The Teen Wytche Saga #3 
By Ariella Moon   

Summary New school. New friends. New reputation. High school sophomore Ainslie Avalon-Bennett works hard to hide her Crazy Girl past. But as long as her best friend’s disappearance remains unsolved, she can’t shake the depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder that once landed her in a mental ward.   Ainslie’s tenuous control over her life shatters when her warring parents ditch her at Christmas. While they take a cruise to “work things out,” Ainslie must spend the holiday in Palm Springs with her aunt and uncle, owners of a struggling Mystery School and occult store. Plunged into the world of fire fortunes, dragons, entity eaters, and an ailing spell book, Ainslie is well beyond her comfort zone. Then she meets a boy who spikes her pulse and calms her OCD. But will she lose him once he discovers her past? Or will his deadly secret, hidden in plain view, be their undoing?

Ariella Moon writes about magic, friendship, secrets, and love in her Young Adult novels, Spell Check, Spell Struck, and Spell Fire, Books 1, 2, & 3 in The Teen Wytche Saga. Ariella spent her childhood searching for a magical wardrobe that would transport her to Narnia. Extreme math anxiety, and taller students who mistook her for a leaning post, marred Ariella’s teen years.

An author and shaman, she now lives a nearly normal life with her extraordinary daughter, shamelessly spoiled dog, and an enormous dragon.

Excerpt:  Thor shifted position, and his knee grazed my leg. A tingle skyrocketed up my thigh. "What about you?" he asked. "Harboring any secret talents?"
Does obsessive hand washing and dragon melding count?" Just amazing accuracy with throwing stars."
Thor blinked and his head jerked. "Get out of here! Aren't they illegal?"

"Sort of." My stomach grew queasy at the thought of doing a year in prison. 
"I'm shocked." Thor massaged a spot behind and below his left ear. 
One. Two. Three. Four. His outdoorsy tan had retreated behind an ashen pallor and sweat droplets glistened along his hairline. My worry meter cranked on. The throwing stars shocked him? How would he feel about my stint in the lockdown ward?

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!
**Received the ebook as part of the blog tour for an honest review

Okay the cover definitely attracts me because it is looks magically and has a dragon….very beautifully done.

When I started this book, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it because Ainslie didn’t seem like she was going to be a character I was going to love.  She was afraid of everything, and she was throwing a fit in the beginning.  However, she came into her own and showed a kind heart & persevered in helping her family & new friends.  I loved watching her personality grow and seeing all her strengths come alive. 

I think Ainslie’s aunt and uncle are a hoot, and I think it would be cool to visit their store.  Jett, his sister, and Thor are great characters too.  I would love to live in the world that Ariella creates.

I think the author does a great job of showing how OCD affects a teenager, and it might help others to be more tolerant and learn about how OCD works and affects a person who has it. 

This is definitely a series I’m going to read in its entirety.  I am going to get book 1 & 2 soon, so I can read them, but I really can’t wait to read book 4 when it comes out :)

I highly recommend this book to all who love a good adventure with some morals and life lessons mixed in with their magic & dragons.
