Overview
A teenage witch juggles popularity and romance while keeping her powers a secret in this spellbinding debut.

Almost-sixteen-year-old Brooklyn feels invisible, but she desperately wants to be pretty, to be popular, to be adored by a cute guy. Luckily for her, she's a witch about to come of age--so she's only a few spells away from making it all happen.

On her milestone birthday, Brooklyn's conservative parents finally unbind her powers, which include the ability to magically match couples with a love spell. Brooklyn uses her special skills to get a makeover, new friends, and the attention of her crush, Asher. But the popular clique Brooklyn wants to infiltrate puts her in the same precarious position as her Salem ancestors: If she's found out, she could be vilified--and lose Asher in the process. Can she make the most of her magic, or will she be luckless and loveless? Be careful what you witch for

Every teen has felt the longing to be more beautiful, more popular, more approved. Brooklyn has that need to an exceptional degree, but unlike most teenagers, she can do something about it. On Brooklyn’s 16th birthday, her parents unbind her innate witch powers, and within 24 hours she has conjured the attention-grabbing body of her dreams. Unless the coolest kids in school anoint her as one of them, however, her triumph won’t be complete. Despite the implausible trappings of the premise—Brooklyn can perform any spell without practice; her public school classmates include a movie star’s daughter and the son of a CEO—Geragotelis’s previously self-published debut novel settles into a more realistic mode fairly quickly. How far is Brooklyn willing to go to curry favor with “The Elite,” and what price will she pay among those who liked her just as she was? This is the first book in a series, so don’t expect all the answers, but the wish-fulfilling comeuppance at the end of this installment is worth the price of admission. Ages 14–up.
