Rogelia's House of Magic by Jamie Martinez Wood - NO

Wood, Jamie Martinez Rogelia's House of Magic, 320 p. Random House, 2008.


Xochitl used to be happy in her life with her sister, but now her sister is dead and Xochitl is in a new country with her family. Marina is American through and through, but something about Latino spiritualism draws her, especially because she has no other way to understand the messages she seems to be receiving from spirits. Rogelia, Xochitl's grandmother, is willing to teach the girls about their powers and the world beyond. Marina and the girls held no interest for me.

The story just doesn't seem to work right; but I know nothing about wicca, which this seems to be.
