There's more than one way to be powerful . . .It is during a routine school project that Abby Silva--sixteen and nearly friendless--makes a startling discovery: She is descended from women who were accused of witchcraft back in 1600s Salem. And when Abby visits nearby Salem, strange, inexplicable events start to unfold. Objects move when she wills them to. Candles burst into sudden flame. And an ancient spellbook somehow winds up in her possession.Trying to harness her newfound power, Abby concocts a love potion to win over her longtime crush--and exact revenge upon his cruel, bullying girlfriend. But old magic is not to be trifled with. Soon, Abby is thrust headlong into a world of hexes, secrets, and danger. And then there's Rem Anders, the beautiful, mysterious Salem boy who seems to know more about Abby than he first lets on.A reckoning is coming, and Abby will have to make sense of her history--and her heart--before she can face the powerful truth.

*MEH* Is the word of the day for this.Look at that cover, looks intriguing, right? If you're into YA and witches (LOVED me some Secret Circle back in the day) then from the cover, the title, even the blurb... it looks like this may just be good. Magical powers, ancestral ties to the Salem witch tr...
It’s been a while since I last read a novel about teenage witches and I have to admit that I have a soft spot for the genre (if it could be considered a genre, maybe a sub-genre?). After reading the seriously awesome, not to mention heart-stopping, prologue to Spellbinding by author Maya Gold I had ...
