*Winner of IAN 2015's Outstanding Fantasy Book*
Never underestimate the power of a determined witch.
Letum Wood is a forest of fog and deadfall, home to the quietly famous Miss Mabel's School for Girls, a place where young witches learn the art of magic.
Sixteen-year-old Bianca Monroe has inherited a deadly curse. Determined to break free before it kills her, she enrolls in the respected school to confront the cunning witch who cast the curse: Miss Mabel.
Bianca finds herself faced with dark magic she didn't expect, with lessons more dangerous than she could have ever imagined. Will Bianca have the courage to save herself from the curse, or will Miss Mabel's sinister plan be too powerful?
Miss Mabel's School for Girls is the first novel in The Network Series, an exciting new fantasy collection. A gripping tale about the struggle to survive, it will take you to a new place and time, one you'll never want to leave.

I couldn't put this book down. I would read until the page blurred. Very good writing. Loved all the characters, even the main evil one. Have read the second in the series also and wish to finish all of them.

Miss Mabel’s School for Girls by Katie Cross Miss Mabel’s School for Girls is the first book of four in the Network Series and the first book I have read written by Katie Cross. It is by far not the last one of her series that I will read. I have already downloaded the second book. In some ways I compare this series to Harry Potter as it contains a school and forests and witches and spells. It pulled me in from the very beginning and kept me hooked. I needed to find out how and why Bianca Monroe, the main character who is a sixteen-year old witch, inherited a deadly curse. This novel is listed as a read for Young Adults, but as an “older” adult I found it a fascinating read. Ms. Cross writes in a style for all levels of readers. If you enjoy fantasy, then this book is definitely one you should purchase. Once you read it, you too will go looking to get the other three. 07.02.18

I am not a youngster, 77years old. Raised reading fairy tales, fantasy and what ever else I desired. Miss Mabel’s School for Girls stepped right in and took over. I couldn’t put it down. Wonderful characters, fast moving story line! Horrible, evil villains, brave young heroine, wonderful friends, surprises and heart break. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. Thank you Katie Cross for introducing Bianca to my world Sincerely, P. F. Rose........

Harry Potter for girls! Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I usually read in bed and found myself going to bed early just so I could read more. Looking forward to next in the series.

Starts off slow. The beginning is- sort of like a Harry Potter take off. The story does get good, however, it ends in a cliff-hanger.

I'd have known that this is only the 1st book in a series of 4 books... that cost quite a bit. Well-done, tho.

Well done. Off to a witch's school, mean teachers, learning spells, couple of friends...welcome to an alternative world like Harry Potters. Fun book, kept me reading past midnight. Off to get the next adventure.

This story that had moments reminiscent of Harry Potter's Triwizard Tournament. It was such nice change to read a YA book without a love interest, and it's been a while since I've delved into a novel about witches. I never quite connected with the MC, but this was an interesting, quick read with some suspenseful situations - and a villain that was easy to dislike.

I really enjoyed this book and plan to read all the others in this series. I am in my seventies, so you can see that Kate's books are enjoyed by all ages. So what are you waiting for? Down load this book and get started, you will be glad you did.

OMG!!!! I loved this book. It was a cross between the Harry Potter books and "American Horror story: Coven". Pulled me right in and would not let me out. This would make a great movie. I can only hope. On to book 2.

Like a darker, more twisted Harry Potter. I have to say it's so refreshing to read a book from this genre that doesn't have a love triangle in it! This book kept my attention the whole time. It was paced well, with interesting characters. Bianca is a strong, determine, intelligent girl with quality friends. So often authors make the sidekicks stupid to play up the main character; not true in the case of Leda and Camille. Lots of twists and turns throughout the story. You'll catch yourself laughing and crying along with the heroine. Can't wait to see what the next book brings from this talented author!
