Fun teen fantasy with sparkling dialog and great vocabulary

A young adult novel with sparkling dialog, excellent vocabulary, deep characters, plausible crushes and… well, and a paranormal plotline, Jody Gehrman’s Audrey’s Guide to Witchcraft has it all. The story almost reads itself, smoothly written with great voices, wonderful use of language (where else will you read the word “neologisms” and immediately know what it means?), fantastic age-appropriate imagery, depictions of scenery as powerfully evocative as those of magic, and all told in a beautifully consistent voice.
There’s something charmingly natural (and I’m using charm with its non-supernatural meaning) about a teen writing notes on baking chocolate cake in the same book as the recipe for replenishing magical protection. And this novel’s full of natural charm, supernatural terrors, scary bad guys and mysterious strangers, with a hint of mystical powers behind the chanting of curious spells. Plus there’s a great love interest, humor and pathos, and a mysteriously missing Mom.
Highly recommended—I can hardly wait to read what happens next.
 
Disclosure: I was lucky enough to get a free ecopy of this novel when the author was a guest on my blog.
