CLARA IS THE PERFECT LITTLE WITCH.
No skipping school, no partying, and absolutely no dating. Her greatest dream is to land the lead in the high school musical, Grease—an honor that has escaped her for three years. After graduation her life will be all witch council rules, an arranged marriage, and babies. Blah, blah, blah. Then she meets Sam at auditions. His well-toned muscles stand out in the drama crowd. The hot as hell transfer student is definitely the Danny to her Sandy.
Injured, Sam needs to try something different than sports. Tired of the military preparation his father pushes on him, he auditions for the school musical. What began as a defiant whim becomes much more when he meets Clara. But the beautiful girl has secrets. Dangerous secrets.
Clara can’t risk her family and fall in love with an ungifted. She can’t defy the council rules. But love has a way of not following the rules.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING
This book was fast paced and addictive, filled with magic and a lot of secrets to be uncovered. It also felt like a science-y and less dark version of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina mixed with vibes from The Darkest Minds series.
I really enjoyed the relationships that these characters had. Maddie looked out of her little brother, and she had a decent relationship with her parents, given that she's what's called a Defect and that's not a good thing to be in their world. And then there was Jax. Oh, boy, their relationship was just awesome! I loved the snark and the one liners!
WORDS I WRITE CRAZY
I didn't look up from the moment I started and to be honest, I didn't want to leave.
Lush with rich detail, I felt like I was there for the epic adventure. This book hit everything that I love and more. Topped off with well rounded characters and a unique original plot, and you got yourself a top shelf read.
DON'T JUDGE, READ
I grew up loving to escape to the fantasy world in books. While other kids were out and about I loved hanging out at the library. At the age of twelve, I began writing after I had a series of extremely vivid dreams that begged to be made onto a story.
In high school and college I focused on science and graduated with a degree in environmental biology.
After college I began writing again, but quickly realized I had failed to take a single writing or grammar class. Luckily, I'm a quick learner.
I now enjoys making up stories and can’t seem to leave out the paranormal elements because they are just too much fun.
