The Coven's Daughter by Lucy Jago - OPTIONAL

Jago, Lucy The Coven's Daughter 256 p. Hyperion Book, 2011. Content - PG. $16.99.

Cecily Perryn is a fatherless, lowly servant girl in the Montacute House and has only one friend, William. Days after her 13th birthday, Cess is accused of witchcraft. The only way to prove her innocence is by finding her best friend, William, and finding the real culprit of the recent kidnappings. It is only until she is in the thick of finding the kidnapper that Cecily realizes she is embroiled in a world she never knew existed with powers she never knew she possessed.

I was intrigued by the plot, but in the end the story really fell flat for me. There were some elements of the story that were too forced and others that were too unbelievable. The characters were well developed, but I still struggled to make a connection. Definitely not a buy-worth book.

EL/MS - OPTIONAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
