Genre: YA Fairytale
Series: Beswitched (#1)
About the Book:
After spending hundreds of years under the boot-heel of Idis, a frenzied witch, Surla (a magical black cat) decides to run away to find freedom, but there's one catch-- The Black Cats' Rule states it will switch bodies with a lonesome soul.
Cathy, an extremely shy teenage girl, can't muster the guts to ask her crush on a date or stand up to the three biggest snobs at school. What's a girl to do? Could being BeSwitched be the answer to her wishes?
Darn those awkward teenage years. Where was the nearest witch's cat when I needed one? This is a very fun look into learning to like your differences and trusting friendships and looking deeper into a person to determine if they are worth being a friend. But most of all, it was just a really cute book! I enjoyed it from page one and it's pretty short so it flew by and made for an enjoyable afternoon. I really don't know how Molly managed to pack so much into 120 pages and still have some awesome character development and a plot that just moved you to turn the pages! Granted the minor characters were not as fleshed out, but I didn't feel like I was missing anything. The life lessons that were learned during the switch were told in a way that the younger reader will be able to understand exactly what is meant without having to try and decipher. I am so happy there is a sequel...although I also appreciate the fact that I could also just take the ending as The End and not be left on a cliff....just waiting around for the next installment. Very well done!
I'd have to say...If you are in the mood for a light hearted read get it now. Even though it is for the 13-18 year old crowd (I'd almost go younger except for one scene..) anyone can find great enjoyment in picking this up. I know I did.
