I'm often drawn to witch stories and have read quite a few. This one is exceptionally fun with just the right amount of darkness. Kara's story is heartbreaking yet full of strength and I found myself attached to her plight. Growing up hated for being someone she's not is difficult enough but then Kara discovers everyone was right all along. Her bravery and conviction in who she is and what she believes makes this novel a beautiful and magical adventure.
