If you only like happy endings - don't read this book!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, especially the twist at the end 28 May 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm not a big fan of fantasy books, but I've been trying to read more since my daughter loves them. I was intrigued by the plot of this book, but as soon as I started reading I got worried it wouldn't have a happy ending. I didn't know how it could end up happy after reading the first few chapters. That's something I really need in a book, a happy ending. The story was so interesting that I couldn't put it down and I just kept reading and reading. Then when I got to the end I was totally shocked by the ending! It did end happy, but I was so unprepared for it! I couldn't sleep after that, I had to review the whole book thinking of how it related to the ending. Then I literally dreamed about it all night long! Same thing this morning, I couldn't get it out of my head. It is a good feeling though and I sure hope there is a sequel, I totally want to read more about these characters!!! There is so much story left to be told.

'Funny Tragic Crazy Magic', by Sheena Boekweg
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Tragic Crazy Magic 18 April 2013
By M. Crouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book really lives up to its name. Larissa's life moves from the tragedy of losing her parents and sister, and the loneliness of being alone into craziness as she tries to protect her best friend and get her mother's runebook back, and along the way there are scenes that will make you laugh out loud. Add to that a breathtaking romance, and you've got my favorite kind of book. It's a great stand-alone book, but I've got my fingers crossed for a sequel.

3.0 out of 5 stars This book made me a little crazy!! 17 Nov. 2013
By Momof3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It was a good and entertaining read. It was interesting, the young love , the mystery plot, the magic. It was good in the since you didn't figure it all out right away. Matter of fact when It came to the end I had to back up and reread a chapter. I thought I had missed something it couldn't end like that it would be crazy, right? Well I did ,and I am glad I took a few minutes to go back. I am usually the one the calls the endings to books or movies. This was a twist I did not see coming.

5.0 out of 5 stars This heroine rocks! 13 May 2013
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Funny Tragic Crazy Magic is a fun read with a refreshing, unique take on witches, magic, and the age-old war between the sexes. Larissa is one of the most likable heroines I've read in a long time, like the best friend I always wished I had. When the book opens, she's lost everything except her wit and humor, which shine through the narrative. She's funny and strong but still has the vulnerability of a teenager up against much more powerful adversaries, and that made the story a lot more relatable than some urban fantasies. Larissa isn't the kind of girl who wins every fistfight, but she is the kind who will persevere to protect the people she cares about.

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!
