I got this from the library on a whim, and I have to admit the title sounded a bit suspicious.

I bought this book for my teen sister but ended up reading it myself. I read Teen Witch when I was young, but it didn't bring much clarity.

I 100% recommend this to anyone that is interested in learning about Wicca or witchcraft.

If anyone reads this book as a kid or teenager or beginning witch/wiccan/pagan, read it and then read Drawing Down the Moon because this is an introduction and the latter is a very detailed, informative and WONDERFUL guide to modern Paganism and Wicca
