Book Blurb:
move over, hogwarts...High school is different for everyone. For some, it’s a time to shine, and for others, a time to survive. Then there are the students who attend those special schools for the gifted. But what if there was a school that catered to those rarest of students—those who can do magic?These fourteen tales explore the challenges that students of the magical arts may face in a high school of their very own. If you think chemistry is tough, try alchemy. If you ever fell victim to a school bully, how would you deal with a bully gifted with powerful magic? And if you needed more time to study, what spell could give you all the time you desired?These are just a few of the magical adventures that will await you when you enter Salem Township Public High School #4— otherwise known as Witch High...

The name of her story is Boil and Bubble and it's about a young male witch named Kyle whose father moved him to Salem just before his senior year in high school. :)

Ooh, I can't wait for this anthology! I like a lot of the authors included, and it sounds like fun.

Hi Karen - It does sound like fun. Hope you get a chance to read it. :)

Hi Kimberly! This is a young adult novel, right? I'm thinking my 13 y.o. daughter would love to read this right before Halloween!

Kimberly Swan said...

Hi Christine - I originally thought it was, but DAW (Penguin Group) has it listed as 18 and up.

Hello! Debra Dixon here. I'm chiming in a little late but the stories I've read and the story I've written would all be suitable for any teen. Can't vouch for all of them, but I'm guessing a 13 year-old can handle them.
