#69: What The Spell - Brittany Geragotelis

A teenage witch juggles popularity and romance while keeping her powers a secret in this spellbinding debut.
Almost-sixteen-year-old Brooklyn feels invisible, but she desperately wants to be pretty, to be popular, to be adored by a cute guy. Luckily for her, she’s a witch about to come of age—so she’s only a few spells away from making it all happen.


On her milestone birthday, Brooklyn’s conservative parents finally unbind her powers, which include the ability to magically match couples with a love spell. Brooklyn uses her special skills to get a makeover, new friends, and the attention of her crush, Asher. But the popular clique Brooklyn wants to infiltrate puts her in the same precarious position as her Salem ancestors: If she’s found out, she could be vilified—and lose Asher in the process. Can she make the most of her magic, or will she be luckless and loveless? Be careful what you witch for!

Review:
Mean Girls meets Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
Imagine being a witch and not being able to use your powers. When you finally do get to use them you will probably go a little overboard. That's exactly what Brooklyn does. All in the hopes of fitting in with the popular crowd at school. Typical teenage angst, even for a witch.
It's so much more than high school drama though. There's love in the air, and Asher is totally swoon-worthy!
This story is fun, easy-to-read, and a sure hit with all who read it! I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
