BEWITCHING by Alex Flinn | Kirkus Reviews
While reading Bewitching I really grew to like Kendra. Remember the witch who made the gingerbread house? This is nothing like the original Cinderella story but so much more! Kendra, who has been enrolled in high school about different times, decides to befriend Emma. I have to say that I loved her snark and her wins and looses in the witchery business and throughout every page there are fabulous times in store for readers.
I was collecting rejection slips at age seven! Like a miracle he survives and they entire out of their vill A finished unsolicited copy was provided by the publisher for review.
Also another thing i loved about the book, all the historical notes she put into this. One of the only ways a witch can truly die. He was the one who handed me a copy of Ellen Tebbits and said, “I think you’re ready for this. It was so fun to see those stories tied into a piece of historical fiction. Although this is the second in the Kendra Chronicles series, this is the first book in the series that I read.
Although I may not in the end had a like for all of them, they were vlinn very well written characters, that you couldn’t help but like It was, in fact, the best thing I’ve read in a while. I neither felt sorry for him or Emma.
What if the witch wasn’t an evil shrew, but just a lonely girl who tries to help others, sometimes with disastrous results? We get to see her life and how she became a witch… kinda.

She is a manipulative, coniving little brat and i spent the whole story wishing something bad would flihn happen to her. Overall, Alex Flinn’s Bewitching was a wonderful story where good always conquers evil with fairy-tale aspects mixed into the story. I mean, what the heck – he just popped up!
This is really amazing book of characters going through real life. This is only the beginning of her tale, but the main story revolves around Lisette and Emma. Oct 10, Colleen Houck added it Shelves: In her attempts she learns that she is a witch. That’s why I’m a bit shocked when I saw it on our stores and I bought a copy immediately. She is not the mean witch everyone makes her out to be. I adored learning the history of Kendra. Flinn has written many successful remakes of classic faery tales-each and every one of them a joy to read.
But I compensated for this early proficiency by absolutely refusing to read the programmed readers required by the school system — workbooks where you read the story, then answered the questions. Stepmothers get a bum rap, just like witches. But, it’s also a story that adults, at least those young at heart, can enjoy! I think that for me the strongest part of the book is Emma because she is so normal but figures out she does have talents to offer.
Kendra’s only problem is trying to decide if she should try to help Emma magically. While all this is happening the witch catches Kendra and her brother charlie and holes them captive.
But would it matter? By high school, I’d made some friends and gotten involved in various “gifted and talented” performing arts programs. What Flinn does to it was not. Showing of 88 reviews. If she tried — and I mean really tried, not the feeble one or two sentence comebacks, retorts, or responses — then yes, I would root for Emma, but nope she does absolutely nothing.
