This time around Kendra is trying to help out a girl named Emma. One thing I loved about this book is that this is a book within a book.

But it’s all worth it! Feb 17, Anne rated it it was amazing Shelves: Happily ever after right? Next, the writing style. From Beastly to A Kiss in Timeeach of her book kept me engrossed in pages, Bewitching was no exception. Will her efforts turn out as tragically as it did with a certain mermaid?

Bewitching by : Alex Flinn by courtney borne on Prezi

I will absolutely be looking back into the other books that this author has written- I am absolutely a fan now! So that explains the existence of many tales from different times and places, many of which involve the same witch.

But its her I am and Bewithing am glad Emma stuck to who she was and never faltered. I had such a fab time reading this book! But my God, there are better ways to handle things.

I was sad about how Kendra discovered who bewitchihg really was, a witch, only she discovered bewitchung when she only had 1 family member left alive Charlie her little brother, I can’t believe she had a twin but he died aleex the plague, just like her parents and other siblings, I liked the story of the gingerbread house and the witch that actually teaches her everything she now knows.

The story is primarily from Kendra’s point-of-view, but does switch to the view of the character she is helping at the moment, mainly Emma.

Alex Flinn did an incredible job on this book, and I honestly think that it’s her best book out of the ones that I’ve read! Bewitching felt more like two separate novels smashed into one. And I pretty much know everything after hundreds of years—except for Bewitching can be a beast. Since she miraculously saved her brother from a disease that wasn’t curable, they decide to run away.

If you love fairy tales, you will eat this up! What if the evil step-sisters weren’t so bad, but cruelly manipulated by Cinderella? Weak excuse to have her life story told. And as far as contemporary Cinderella retellings go, this is my hands-down favorite so far. Who was he staying with?
