This is my first ever teen fantasy/young adult paranormal romance novel.While I was skeptical at first to read something outside of my particular norm, I found that once I got past the first few pages, I was interested.

Here's the story of teen Calista moving to a new town in a new state with her dad so that they can basically start over. Living in the guest house of a mysterious, yet friendly, woman, she figures out really fast that her life is about to change drastically. The good news is that she finally figures out why she is so different from everyone else. And not just different in the sense that all girls feel while during the crazy teen years, but different as in "I'm a witch and have crazy special powers." different.

So if that's not enough, she still has to deal with starting a new school complete with mean girls, a boy who really wants to be her boyfriend, and a guy she met once on the beach but can't get out of her mind and meets in her dreams every night.

I found the story to be believable yet just enough fantasy/paranormalish that I wanted to continue reading. Penelope King kept the story moving quickly while also revealing the important details at the correct moments. When I got to the climatic point, I was so completely hooked that I was almost disappointed in the way it ended.

    4.5 stars

    I wish I could give half stars, but since we can't I had to go with four. Don't get me wrong. This book was VERY good. and I will difinately be reading the next one. To me it just seemed like the ending came rather abrubt.I didn't ant it to end!But thankfully the story picks up in the next one judging from the except. I liked the character of Calista and her two friends. In a way it sort of reminded me of the TV show "Charmed" one of my favorite shows ever.

    Enjoyable reading

    This was no masterpiece, but was enjoyable nonetheless. As an aspiring writer myself I would be proud to share it but would not consider it my opus. I recommend this because the story is great, the characters are memorable, and I enjoyed the writing style. In all fairness, I suspect I would have appreciated this more if I were still a teenager (as opposed to a mom of a teenager)!
