I'm intrigued so I'm going to give the audiobook version a try when it's released later this year. Thanks for the heads up.

I hope you enjoy it!
Do you think you need to be a fan and have knowledge of Buffy and Potter to really enjoy, get into this?

Not at all. You can substitute Buffy for just about any franchise in which "special" teenagers are trained by a mentor to fight otherworldly beasties. If you know what Buffy is, it's just shorthand to let you know what kind of tropes to expect. The Potterverse is minimally involved and mainly referenced to show the kind of fandoms Alice and her friends are in to. If you know what the Hogwarts Houses are (Slytherin, Gryffindor, etc,) and you know what a Time Turner is, you're good.
Hmm, I'll have to think about this more, I've actually never read the Potter books :/ YA is hard for me to but the cover and your review had my ears perking up. Maybe I'll see if my library has it. Thanks for the heads-up and review for it :)

If you decide to give it a chance, I hope it works out for you. :)
