Description of the Book:
There’s more than one way to be powerful . . .
It is during a routine school project that Abby Silva–sixteen and nearly friendless–makes a startling discovery: She is descended from women who were accused of witchcraft back in 1600s Salem. And when Abby visits nearby Salem, strange, inexplicable events start to unfold. Objects move when she wills them to. Candles burst into sudden flame. And an ancient spellbook somehow winds up in her possession.
Trying to harness her newfound power, Abby concocts a love potion to win over her longtime crush–and exact revenge upon his cruel, bullying girlfriend. But old magic is not to be trifled with. Soon, Abby is thrust headlong into a world of hexes, secrets, and danger. And then there’s Rem Anders, the beautiful, mysterious Salem boy who seems to know more about Abby than he first lets on.
A reckoning is coming, and Abby will have to make sense of her history–and her heart–before she can face the powerful truth.
Pre-Read: I must admit im curious not sure if im going to like it though we shall see…….
- It’s ok so far… I’m not sure how I feel yet
- it’s getting better but I don’t think its something I would read again
- ok so it is good I admit im getting curious slowly
- I am Team Rem I mean he actually sees her even when she felt invisible
- I think this would make a great series with a little more development
- Ok that was not what I expected
Overall Thoughts: Well first let me say it wasn’t mind-blowing awesome but it was good. It’s not something i would read again. It was an ok read. It took sometime to get through the story. It doesn’t really catch your interest in the beginning it took me about a quarter of the book to actually get into it. this is a great book for a younger reader that is in to paranormal fiction. I wouldn’t recommend it for a more advanced reader. It’s a great book for a elementary school student.
