When her widowed father dumps 16-year-old Katy Jessevar in a boarding school in Whitfield, Massachusetts, she has no idea that fate has just opened the door to both her future and her past. Nearly everyone in Whitfield is a witch, as is Katy herself, although she has struggled all her life to hide her unusual talents. Stuck at a boarding school where her fellow studens seem to despise her, Katy soon discovers that Whitfield is the place where her mother committed suicide under mysterious circumstances when Katy was just a small child. With dark forces converging on Whitfield, it’s up to Katy to unravel her family’s many secrets to save the boy she loves and the town itself from destruction.

My Review:

Ummm.... how to review this book?... hmmm... well, the summary was interesting but once you start reading it, it turns out to be a Fail.

Not so much that I didn't like it, but there were a few situations that were just instant turn-off. Example: Katy - the main character - arrives to a new school, nobody talks to her and basically they want to steer clear from her, and she just lets it be. But then there's the King of the Jerks, meet Peter. who treats her like crap and actually, ACTUALLY SHOVES HER ACROSS THE ROOM, and the next day he's all sweet and nice [He has a serious bipolar disorder] and she's all 'Oh My God I Love Him. I know he's the one. I just know.' WHAT?!!? Have a bit of dignity! if a guy treats you like that you do NOT go crawling after him. Period.

I would also find myself flipping through the pages, just skipping parts here and there, it really never caught my attention. I really wish it had been more, I wanted to like it, the summary was promising. I think it could've had a better development. There was action, romance, mystery... but it never got to me. Not once. it was just like watching a movie in mute. I tried, but the relationship between me and this book was not good.

In all honestly - and sadness - I do not recommend this book :/
