Trial by Fire (The Worldwalker Trilogy #1)

by Josephine Angelini (Goodreads Author)

This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying experiences that others in her hometown of Salem take for granted, which is why she is determined to enjoy her first high school party with her best friend and longtime crush, Tristan. But after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class, Lily wishes she could just disappear.

Suddenly, Lily is in a different Salem—one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruelest of them all is Lillian . . . Lily’s other self in this alternate universe.

 What makes Lily weak at home is what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. In this confusing world, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can’t hope to shoulder alone and a love she never expected.

Quote 1:

“Sorry about today,” he said sincerely.  “I didn’t mean to drag you into it.”
“That was some slap.  How’s your face?”
He sighed dramatically.  “Unfortunately, the nurse said that slap was loaded with cooties.”
Lily sucked in a pained breath.  “Cooties.  You know what that means?”
“They’ll have to amputate.”
“Girls across the tri-state area will be inconsolable.  A national day of mourning is sure to follow.”
He smiled at her lazily, his mouth inches away, eyes locked with hers.  Lily desperately wanted to forget the whole thing and kiss his cootie-infested face, but something held her back.

Quote 2:

She was on the floor, her fever eating her up inside, and then it all shifted.
She saw herself lying there, teeth clacking together, spine bowing and arching as her muscles pulled her bones and joints to their limits.  She hovered there, above herself, watching her body tear itself apart.  Then–she didn’t hear a girl’s voice, not exactly.  It was fainter than that, like it was coming from far away, and the words were being placed inside her head.
You are sick in this world.
Lily wondered if she was talking to herself.
Come to me and be the most powerful person in the world.
But … I don’t want to go, Lily thought.  The faint voice went away,
and Lily fell back into her body.
