“So Mote It Be – Circle of Three (Book 1) ” Isobel Bird
Kate Morgan, a 16-year-old, popular basketball player, is assigned a term paper on the witch trials of the 17th century. Amongst the pile of books she checks out of the library, she finds an actual spellbook. Skeptical at first, she decides to try a love spell to attract the football-playing senior of her dreams. When the spell goes haywire — earning her the attentions of every guy in school and the ire of all their girlfriends — she begins wishing that magic wasn’t real after all! (Witchy Books Network)
“So Mote It Be”, Book 1 of the Circle of Three series for young adults, was a quick and enjoyable read. Although it dealt with actual Wiccan practices, it was told in a ‘real world’ type of teenager environment. No talking cats or flying broomsticks. The Wicca itself was fairly basic, which is to be expected of a young adult book. The main character Kate, a popular jock, finds herself becoming interested in Wicca for reasons she can’t explain. Along the way she befriends the unlikely, a shy bookworm Annie and rebellious (riot grrrl-esque) Cooper. Together they form a friendship that takes them through their spiritual journey and the trials and tribulations of high school.
Even though the books are now out of print (I have an eBook version), I plan on reading the rest of the series. An enjoyable easy read.
