But my God, there are better ways to handle things. Throughout the centuries, Kendra occasionally uses her powers bewitchijg aid people, but not always to good effect. Her whole family dies from it, except her little brother whom she saved through magic. Well I think you guys can guess which right? I go to a new school now—one where no one knows that I should have graduated long ago. Sign up here to receive your FREE alerts. The family dynamic is sure to change but for the better or worse is yet to be seen.

Emma tries not to take advantage of Kendra’s powers as her own personal fairy godmother which is a really nice touch.

I bewitcying how Alex Flinn made this a contemporary novel with fairy-tale aspects thrown in here and there. It was, in fact, the best bewitcjing I’ve read in a while. Lisette steals everything from Emma at first, but after her father dies Emma’s mother gets back at her for all the years she’s tortured Emma. She has left no one but bewiitching dying brother. Do I need to read Beastly before I read this book? Beauty is found on the inside as well and she definitely had no inner bewitchong.


Flinn started off well with the story of her family and how she became a witch. I will absolutely be looking back into the other books that this author has written- I am absolutely a fan now!

I like her personality, she’s strong and smart, she loves to help even though everything doesn’t go right and she got blame in the end. This may sound like a lot in a book, but it was not confusing and was very enjoyable. Once, I put a curse on a beastly and arrogant high school boy.

Going more depth into her story was so much fun, and this book was simply wonderful. Nov 05, Loretta rated it it was amazing.


Like literally twice a year. Well, just one thing… decide if you want to be with this boy or not.

I lov If you remember Beastly that was written by this author, then you also remember the witch that was involved in that book named Kendra. For fans of Beastly thinking this is a book about Kendra the witch I’m here to tell that is only partly true.

Burn me at the stake? It gathers a lot of inspiration from children’s fairy tales with a modern, tween twist. She is a manipulative, coniving little brat and i spent the whole story wishing something bad would soon happen to her. Audible Studios on Brilliance Audio Availability: This is really amazing book of characters going through real life.

Bewitching (Kendra Chronicles, #2) by Alex Flinn

They all turned out not well. To stay true to the tale bewitcning had to be a ball somehow and somewhere but the situation in which was decided to put it in, was in my opinion too forced.

The main fairy tales revisited are Hansel and Gretel and Cinderella and Alex Flinn has taken both of these tales and twisted them into a fantastical new tale.

BEWITCHING by Alex Flinn | Kirkus Reviews

Certainly if it was given more space to one story instead of putting in so many short retellings, the finale might have been worked out longer, giving space to explain better what was happening, like the beginning. When I was five years old, my mom said that I should be an author.

I thought this type of writing is amazing. It was too close to the end of the book and so little pages remained. Now because this is Alex Flinn, Cinderella is not the only fairytale in the book. Yeah, so Kendra should help her. That really made me angry because of the message it’s sending out to people. View all 13 comments. It enrages me because if it were me I would not have cared if she told about me busting up the pumpkin.


Her latest project is Emma and her step sister who is truly evil and out to ruin Emma’s life. Next, the writing style.

From her finding out that she’s a witch, to her in The Princess and the Pea, to The Little Mermaid, all the way to the Titanic, and finally to present day, Kendra’s journeys were always fast-paced and fascinating. After I came back from the dead Immortal, remember?!
