Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini
In this young adult paranormal romance, 17 year old Lily is whisked from Salem to an alternate universe in which she is a witch and her severe allergies are proof that she is a crucible, a powerful witch. She is guided by her alternate self, who goes by her full name, Lillian, and she meets Lillian's ex-mechanic (healer), a handsome young man named Rowan. Lily sets out to defy Lillian and her evil deeds and to help Rowan and the native people who he lives with who are outcasts from the thirteen walled cities in their world that keep the citizens safe from the dangerous creatures that roam the world. Rowan helps Lily to learn how to use her magical powers and the two are bound together. This is the first book in a trilogy. I look forward to reading the other two books.
