lifetime isn't enough to learn all the spiritual lessons we're signed up for. Karma gives us a chance to retake the classes we flunk.
