Mean Girls meets 80's film Teen Witch easily describes What the Spell. While it's aimed at a younger audience than myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the hi-jinx and Brooklyn's obsession with popularity all the while learning to master her new found witching abilities.
Asher is the epitome what every girl's first love should be. He noticed Brooklyn BTM (before the makeover) and truly cares for her as she is, magic or no magic. My only irks with the story comes in the form of the Elite. We all know girls who'd step on whatever and whomever they have to to obtain what they desire, but Brooklyn was so blind to their intentions. Luckily she wised up, but only after disastrous consequences. I can't wait for book two!
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!
