On both counts the bullies are right.
Their junior year in high school seems destined to be the same old same old until Christy decides to cast a love spell for Adam at the midnight hour. The next day an alluring and mysterious boy enrolls at school and sets hearts aflutter, including Adam’s. Meanwhile, Christy’s mad crush on the handsome football player Ian seems to be going nowhere fast and her witch puberty is making her life miserable.
When a great evil arrives in town that threatens everything they hold dear, the best friends realize that finding a boyfriend is the least of their worries. Soon Adam and Christy will have to battle a force of darkness that has killed in their town before, and will again.
I am very happy that I made and be part of the tour The Midnight Spell , is one of the books that undoubtedly is in my favorites for many reasons.
To start , the book was written by two authors and the sound and line of the book is like a person , but also, gives us the assurance that they are two authors , why? because each of our protagonists has some feature of both authors.
The story will have the way to what a YA could be defined, but breaks the scheme in many ways and it is nice to see the risk that the authors took, Christy and Adam are our protagonists, unique and different, and above all, great friends! Their friendship starts from children and to grow,still stands and each would support to the other, if that means breaking the rules.
Adam is gay and Christy is a witch, are teenagers with their pros and cons of age, be different probably is not easy but they have each other, including his family, a midnight spell with good wishes from Christy to Adam, it works very well, it will change their lives, with emotions, magic crushes, risks and even new friends.
As I said above, the authors broke the schemes we could be accustomed, the protagonists are not foresee falling in love, on the contrary, here reinforces what is a true friendship, regardless of race, gender, likes, or if have supernatural powers. One of the protagonists is gay! wao, Bravo! many authors do not take this risk of put them of protagonist and less in a book classified as YA, we can see them in the background, supporting the protagonist, but not as a protagonist as such. Christy is not the typical perfect girl, she is natural, even his physical description is not the usual, but his attitude makes it perfect as a protagonist. The two are definitely my favorites, and even the secondary characters win your heart.
This book is a little jewel that you should not pass up, has mystery, friendship, love, fun, laughter, and how to avoid paranormal state, added with one or another scare and surprises. El work of Kody and Rhiannon is beautiful, is supernatural and is incredibly magical. I'm, one of the many people who support please write a sequel.
P. S The cover is very beautiful and as good Crazy Cat Girl, I'm a fan of Callie the Cat
