Seventeen-year-old Alyssa Wood's life is turned upside down when her boyfriend kills himself the day after she dumps him.
Blamed by the townsfolk of Broadwater and ostracized by her friends is bad enough. But the fallout from dealing with her mom's increasingly frequent psychotic episodes sends her fleeing to New York City to live with her aunt, a Wicca High Priestess.
Alyssa doesn't believe in magic, not any more.
She has a new life to lead: a new BFF in Seth and a major crush on Ronan, the sexy geek saxophonist who tutors music at her high school.
Can she leave her old life behind or will the ghosts of the past continue to haunt her?

I only gave 3 stars, even though i really enjoyed the story. I was extremely disappointed that it was less than 50 pages, and to continue the story you have to pay for another less than 50 pages. I most likely will not continue the series. :\
Amazing YA Book!!!!
