The Secret Circle: The Initiation and The Captive Part I
"I liked this three book series when it was first published. It was really good and the characters weren't all alcoholics and self centered kids like the show made them. Now I don't know if the author is using the show to sell more books, but if he keeps writing the characters like WGN they'll turn into a bunch of alcoholics. Take an AA section writers before you make these kids worse."
