9780099568537: The Circle (Engelsfors Trilogy)

Only together can they survive.
 
Engelsfors. A beautiful name for a scrubby little town in Sweden where six girls have just started high school. They have nothing in common -- except they are all hunted by an ancient evil.
 
The autumn semester has just started when a student is found dead in one of the school toilet cubicles. Everyone suspects suicide. Everyone except those that know the truth. One night, when a mysterious red moon fills the sky, the girls meet in the park. They don't know why or how they were brought there but they learn that they need each other in order to survive.
 
They are told that they are witches. An ancient prophecy states that they are The Chosen Ones. From this day on, high school is a matter of life and death. They must learn how to work together despite their differences and they have to master the forces that have awakened within them. Time is running out. Something is hunting them and if they don't find it and defeat it, it will kill them.

About the Author:

SARA B. ELFGREN started her career in the film industry as a screenwriter. As a script doctor, she has been involved in several Swedish film and TV-productions. She has a Master's Degree in Film Studies. In 2008, Sara B. Elfgren met Mats Strandberg. They quickly realized that they shared a passion for supernatural stories about young adults. Soon the idea to write together was born. In August 2009 they began working on what would become the novel The Circle with its two sequels.
 
MATS STRANDBERG is journalist and a regular columnist for Sweden's biggest evening newspaper Aftonbladet. The organization Sveriges Tidskrifter (Sweden's Newspapers and Magazines) awarded him the title Columnist of the Year in 2004.

From Booklist:

In this first installment in the Engelsfors Trilogy, a small Swedish town has a big magic problem. It has become the seat of some spooky paranormal activity, namely a series of suspicious student suicides. Thankfully, the Chosen One has been summoned; only there’s not one but six teenage girls imbued with magical abilities. Minoo, Vanessa, Rebecka, Anna-Karin, Ida, and Linnea rarely get along, but like it or not, they have to work together to hone their newfound magical abilities and defeat the shadowy figure who stalks them in the night. If that weren’t a big enough problem, the girls also struggle with usual high-school troubles—eating disorders, absent parents, drug and alcohol abuse, bullying—which, at times, overshadow the looming presence of evil. The Scandinavian setting provides a chilly atmosphere to an otherwise dark story of struggling teens and a rash of suicides, but the multilayered, cinematic plot is buoyed by the girls’ determination, as well as the understated and idiosyncratic presence of magic. Grades 9-12. --Sarah Hunter
