This was just awful. The characters were shallow one dimensional figures and the story was predictavle. I was disgusted by this novel's potrayal of Wicca. While I would consider myself a Christ follower, I have a great amount of respect for those who practice this faith. The book never talked about Gods or Goddesses, only statues and empty rituals that held no meaning for the character. Yes she had a Book of Shadows. Yes she tried to follow "as ye harm none do what ye will." ...Then she throws the Rule of Three out the window because a girl stole her boyfriend...she casts a spell that was basicly black magic. I was facepalming and yelling "the Rule of Three you stupid girl! 'As you harm none do what you will' actually means something!" Of course, then she becomes a "Christian" and everythings okay again! *sarcasm* In short; do not buy this book. It is offensive to people of both Christian and Wiccan beliefs.

As a proud Wiccan I am disgusted at the portrayal of my beliefs in this novel. It's like all of our effort to be accepted as normal people who just want to honor the divine is scrapped for buckets of stereotypes. I can understand the to some Christianity is the answer that helps their lives, but I do not get why not only do they refuse to accept my beliefs and run such a terrible smear campaign the always portrays us as the evil ones! Please do some research, as you will learn nothing but lies from this terrible excuse for literature.

I like to learn. And I like it when I read a book and learn new things. This book was very fascinating to read because for once I was clueless about the subject matter. Other than my Harry Potter geekness, I have no knowledge of Wicca, the Occult or magic in general. So while reading this book I managed to learn quite a bit of info that I normally wouldn't look up myself. Melody Carlson writes about subjects that teens regularly face every day. This book deals with a subject matter that many Christians will not deal with because they are uncomfortable with it. Most of the time they don't even know with what they are dealing with. This book helped me to learn so that if I ever meet up with someone who is going through what Heather did, I'll know what to do. It's a very intense book. The scene where Heather has the dream that stays into reality is super scary. It gave me chills reading it and made me want to turn the lights on in my room. What I did really appreciate is that the story is told from the POV of someone who isn't a Christan and therefore is not judgmental. Heather does have Christian friends who pray for her. While there is a mindset that condemns everything she does it is shown how this is not the best way for Christians to act. I think this story will appeal highly to teens. This book shows them the Truth but it also shows what will happen if you turn to other ways to fulfill your spiritual needs. Because of the intense subject matter in this book, I would recommend it for older teens on up. Actually I think adults should read this book too. Melody Carlson proves once again why when you think YA fiction, you think her name.

Moon White: Color Me Enchanted Melody Carlson Navpress Think, Feb 2007, $12.99 ISBN: 1576839516 Sixteen years old Heather Sinclair struggles with so many radical changes in her life. Just last summer her dad married Augustine. At the Echelon Dance Studio, newcomer Elizabeth ¿Liz¿ Sinclair competes with Heather for the lead in an upcoming ballet and makes a move on her boyfriend. However, the most powerful is the reaction of her best friend Lucy, who pontificates that witchcraft is evil so fearing for Heather¿s soul pleads with her to quit studying Wicca or she will end their friendship. Still upset with the changes going on in her life, Elizabeth, assuming all spirituality is good for the soul, explores Wicca. She regains much of her lost confidence, but the price is alienating her best friends including Lucy, who cannot abide her becoming a witch. Soon strange things occur that frighten Heather when she cannot explain the phenomena in logical terms and is unaware that the path she chose if she continues will cost Elizabeth her soul. --- MOON WHITE is an interesting ¿Color Me¿ character study that stars a troubled teen choosing a path that leads to spiritual and mundane danger for her. Some readers will be upset with the lack of tolerance towards Wicca as God¿s is inclusive whiles others will applaud Melody Carlson for condemning the religion since the bible strongly opposes witchcraft. Regardless of perspective Heather is a fascinating protagonist as she glides down a path that could have been a Christian cult as easily as Wiccan, but most critical proves destructive for her. --- Harriet Klausner

Heather Sinclair’s father remarried after the death of her mother. His new wife is vastly different from her mom; Augustine does what she wants when she wants and influences Heather to do the same. So when Heather shows interest in witchcraft, known as Wicca, it seems innocent enough, or so she thinks. After all, she’s only reading a few books to help her get in touch with her inner strength and abilities. When she starts using her “knowledge” to get her own way and bring harm to other’s lives, Heather realizes that instead of making her life more “centered”, Wicca only makes her more off kilter. When things start happening that she can’t seem to control through spells or charms, she discovers there might something, or someone, much bigger than herself out there. Heather’s friends have varied responses to her interest in Wicca, some are intrigued as well, and others cut her out of their lives. Unfortunately, the reactions of Heather’s friend Lucy are pretty typical of most Christians. Instead of loving Heather anyway, and helping her to understand that Wicca is not the way to live, she stops speaking with her. After her potential boyfriend and a lead role in the ballet The Nutcracker are threatened by a new student, Liz, Heather takes matters in her own hands, trusting in a special charm to bring bad luck to the girl. Instead of bad things happening to Liz, she only seems be getting happier, while Heather slips further into her funk. Melody Carlson points out that though witchcraft is popular with experimenting, curious teens, it doesn’t make it any less harmful. Not all things that claim to be “spiritual” are the same; in fact, there is a very dark side to Wicca. At a Wiccan retreat, Heather finds out just how scary and dangerous it can be. Heather learns that charms and spells do not work, and only cause her slip into depression. It’s only when she trusts in God to bring her peace that she can truly find the balance that her life so desperately needs.

This author's agenda was too obvious for me.  I enjoy a good Christian story when the author isn't so determined to stuff religion down my throat.  In this story, Heather's problems seemed only to get worse as she explored Wicca and then miraculously all disappeared when she discovered her own brand of Christianity.  It's a little too pat and unrealistic for me.  I was also never given the level of freedom or spending money as a teenager that Heather enjoys, but  I did feel the author did an acceptable job of creating problems for her, even if I didn't find the resolution of any of them satisfying.

Moon White is the story of an only child whose name is Heather. Heather is best friends with Lucy until Heather takes a liking to Wicca. Wicca is a type of religion based on spells and enchantments. It is sometimes called witchery. At that point, Heather¿s whole world is changed. Lucy abandons her and leaves her friendless she meets Liz, the new girl, and becomes her friend. Now will Liz help or hurt Heather? What will become of this Wicca idea? You have to read this enchanting tale to find out. This book had many good parts but also a few bad parts. When Liz moved in it was a good part because Lucy had just abandoned Heather so Heather needed a friend. Having Liz move in was also a good twist. Heather realizing that Wicca was not for her because from the beginning I felt it would hurt her and I was right. I liked when Augustine, Heather¿s stepmom, moved out because she was a bad influence on Heather. This book also had some bad parts. When the characters got mad, there was really no drama and drama would have put an even bigger twist on the story. I disliked how they had Lucy abandon Heather at the beginning. I would have liked to see how close they were and had this part happen near the middle of the book. When Heather went to the Wicca overnight, I didn¿t really understand where she was or what was going on. This book called Moon White by Melody Carlson is part of a series but the books are not connected so they can be read in any order. This book reminds me of Casper meets Wendy because Wendy¿s aunts want her to act more like a witch but she wants to be normal. This is kind of the same because they are both peer pressured by adults to look into Wicca. This book would be enjoyed by people that are into witches. This is mostly for teenagers though. Hope you enjoy!

The way Wicca is portrayed in this book I found to be offensive. It is obvious to me that the writter knows little to nothing about Wicca and is very close minded.
