Witch Week is a book in the Chrestomanci series.


The story is set in Larwood House, a boarding school in a world where magic is illegal and those who use it are burned at the stake and which is ruled by an Inquisition. A group of students find a note reading "Someone in this class is a witch" and, with Chrestomanci's help, they defeat the Inquisitor.
