Each sister has unique paranormal abilities that range from shifting, control of lightening, telekinesis and healing, and metal manipulation. The girls want to live a quite life but if threatened become a united front to protect each other. Celia is the oldest sister and the voice of the series (so far anyway).
The Weird Girls is a quick read but it’s chock full of action and humor. The story sucks you right in and before you know it, it's over leaving you wondering what's going to happen next to this extraordinary family. The Weird Girls is a terrific introductory novella to Cecy Robson's Weird Girls. I can't wait to find out more Celia and the rest of the girls. Fortunately, Sealed With A Curse, Book #1 was released on December 31, 2012.

Wonderful start to bring you into a new magic filled world with four sisters stuck in it.
The four sisters are celebrating finally finding a place to call home since leaving New Jersey two years ago. Such a place found in Lake Tahoe. Somehow trouble and men find the girls, yet Celia is feared at a glance as human's realize instinctively there's a predator inside, with fighting and upsetting one witch by breaking her power talisman. After a phone call Celia makes to her paranormal expert friend, she learns with one witch comes a whole coven, now with their eyes out waiting for them to show in the new home area they thought would be safe. When the witches come, Celia makes a claim and fights for her sisters against the leader of the coven. Celia will have three challenges to face for her and her sisters to stay safe in their home. As long as Celia can win, but at what costs?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
We learn what each girl's abilities are, as a result of a backfired curse on their mother. Boy do we learn about these four ladies! The history details here with each and their parents, and their abilities. I wonder how much of this will come to surface again in the first novel. That the world, knowing or unknowingly senses it, doesn't accept weird and Celia, Taran, Shayna, and Emme are just that. Weird. Something that doesn't exist even in the supernatural world of vampires, werewolves, and witches. Great setting of the characters here.
Right off the bat we start with a fight with a witch. We see weaknesses in each girl, but they can work together to win. As the story goes we see the strengths as well, and that they avoid the supernatural world as much as they can. These four sister stick together and stand up for each other, protect and fight for each other. They are all they have. We learn how they suffered and fought through school and how people, magical or not, sense they are different and fight or torment them, or at least try too.
This novella sets the stage for these ladies as a whole and individually. They come out kicking and swinging.
This novella is from Celia's point of view. Celia is the eldest and is the one that goes through an ordeal with the three challenges to try and save her sisters. There are quick sarcastic snarky remarks through the read. It gives a feel of Celia's personality, strong and has a sense of humor that's dry and could be negative but I like this humor. Celia's not all roses, she does have a tigeress inside after all, and I like that about her. Being that they stay out of the supernatural world as much as possible, they don't know what to expect or do with the three challenges. These ladies might be a product of the magical world, but they avoid it or at least try to.
There are hints of things here that I do hope and look forward to learning more about. Like Celia and her dream man. Sounds like there is more there than she or I know. I would like to learn more! There are things hinted at with each lady that I'd like to see more about.
Veeeery good novella to give you a feel of these weird ladies, where they came from and what they are capable of. I do look forward to seeing more of this in the novels to come.
