This book was really fun! The spell stuff was a little weird for me since they were in a regular high school. It wasn’t like it was a fantasy world. But even with my dislike of the love potion idea I still really liked this book. It had a lot more depth to it than I expected.
Evie was a freshman and Parvani was her best friend who had a crush on Jordan, Evie’s childhood friend. I liked that Evie and Jordan had a history. They played together as little kids and had a ton of memories of going to theme parks and playing at each other’s houses, too cute. Then they had a fall out in junior high, definitely relatable. Most of us probably had elementary school friends we weren’t friends with by high school. Parvani was a little naive and a freshman so she thought she should give Jordan a love potion. Evie didn’t always make the best choices, but hey she was young and allowed to make silly mistakes especially while grieving the death of her father.
My favorite scenes were during the capture the flag games, so fun. It brought back a bunch of memories for me. One thing that drove me crazy throughout the book was that Jordan said “like” too much. It was easily ignored though.
I highly recommend this enjoyable book! If you’re in the mood for a fun, young high school book with a little spell action go check it out.
