KLIATTThis book perfectly describes an alienated teenager in the hostile environment of high school. There are cliques everywhere and Vickie Marotti, known as Vick, does not fit into any of the groups. So from having moved around a lot, she has devised a personality that works for her. Vick becomes a special outcast. She is a feared witch with special powers. By using magic tricks, she portrays herself as someone to be feared. She attracts a small following that appears to worship her, and she in turn protects them from all the misfortunes of the world. Vick's act is running smoothly along until a new boy comes and recognizes her talents. He's a cute and popular upperclassman and respects her skills. It's an old story, of teenagers mistreating their fellow students and everyone trying to peacefully co-exist in a threatening environment. This tale is perfect for library shelves.
