ENJOY THIS SNIPPET:
Gnawing at her lower lip, she stood.
Her father glanced at her. Rachel's mother peered over her father's shoulder.
"It's not wise," her father said.
"I have to."
Her father picked up a water bottle and handed it to her. "Broomsticks and crystals, at least have a reason. And be alert. Don't let anyone see your eyes glow."
Rachel's secret would have Cotton Mather rolling over in his grave. She's been raised from an early age to use magic for good, despite her temptation to cast a spell against Phil the bully who can't stop teasing her.
Joe thinks Rachel is cool, especially when she weaves her healing magic spells on him, but he's got his own problems. It's not easy keeping Rachel safe from Phil's constant threats.
When Phil poisons Rachel, can love and little young witchcraft bring Rachel and Joe together or have years of Phil's bullying ruined their relationship for good?
