This was a pretty good book; exactly what I would expect from a young adult novel. A girl stuck between two guys, a supernatural angle, a girl who is not so secure in her own skin but is described as the prettiest girl in school etc. The first half of this book is an introduction to the characters and a description of Alexandia's life in Hazel Cove (an apt name for the setting of a witch book). Despite this less than stellar beginning, the book ended rather well and I don't mind saying that I want to read the next book. While it is possible I might regret paying the $2.99 for the sequel, my guess is that her next book will be better than her first.
