However, it's more about discovery. In the process of breaking the curse, Dodie is discovering who she is and her place in the world amidst friends and family as well as discovering love.
Dodie had her life turned upside down 30 days before her 16th birthday. When she found out her grandmother
was alive she also learned she would be the next target of a 300 year old curse unless something changed and it
was broken before she dies. When a Young warlock comes into the picture to help she falls head over heals for
him and while he's there trying to save her Leoplod falls for her too.
With an evil force doing everything it can to claim her life will they find a way to break the curse before it's too
Dodie is young and trying to find herself. With an older brother and friends who's personalities overpower her
she hasn't gotten that chance yet. When she finds out about her family's curse she also begins to find out who she
and throughout the story we see her come out of her shell. I loved seeing how she went from shy and
reserved to outgoing and not allowing anyone to tell her what she can and can't do.
Leopold is a bit odd at the beginning, but as times goes on you see his personality come out and find out why he
is the way he is. I enjoyed watching as Dodie helped him find his inner kid and how he become more
comfortable in his own skin as the got to know each other.
This was a quick and easy read that gives you a taste of the paranormally cursed Dodie Jenks. It had a lot of action packed into a month's worth of time: a seer and a warlock, a first love, a first kiss, a girl's coming of age, and a sweet sixteen party. This YA read delivers a solid mystery and I'm still holding my breath waiting for answers.
Dodie is an average girl until her family reveals that she's destined to die at 16. Turns out, a distant relative did something curse-worthy and she's got to suffer the consequences. In an effort to escape the curse, they hire Leopold, a warlock, and move Dodie out to love with her previously estranged grandmother. Of course, Leopold is hot and around the same age as Dodie, so as with all teenage girls, a crush immediately develops. The rest of the characters (and even Leopold) I couldn't really get a good impression from. We are forced to spend the majority of the book trying to figure out who the "bad guy" is that is still holding onto the curse. Even at the end of the book, I'm not quite sure who the good and bad players are in all this (cliffhangers abound!).
The awkward and adorable romance between Leopold and Dodie were really what made the book a joy to read. I want to see more of their teenage love affair, and hope there is more to be had in book two. The world was so rich with characters that I can easily see this series continuing on for more than a few books. I hope we get some solid answers soon, though!
