I would say it was suitable more for young adults and older rather than young teens, it is the story of a teenage witch who is only interested in spells that make her slimmer and fix her hair until her parents are killed and it is too late to learn any more from them. Although still at school she is considered an adult in the witch world and is left to fend for herself - she needs to find her mother's lost/stolen spellbook and discover her own powers, learning along the way that you can't trust anyone, least of all witches.
This book is a different world to Harry Potter and any other magic/fantasy type book I have read, but is very enjoyable
I would definitely be interested in reading the next book in the series to see if she can be extricated from the situation she is in at the end of the book.

Larissa Alvarez is a Mexican American, and although that would be enough to make her unusual as a main character, she's also a witch, raised by witch parents. Early in the book, when she's in her mid teens, her parents and sister are killed in a car crash. The book is the story of her growing into a friendship with a new guy at school and figuring out what happened to her family, along with learning the ins and outs of witch culture, and it's all told from a mental hospital. At first Larissa really irritated me with her selfish immaturity, but she got past it, and it was central to the plot.
The book is well written with few if any typos, and it's easy to feel like you know the main characters. It did get bogged down at times, where it seemed like nothing central to the plot was happening, but that's really my only complaint. And really, even then the story was interesting. It just could have been better with a little trimming.
The witch culture portrayed in the book is pleasingly convoluted and detailed, with good and bad characters everywhere, and often with no clear indication as to which side they're on. I thought the characters' motivations made sense when all was said and done, and I LOVED the ending. Kudos to Miss Boekweg for a fantastic twist/climax.
4.5 stars rounded up to 5.
Language: It's been a few weeks since I read it, but I can't remember any bad language at all. If there's any, it's mild.
Sexual Content: A couple kisses.
Violence: Nothing remarkable, just some witchcraft craziness.
Over-all Message/Plot: It took its time coming together, but when it did, it was great. The ending was movie worthy.

Larissa's relationship with Joe is sweet, beautifully paced, and captures all the longing and uncertainty that comes with young love. These characters read like real teenagers, which should make them appealing both to teens and to adults who remember being teens, which is basically everyone. The whole book had me guessing how these two were going to get through the trials they faced, up until the last pages. I hope I'll get to read more of Larissa's story. She's so much fun to root for!
