This is a very engaging story of an adolescent girl coming into her powers. Nevermind that her powers are literally, her ability with witchcraft, this is a perfect coming of age tale for a girl. Tiffany is completely believable as a socially awkward, somewhat "country" pre-teen fending off the advances of a young (?!) man completely unsuited for her while denying her affection for another young man and defending herself from the jealousy of the unseated lady love of the unsuitable boy. At the same time, she has to save a girl she doesn't particularly like from harming everyone around her and navigate the tricky waters of family life. Teen life at its finest!

So, maybe Tiffany is training to be a witch, and the unsuitable young man and his lady love are gods... It's all good fun and every inch as readable as it should be. It had me looking for the next one right away.
