Take this as the compliment it is: This book reminded me of one of those Disney movies about teen witches that they show all October long. (Note to self: Set DVR.) It was light and fun and in the end things worked out great.

Cam works after school in her grandmother Mimi's magic store. It's got everything the new age witch needs and everything that new age witch needs to sell to tourists in order to make money. There's real magic there, sure, but it's surrounded by glitz and glamour. Cam finds a spell, a real spell, for ultimate power, and decides it's what she must do in order to maintain her 3.9 GPA and get past that pesky class on Shakespeare she dislikes so much. Her best friend Reade is in it for the love, because all the other love spells she's tried on the handsome and angry Troy just aren't working. And Zach is in it just because. Just because of the power and the challenge or just because he really wants to spend time with Cam.

There's a ferret named Four, a kitten named Egg Salad, locker shenanigans, graveyard capers, a grandmother's boyfriend, and a very bad man who is going to try to take everything Cam and her friends worked so hard for.

A quick and fun read! The sheer hilarity of some of the comments, inner thoughts, and reactions had me laughing out loud several times. I would not hesitate to read more from this author! ( )

★★★★Spellbound and Determined by Dax Varley

I won this R2R through LibraryThing Members Giveaway in exchange for my honest review.

Come in for a spell. This is a cute book.

Cam has the perfect job. She works at Mimi's Charms and Enchantments. She works with Mimi. They are both very colorful characters, most of the time, literally.

When a stranger drops a spell as he hurries out of the store, she learns some very useful information. The spell is very old and it is for Power Supreme. This is just what she needs, since her and Julius Caesar aren't really seeing eye to eye. Caesar could be the downfall to her English Lit class and 3.9 GPA.

Her and her friends go out in search for the remaining stuff, needed for the spell. Teamwork is needed to complete the spell, but with this goofballs it may take a while to collect it all.

The book was funny. They are all a bunch of 'smarty pants' like to poke fun at each other and mess around. I was laughing through most of this book. I know my daughter will love it in a few years, when she's a bit older.

Thanks to the author for this witty group of paranorms. ( )

This was a great story,kept your interest throughout. Love the conflict and the group dynamics. Great read for YA as well as parents. I would recommend this book with 5 stars ( )

What would you do if a mysterious spell for Power Supreme fell into your lap, while you were working in your grandmother's magic shop? Well Cam doesn't hesitate to get together with her best friend and a boy from school to obtain the ingredients and earn Power Supreme.

I love this story and the characters, who felt like old friends. It is definitely a YA book, with its teenage dramas, but it is told in a way that even older people would love. I hope there is a second book to the series as the ending seemed short - like jumping off the cliff instead of hiking down the side of the mountain.
