Review: Spell Check


Spell Check
Spell Check by Julie Wright

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Book description:

A skeleton is rattling its way out of the closet marked “FAMILY SECRET! KEEP OUT!”
Allyson Peterson believes that being hanged by the Salem High Witches is the absolute worst thing that can happen. But when her powers, wrested from the trolls of ancient Sweden, manifest themselves, she realizes that a prank hanging by vindictive cheerleaders is the least of her worries.

Ally accidentally sends her parents to the jungle to fight anacondas, turns her brother into a mute, and curses the entire cheerleading team with an illness that has no cure, proving that her spells need a little checking. Her Swedish grandmother shows up to help her through the worst part of all—surviving the Troll Trials and saving the guy of her dreams from a vengeance that has festered through-out generations.
The power is in her, if she can just get the magic right.


REVIEW:


Fun, silly, clean, teen read. Spell Check is the first Julie Wright book that I have read and I was very impressed that the interest was kept while keeping it clean. Most of the books I read (even some recommended for teens) veer a little towards too adult. This story was very typical of school kids, pranks and mean girls.....yet with a fun family (witch coming into powers) twist.

I enjoyed the witty personality of our new teen witch and I absolutely loved the calm and humorous way her grandmother brought her into her new powers. The story was full of wishes and unwishes like growing up sometimes can be. Not everything works out perfect, but it wouldn't have made as much sense if it had.

Good clean book for teens and adults.
