Review

I would give this book a 3 1/2 because when ever I was reading it I liked it but I always wanted to read something else. I did like the fact that the main character was my age because i can relate to how she feels some of the time about not wanting to grow up.

The author could have put more background info. about the demons and witches because it would be much easier to understand.
