I knew just by looking at the cute cover design that I'd like this book.
It was really cute and I hope to see this turn into a series or have a sequel.
At first, the protagonist came across as spoiled and unlikable, but then the plot took over and her personality improved. She finds herself at the heart of a group of practicing witches. With enjoyable overtones of teen movies, she falls for the cool bad-boy hunk who smokes clove cigarettes, while a sweet geek pines from the sidelines.
The story ends with an exciting twist. Overall, this is a fluffy, entertaining read.
While this was a light-hearted read, it was a bit too predictable for me. I knew who the evil witch was pretty early in the novel. I also found that Sophie was not a character with whom I felt a connection. I have no interest in a sequel unless I have nothing else to read. It was an OK story, but the authors could have spent a little more time developing the characters to truly draw the reader in. If I had the choice, I would have given this 3.5 stars. But, it definitely was not a 4-star read.
Not only have her parents decided to move across the country, but they're heading to the hometown of her father, Mythic, Massachusetts, a popular destination spot for horror fanatics.
She has no desire to be away from Los Angeles and couldn't be less interested in her parents' and the town's horror obsession.
However, she's about to change her mind. Sophie soon meets a group of girls who have the power to create anything their hearts desire. And they recognize the same characteristics in Sophie. Before long, they realize they must combat the evil witch who's creating the freak storms in town.
If you're interested in witchcraft, don't miss this one!

This story has a little bit of everything. Good witches, bad witch, spells, good friends and wonderful characters you will not forget.
I would love to read more books by these two authors.
This was my first Young Adult read and it won't be my last. Emily Gould & Zareen Jaffery got me wanting to read more YA and more books by them. I look forward to more books by these authors.
