On the other side is the struggle to become an adult and control those same emotions. Sounds like the author did a good job. Thanks for the review.

I agree!
Thank you!

I am so glad that this book wasn't the case for you. I love fantasies and young adult reads, so this might be a read for me. Congratulations to the author for receiving a glowing review!


Yeah, that makes me want to read this book, too! I like books that keep a fast pace!

Thank you do much for this detailed review. This book is exactly the kind of book I love to read. Magic and witches are one of my favorite subject matters to read on. A coming of age YA book being second in favorites this sounds to combine both those elements into a great read. I am adding this book to my shelf and heading to buy it !
