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 new boy enrolls at school and sets hearts a flutter, including Adam’s. Meanwhile, Christy’s mad crush on the handsome Ian seems to be going nowhere fast. Struggling to capture the heart of Ian while trying to come into her full witch powers is tough enough, but when a great evil arrives in town that threatens everything they hold dear, she realizes that finding a boyfriend is the least of her and Adam’s worries.
Soon Adam, Christy, their potential love interests, and their good friends Drifter and Olivia, will have to battle a force of darkness that has killed in their town before and will again.
Being from Texas, this was an especially interesting story. I don't often get to read about places I know. Then, how they used paranormal characters as well was pretty cool.
My favorite characters were Olivia and Drifter. Pretty much every time I burst out laughing was because of Olivia's "Pfft", and Drifter is just a really awesome guy. In the end, though, I kinda ended up feeling sorry for Drifter. He was a pretty cool character, but ended up getting shafted.
The story itself was awesome, but it needs work. Lots of times it felt too rushed, which took from a lot of the story. There were things said that ended up being contradicted and just downright being confusing.
I did like the relationship between Christy and Adam, and how important it was to them. That was the best part of the whole story.
