Mrs. Highsmith: A witch who is/was friends with Whit's and Wisty's parents.
“"There will come a time in your lives, Whitford and wisteria, when you have to make your own decisions, when you have to go your own way, when you have to disobey the injunctions of your parents." she peers into our faces, eyes brights."i'm thrilled you understand that that time is now."”
“"The gift is certainly not used to be god. only to prevent others from trying to be god."”
“"Well, yes,and that you shouldn't fear the dead," she says, looking a my brother eerily." The dead, like all of us, have...limitations."”
“She turns to me. "And, Wisteria, you would do well to remember that wits, courage, and compassion are the keys to survival."Her eyes sweep the room sparkling."And music."”
“"Tell me, Wisteria, do you remember anything, anything at all, from your biology 101 class? How about physics? Chemistry? no? i should have expected as much from a truant."”
“Mrs.H. nods and holds my face in her hands, and i feel like i'm five years old. "But what he doesn't have is your fire, Wisty, your energy, your electricity. he may control the earth, but he doesn't control the people on it. At least not in their thoughts. not yet. but if what The One believes is true, if your powers extend to the electrical impulses of the brain, he'll use you to control not only the government of the Overworld but the actual minds of all humanity, in every direction."”
