It’s fair to say the 1989 Danvers High School Women’s Varsity Field Hockey Team were never real competitors for the state finals. That was until The Lady Falcons conjured up a new plan for themselves seeking sorcery first practiced by young women in Danvers circa 1692. But can a secret pact, a sacred book, and a season of incantations lead them to victory?

“We Ride Upon Sticks” is author Quan Barry’s irreverent and endearing brew of '80s pop culture and small-town life. It’s her second novel and our April selection for “Bookmarked: The Under the Radar Book Club.”
