Review: Bewitching By: Alex Flinn

Bewitching (Kendra Chronicles, #1)Bewitching by Alex Flinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alex Flinn did not disappoint. I am a lover of her writing and the play on fairy tales with modern twists, like a disney princess all grown up shopping at the mall.

This book contains stories within the story. Meet back up with Kendra, the witch from past books, read her story and at times her voice starting with the plague and the gingerbread house. You will meet up with a couple of people from her past and they will have their own voice, such as the Princess and the Pea and the Little Mermaid (of course both set during actual time events in history) and also a twist on Cinderella that Kendra currently finds herself involved in.
Emma has all the love she needs until her step father's daughter, Lisette, comes to live with them. As beautiful as Lisette is, there is something not quite right and actually ugly about her. Enter Kendra trying to find a friend and finding one in Emma, she wants to set the balance right and although an unexpected ending, it still is very happy.

A nice read, especially with Flinn's twists and for those that still wish upon stars.
