Description: Bianca Monroe is a sixteen-year-old witch who has inherited a dangerous curse. Bianca risks everything to enroll in Miss Mabel's School for Girls. She's determined to rid herself of the curse by confronting the witch who cast it in the first place: Miss Mabel. Will her plans work in her favor? Or will she die by the curse?
What I Think About It: I adored this book from beginning to end. The Plot was unpredictable and simple at the same time.I really like reading things that surprise me. There was never a dull moment in this novel, I loved that about it!
I've not read many books with witches but this book makes me crave more. The world was well developed but at times it felt a bit shallow. As if we were only skimming the surface of it.
This novel left me with a hollow feeling inside, as if it ripped out a piece of my soul when it came to an end. Will I be able to recover?
Bianca - Unlike any other 16-year-old. Courageous or stupid? Maybe she's both but she's also brilliant and thinks quickly in tough situations. She's a really strong character. I loved her!
Miss Mabel - Evil to the core. I hated her! (Which is, I suspect, how it's supposed to be?)
In Conclusion: 4.5 / 5 STARS It was a great story with awesome characters, but my heart could not handle all the feels that came along with it.
