Being in high school sucks. Just ask Richard “Tex” McKenna, a Kansas sophomore. Dealing with bullying, burgeoning love, the loss of parents, and dodge ball is bad enough. To top it off, he's just found out he's a witch! Oh, and fellow students are being murdered. The suspicious eyes of local law enforcement are looking right at Tex and his loyal group of friends. And so is the killer. Will Tex's new-found skills prove helpful? Or cause even more problems?
Review by Lissa:
This was a really good story. I loved the feel of it. The story starts with Tex and his friends. The only girl in the group, Olivia is a force to be reckoned with. I think she would of been a blast to hang out with. There was also Ian and Josh. Josh was an amazing skateboarder.
Tex is being bullied at school. Teenagers can be so ruthless. He also has gone through a tragedy. Just imagine being bullied and losing someone you loved.
He finds out that he is a witch, in totally disbelief. He finds guidance through Mickey who is just this crazy character. But someone Tex really needed.
There is a murder mystery that needs to be solved and leaves you at the edge of your seat.
There is a great Anti-bullying message in this book and I think it would be a perfect read for someone going through the exact same thing. Its where you can also learn something about yourself. I was bullied as a teen as well, so this really hit home.
Stuart is such a talented writer. I'm going to check out his other books as well. I would really recommended this to anyone of any age. It's something we can all relate to in one way or another.
