Zinns novel is a constant, high spirited adventure. Kyra “Kitty” is a strong lead character. She sticks by what she thinks is right even though it may be at personal cost to her. The story is filled with fun whimsical imagery and the supporting characters are all strong and have separate distinct characteristics. It truly is a shame that the author, who was also a librarian, passed away before she could see her first novel published.

um. I thought the book was okay. I didn't really care for the whole witch spark thing. and I don't really like the whole magic and sorcery thing either, but I thought it was good. I thought the plot was okay, but I am a little disappointed that it was on my summer reading list. I wish it didn't really make it on there. but oh, well!

This book comes with a very sad story. Bridget Zinn wrote this book and got diagnosed with cancer shortly after. She died in 2011 and her family and friends got this book published in her memory. It was a great book and I am glad they could do that for her.

Good book! The plot is fresh and fast-paced, the characters are quirky and endearing, and the romance is cute but not overwhelming. There's a bit of magic and fantasy (witches, special abilities) that makes the book a thoroughly enjoyable read.
This is a note not about the book, but about the author: After I read the book, I googled the author to see if there would be a sequel. It was an absolutely heartbreaking moment when I read she died from cancer before her book was published. Her dream was to get a book published and now it has! RIP Bridget Zinn. I enjoyed your book very much. <3
