Audrey's Guide to Witchcraft by Jody Gehrman

Falling in Love, baking a magical cake, fighting an evil necromancer—it’s all in a day’s work for Audrey Oliver, seventeen-year-old witch-in-training.

When her mother goes missing and her twenty-one-year-old witchy cousin shows up out of the blue, Audrey knows something’s gone horribly, dangerously wrong. Now it’s up to her to get her own magical powers up to speed before everyone she loves is destroyed by the sorcerer intricately connected to her mother’s secret past.

Audrey is just your average teenage girl.  She likes spending time with her best friend, likes chemistry and baking.  Not so average - she's just found out she comes from a long line of witches.

When her mom disappears and a cousin she never knew she had shows up to take care of her and her sister, Audrey knows something is wishy washy.  Her mom never mentioned a big family or grandmother, just that she grew up on some hippy commune.

So between the boy she's crushing on, learning how to use her new witchy powers, brewing up spelling and whipping up creme brulee, Audrey has her hands full.  Especially since she wants to learn her new powers as soon as possible to help her mom on her magical mission.  A mission Audrey only finds out about when she strong arms cousin Sadie to tell her about.

From beginning to end, Audrey's Guide to Witchcraft is engaging, fun and unique! I really enjoyed every page of this magical adventure and look forward to reading more in this new, intriguing series! Audrey sparkles, even as she deals with real issues.  A gem of a book!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
