ENJOY THIS SNIPPET:
Rachel slid into the bleacher seat behind Joe and offered him a smile. "I brought you some water."
"Thanks." He snatched it from her and practically drank the whole thing, wishing he could have been a little gentler with his gesture. Rachel's long black hair flowed down her back. Her sea-blue eyes sparkled. He often noticed that when Rachel used her magic, her eyes glowed. She was really cute, but he didn't want to embarrass her by telling her that. Her smiles always gave him the encouragement he needed to tackle his problems.
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?
