I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a wonderfully written, short story. I couldn't seem to put it down. Then when I was done I gave it to my daughter, who is 15. We are both eager to read the next book. This is one of those books that isn't just for one generation of reader.

I found evertrhing about this story to be bland, from the storyline to the characters. The author has potential, but this book reads like a novel written by an ambitious teen, not just a book for teens.

Did I enjoy this book: You know what? It was great. Think . . . Harry Potter with cell phones. Humans and fae share control of the magical town of Madrone, so along with the usual teen angst, high school’s also filled with multi-day faerie parties, vampires, and parents who use locator spells to keep track of their kids. I was expecting to have to put my “willing suspension of disbelief” to the test, but Walker manages to mix everything from shape-shifting and sorcery to family politics and teen sexual exploration into a cohesive, delightful story. Walker’s young adult readers might not be witches or kitsune, but I can bet they’ll find Rosa’s problems (magical AND mundane) to be both entertaining and realistic. Would I recommend it: Absolutely. As reviewed by Melissa at Every Free Chance Books. Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange  for an honest review.

Small Town Witch finds Rosa at the age of 16 living with her sister, father and mother in a small cottage surrounded by a garden. Rosa and her sister attend a private school that caters to witchlings, fae and magikins. Rosa and her best friend, Lyndsey, have had a falling out and Rosa befriends Heather – a new girl in school. As the book progresses Rosa finds out something about her mother that tears her family apart. This is a well written story that incorporates the openness that is being found more often in society. In this story a witch may date a magikin, fairy or human and bisexuality is a given. Family is discussed and what family and friendship can and does mean varies from one person to the next within the story. Fun and filled with issues that made me think, this story is one I believe will appeal to teens. 4.5 stars

I as given this book with the understanding that I would write an honest review. The story it self was cute, and an easy read for middle school students. The idea that magikin and normal people could live together in one small town and know about it was unique as in most stories I have read they are hidden and no one can know and the setting is usually the big city. I liked Rosa and her perfect family, though things are not always as they seem. Her friends though all different magikin were still friends who were there for her when she needed them, just like in our world where race should never keep people apart. The negative for me was the hints of homosexuality which I think is inappropriate for a book written for students at this young age.
