Recommended for: Teenagers seriously considering converting/starting Wicca
Read in January, 2008 — I own a copy

This is the first book I have ever read on Wicca and witchcraft and while it does have its useful sections, it is geared more toward a teenaged audience, which is said so on the cover.

What I liked about Solitary Witch was the level of detail Silver RavenWolf gives when talking about the basics of Wicca and the craft. There is a plethora of charts and lists that give information on such things as colors, herbs, astrology, etc. as well as the attributes and uses that go with them. If you're a beginner in Wicca and/or are seriously considering making the switch to it, then this is a good book to read through.

While the creation of one's own spells is encouraged (for those who choose to practice the Craft), there are spells that have been created for the reader, but are based on a typical teenager's life: spells for your locker, for making new friends, for moving away from your old school/neighborhood, and so on and so forth.

Nevertheless, this is a good thick book full of basic Wiccan information. If you don't want to get into the teenaged-focus part, then that's ok, read Solitary Witch for the teachings about Wicca parts.
