The Unwilling Witch by David Lubar –ADVISABLE

Lubar, David The Unwilling Witch (Accidental Monsters #2) 160 pgs. Starscape, 2013. $11.99.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

Angie has a chance meeting with an elderly woman and ends up with an unexpected gift, magical powers! Things are a bit of out of control, especially when she accidentally changes her brother into a doll and can’t figure out how to turn him back. Then two very scary real witches seem to know what Angie can do and want her powers for themselves.
This appears to be a re-release, of a sort, maybe with added content and updating. I am glad that many spooky series are doing this, especially the fresh covers, but can I request some new stories too? This book features fantastic modern cover art and illustrations, students will fight over this one. I thought the story was well written and moved as a fast paced. Students will enjoy this story without losing sleep after they read it.
