Hmmm...what can I say about this book? Jane Austen meets J. K. Rowling? I plodded through the first part pretty much convinced I really didn't like it. Then yesterday evening I pulled it out to force myself to read a chapter or two and ended up finishing the entire book. It turned out to be an enjoyable if not very deep read. I think middle school romance readers (okay, girls) will like it. I give it 3.5 stars.

I thought it was interesting that the author's advice about writing was:
"Two things: Don't sit at the computer and wait for the muse to appear and inspire you--if there's no wind, row. And write what you're passionate about, not what you think is popular. The difference in your writing will be obvious."
:) Apparently Doyle made her main characters witches and wizards because she is passionate about them and not because she thought they might be popular with her readers!
