I got this from the library on a whim, and I have to admit the title sounded a bit suspicious. I was worried this would be filled with fluffy bunny paganism, with inaccurate information and lots of silliness. Instead, I got an incredibly well written and all-around excellent intro to solitary Wicca. The author has a good head on her shoulders, and gives the teen audience a lot of good advice. There's some great stuff in here about navigating people's prejudice against neo-pagan religions, includ ...more

A great intro to Wicca for young practitioners! Lauren does a great job going into the history of Wicca (and related religions/spiritual paths) before delving into the practical tips and tricks. She also includes clever, non-abrasive ways of approaching a spiritual/religious discussion with parents who may not be as open to Wicca/Witchcraft. I feel this book is a great starting point for teenagers who are hoping to branch out and discover or develop their own sense of spirituality and connection ...more

This was my first ever book on Paganism. I ran into it during a weekly trip to Borders with my best friend, when we were 13 years old. Not only is it a perfectly fabulous intro for teenagers to the world of Wicca and Paganism in general, it’s also perfect for adults who are new to all this. The information is accessible and intelligently curated. You don’t get overwhelmed with information, but still get everything you need to get started. There’s also a healthy emphasis placed on the religious a ...more

There was randomly a bunch of good ideas presented in this book that I never would have thought of on my own. The book is obviously a beginner type deal but it's a really fun read. I also like the author's stories about her "coming of age" experiences. ...more

Oh hey, I reviewed this on Amazon back in the day! Going to share here too:

The one thing that disappointed me about this book was although it started off strong, acknowledging openly that the form of witchcraft known as Wicca was largely a twentieth century creation and addressing well in a section of related spiritual paths the aspects of the various schools of modern Wicca which were borrowed from other religions, the author later slides back into the practice of using phrases like "in Wiccan

I was rereading this as it was the first book I ever read, it sparked my curiosity into this path and it has helped reignite that flame of curiosity I once had. There were some chapters that I more or less skimmed as I didn't really need those and no one wants to get too bored with the basics. However, I do find myself returning time and time again to the visualization chapter and its exercises.
It has a very grounded way of presenting information and I enjoy the excerpts from teens a lot.

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. Where to Park Your Broomstick contains much more valuable information. The author speaks to her intended readers on a level that is understanding instead of condescending. I 100% recommend this to anyone that is interested in learning about Wicca or witchcraft. ...more
Geared towards tweens, teens and their personal interests; good introduction to the subject of wicca.

This was the first Wiccan book I ever read and it was fantastic! 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

Very concise and informative despite it being targeted at youth. It doesn't talk down to the reader but it does shovel in terrible puns and "school am I right?" antidotes. A perfect read for anyone interested in the craft because it details rituals, what to look out for, and how to come out to others. ...more

Read it when I was younger. I would definitely put it on a Must-Read list for young people practicing or wanting to know more on Wicca
