Bewitching can be a beast. . . .

Once, I put a curse on a beastly and arrogant high school boy. That one turned out all right. Others didn't.

I go to a new school now--one where no one knows that I should have graduated long ago. I'm not still here because I'm stupid; I just don't age.

You see, I'm immortal. And I pretty much know everything after hundreds of years--except for when to take my powers and butt out.

I want to help, but things just go awry in ways I could never predict. Like when I tried to free some children from a gingerbread house and ended up being hanged. After I came back from the dead (immortal, remember?), I tried to play matchmaker for a French prince and ended up banished from France forever. And that little mermaid I found in the Titanic lifeboat? I don't even want to think about it.

Now a girl named Emma needs me. I probably shouldn't get involved, but her gorgeous stepsister is conniving to the core. I think I have just the thing to fix that girl--and it isn't an enchanted pumpkin. Although you never know what will happen when I start . . . bewitching.

This was a fairly good book. Alex Flinn cleverly combined all the witches from well-known fairytales highlighting the witch’s life and why she chose to lead that life. It wasn’t Alex Flinn’s best book, but it also wasn’t her worst book. It is a good read when you are wanting a change from the classic love story, but other than that it wasn’t overly enjoyable. - @bookwormanonymous of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This book was amazing! I loved the way the book was written but the stories inside were not all as interesting as the fairy tell we are all used to. All in all, I found the book really interesting.

Wow! I couldn't put this book down. And I'm a fussy reader. This author has talent! One of the best books I've ever read.

From the author of Beastly, which was recently made into a movie. Even if you didn't like that (like me), read this. It's awesome.

it wasn't a horrible time-wasting read but it definitely was not Flinn at her best. The book was all over the place re-telling too many fairy-tales for my taste before really settling into the main plot. I liked the ending though, she does usually find her way to happy endings in her books.

Realy good! I love Alex Flinn's fairy tale retellings. I really like Kendra and found the way the book was written interesting and original. Most definetly worth picking up.

This book is about a witch who goes through life wanting to be different from what others believe witches are like. Which is hard when your the witch of most fairy tells. On her way through life she meets a girl names Emma. Her life much like a Cinderella story. With a huge twist. Read Bewitching for more.
