Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-This guide begins with a substantial section on the history of paganism and witchcraft, but there is little mention of the torture and killing of witches throughout history. Commonalities with and contrasts between Wicca and 11 other religions are included. The bulk of the work deals with rituals, tools, principles, devotions, holidays, celebrations, and (positive) spells. Self-discovery and self-expression are encouraged throughout. Potential teenage witches are urged to introduce family and friends to their beliefs gently and gradually. They are reminded to respect house rules such as not lighting candles if this is not allowed by parents. Some of the practices mentioned, such as jumping and yelling into the wind during a lively storm and leaving bowls of water on the windowsill to gather moon rays, might cause parental concern. However, discretion and respect for others are mentioned frequently as are safety precautions. Basic meditation techniques are described, as are a few techniques of divination. Advice, elucidation of the text, and personal experiences from four teenage Wiccans, ages 13 to 17, appear in shaded boxes. Ink drawings are informative, but scant. Web sites and contact information for organizations such as the ACLU and "The Witches League for Public Awareness" are included in relevant chapters; more sites and lists of "correspondences" for "magickal" connections are appended.-Ann G.

    more from this reviewer

    One of the best books on the subject!

    I highly recommend this book to all, both teens and adults, beginners and seasoned witches, even those simply interested in the subject but who have no intention of adopting wicca as a religion. The book is PACKED with info, and has an amazing selection of spells, rituals, and recipes. The author even includes ways to bridge the gap between wicca and school, and includes a letter to parents that was literally a life saver when I came out of "the broom-closet". This is the book I hand to my friends and family when they have questions on the Craft, and it is required reading for everyone in my coven because of how informative it is. But the greatest part of this book is that, despite how much info it contains, it's written in an enjoyable and entertaining voice. I've reread the book several times, and each time I do, I find yet another sparkling gem of practical information. If you were to only read one book on wicca and witchcraft in you lifetime, make this that book!

    Amazing!!

    This was my second book I picked up about Wicca (except for library books) and was I ever grateful I bought it!! Lauren Manoy (the author) absolutely stuffed this book with lots and lots of information -- history, recipes, spells, tips, rituals, holidays, and some chapters on teen rights and coming out of the 'broom closet'. The result is a rich, very fun and in-depth book, and one of my favourite books on Witchcraft by far!

    Excellent Beginnier

    I loved this book. There is a lot of history in the firs four chapters. However this is very important and cool to learn about. She also goes into learing about devotions that Teens are able to learn and do because of the way their household is run. She also gives several ways to meditate which is great for those who do not lern mainstream. Learing how to cast a circl works perfectly well too. She gives once again several reasons and different ways to cast the circle. This book also has coven and life idea ways to take your wiccan ideas into the real world. My group of friends actualy stated and we all are feeling more attunted with the earth. She also gives ideas on how soliatry's run their sabbaths. The spells are a little diffictult to do becuause you need ceritn oils. This book has inspirted me a lot. This book remeinds me of Teen Witch only more in depth and more informative, I am not knocking Silver becuase I enjoy her books, however Where to Park your Broomstick should be more of the second book you buy.

    Great Book!

    I absolutely love this book! It is in-depth, and it is a perfect book for anyone even remotely interested, and great for beginners. The author gives a brief but informative history of Witchcraft through the ages of Man, and explores different paths of Wicca. She has alternatives for those whose parents don't approve and/or are still "in the broom closet". This book has exercises to help you become familiar with the craft, and practical advice. Feel free to e-mail me. I'm always open to talk with other teen Witches.

    Fabulous Guide to Exploring the Craft!

    This book lives up to be everything and more that one would expect from the title! It is a very down-to-earth, creative approach to exploring the craft. Manoy explains many aspects of the craft as well as methods of worship or obtaining divinity and my favorite, the section on easy to follow recipes and spells! I encourage anyone who is interested in gaining more knowledge on the topic and is not quite sure where to begin to venture into Manoy's book; It will take the reader on a fascinating journey from the ancient roots of the craft to the endless facets that the craft has to offer. This book certainly has helped me to discover truth, knowledge, and wisdom as I travel into dimensions of my life that I never knew existed.
