Book Description

Prudence Stewart is finally starting to get her witch on. It's been a month since her parents decided to give their magic-deficient daughter a crash course in enchantment by enrolling her in Agatha's Day School for Witches. And sure, Pru's still stuck in Magic for Dummies -- but at least she made the cheerleading squad.

Now Prudence has a bigger problem...she walks, talks, and cheers like a mortal. And she's deathly afraid the other witches will catch on. So she vows to give up her old earthly ways: no cell phone, no car, and above all, no dating mortal boys.

There's just one hitch to the sitch: Angelo, the megacute mortal-next-door. When he and Prudence meet, sparks fly -- no magic necessary. And breaking Angelo's spell turns out to be the hardest trick of all.

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6 Up—Harry Potter meets Gossip Girls in this not-so-magical sequel to The Salem Witch Tryouts (S & S, 2006). Now that Prudence has made the cheerleading squad at St. Agatha's Day School for Witches, her problems become worse. Not only does she have to prove herself to her team, but she also has to pass her remedial witch classes, all the while trying to ignore her mortal tendencies. Mix in some snooty cheerleaders; a handsome, hands-off neighbor; and the dorky boy-next-door and you have a typical story written strictly for high-maintenance teenage girls. They will probably enjoy it, despite the overabundance of clichéd references to Hollywood and plastic surgery, as well as the unsatisfying and predictable ending (which paves the way for a third installment).—Carly B.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bewitching! May 2, 2007
After discovering that her ex-best friend back in Beverly Hills moved in on the guy she was crushing on the moment she was forced to move halfway across the United States to Salem, Massachusetts, sixteen-year-old Prudence "Pru" Stewart resolved that it was time to get her witch on. Convinced that there's no place for her left in Beverly Hills, Pru takes matters into her own hands, and begins studying magic during every waking moment. But, alas, she's still stuck in remedial classes at Agatha's Day School for Witches, which is seriously cramping her style. Pru is used to being the reigning queen when it comes to everything - from schoolwork to cheerleading - but at Agatha's, Pru is stuck at the bottom of the totem pole, clawing her way to the top. Sure, she's managed to land a spot on Agatha's cheerleading squad, but even there she can't outshine her teammates, because all of their tricks are done using magic, and Pru is too reliant on gravity. Besides, being stuck in Magic for Dummies isn't helping matters. Witches in remedial classes have absolutely no chance in being named Team Captain. Which is why Pru has decided to change things up a bit. Currently, Pru is stuck in the mind-set of a mortal, which is highly frowned upon at Agatha's, where you're surrounded by all witches, all the time. Not only does Pru talk like a mortal, but she also walks and cheers like one, as well, making her an individual to avoid at all costs. Determined to shake the worries of being discovered by her fellow witches, Pru vows to do one very difficult thing: lose the earthly ways that she's been brought up with, and embrace her inner witch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too May 22, 2008
Prudence and her family have moved from sunny California to Salem, Massachusetts. When we last left Pru, she had settled into her new school, Agatha's Day School for Witches. Thankfully, she had made the school's cheerleading squad, but she is forbidden to cheer against other witch schools. Prudence had grown up unaware that her mother was a witch. With a drastic decision, her parents moved back to Salem so that Prudence and her brother could begin proper witch education to learn about their powers.

It seemed to take forever, but Prudence managed to make the team; however, until she passes her remedial magic classes, she's stuck on the sidelines. This is terribly not KEWL (Prudence's term). Prudence is DETERMINED to conquer remedial magic and get back into the normal classes. If she can accomplish that, she may just fit into her new school after all.

Her mom enlists the aid of Uncle Seamus for tutoring sessions. Also, her "sort of friend" Samuel assists in extra tutoring lessons. Prudence is determined to give up all her mortal ways to speed her education along. But her next door neighbor adds an extra glitch to the equation. Angelo is simply gorgeous. Angelo is so hot that Prudence's rival, Tara, wants to get to know him.

Trying to fit in with the rest of the girls at school, Prudence and her mother plan a Sweet Sixteen party. Trying out her newfound magic, Prudence creates magical invitations. Magical for everyone but Angelo, that is. Having mortal neighbors makes practicing her magic that much harder.

Finally achieving her goal, Prudence can now concentrate solely on her cheerleading. The coach is positive that Prudence can take them all the way to Nationals.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as book one. October 19, 2008
In book one of this series, The Salem Witch Tryouts, Prudence Stewart was moved from Beverly Hills to Salem Massachusetts. Now one month later and sure, Pru's still stuck in Magic for Dummies -- but at least she made the cheerleading squad.

Now Pru has to work even harder on becoming just like her new witch friends. Not only does she have to cram for testing out of remedial magic but she has to learn to cheer with magic while hoping no one on the team catches on that she's not up to their standards and convince the team to learn how cheer like mortals so they win the regional cheer competition. To make things worse she's just met the mortal hottie next door and whenever he's around she can't focus on anything but him.

I have to say that as much as I loved book one, I just didn't feel the same about this book. The storyline didn't have the same pull as the first one. It felt to me like this book could have been condensed into a chapter of book one without losing anything. I plan on finishing the series with book three so I hope it get's better.
