   Perfect for 2nd Graders
I bought a book for my child. It was difficult to find chapter books that matched her reading level because she was slightly behind. Chapter books were either too young or old for her. This is the first book that she has been able to read without difficulty. She can't wait to read when she gets home from school. She gushes about the book to her older sister and it sounds like she's enjoying the story line as well.
   Beware of dark undertones and bad examples!
I didn't like the book's moral standards and dark tone. One of the main characters paints bloody tears on her face as she dreams of being a witch, but the book is geared toward 6 and 7 year olds. Two girls go on an adventure to get revenge and cast a curse on one of their siblings and a grouchy old neighbor. I won't be buying another book from this series because I was not a fan of this one.
   Mean spirited.
The book will be about friendship in unexpected places. The characters end up mean to other, planning how to run away from home, being disrespectful to adults, and talking about how sisters are always awful to each other.
   Bad attitudes and bad behavior.
I didn't think it was appropriate for a third graders. It had bad attitudes. I didn't want my daughter to read it.
   Parents Beware
This book is misleading and deceptive because the book description is far cry from the innocence that it attempts to portray. The cover and the first few chapters of this book do not indicate that it promotes witchcraft and bad behaviors. Ivy was cool until she discovered her interest in magic. The book is a good reminder to think about the company you keep.
   No hero’s in this book.
If you want your girls to learn how to name call, be mean to siblings, be self- centered, and learn how to be a witch, then this book is for you. The chapters are just the right length, the page layout with text, sketches and white space is great, and the idea of two girls starting a friendship is a wonderful plot.
   Ugh. The worst.
The naughtiness of the characters in the book is celebrated. They are mean and lie to people. As a parent, I can't read this to my kids at night because it's too realistic. Don't behave like these kids, good night!
