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.

    Fun read!

    Apt title. This book kept me spellbound throughout. I loved the lyrical writing and world that Penelope King created. Calista was likeable and relatable from the start. My only complaint was that I wished there had been a bit more tension in some of the scenes. It was there, but Ms King could have taken things much deeper to make a richer experience. That being said, I still enjoyed my reading experience. The book was fun and light, which is a refreshing change to some of the things I have read lately. It shows what love and hope are. Great job, Ms King! I can't wait to read the next book in this series and I will definately check out the other works from this author.
