really liked it
Read from September 10 to 13, 2011

As a lover of the Private novels, I wasn't disappointed with this book but I was expecting more. I was a little disappointed with the story and the way the girls came to be witches, I was expecting it to be a little more exciting.

The parallels between present Easton and the Billings School are really similar; it was nice to see that. Between Theresa Billings, Noelle, Reed, and Eliza Williams, the similarities are uncanny.

It's a very easy, light read. It does really good as a prequel but it's also great as a stand alone book if you have not read the Private series.

There wasn't too much magic or romance but it also wasn't too girly; it had a really good balance of everything! If you're looking for a sort of supernatural, easy read, this is your book!
