Glamour by: Andrea Jones

Publication Date: 
March 2014

Stealing the life she's always wanted is as easy as casting a spell.

Townie. That's what eighteen-year-old Christina Sundy is. All year round she lives in a one-stoplight town on Cape Cod, and when summer comes, she spends her days scooping ice cream for the rich tourists she hates. So when one of them takes a job in the ice cream shop alongside her, she's pissed. Why does a blonde and perky Harvard-bound rich girl like Reese Manning want to scoop ice cream anyway?

Something else weird is happening to Christina: tiny blue sparks seem to be shooting off her fingers. It isn't long before she realizes the truth about herself—she's actually a powerful hereditary witch. But her newfound powers are too intense for her to handle and, in a moment of rage, she accidentally zaps Reese into another dimension.

So that no one will notice that the rich girl has disappeared, Christina casts a disguising spell, or "glamour," and lives Reese's life while she tries to find a retrieval spell. But as the retrieval spell proves harder than anticipated, and as she goes about living Reese's life without anyone on the outside noticing the switch, Christina realizes that there's nothing to stop her from making the glamour permanent... except, of course, her fellow witches, a 16th century demon, and, just maybe, her own conscience. 

My thoughts:
I don't get to read too many book that include witches and magic. It just isn't my usual go to. I would prefer something else, but after reading this I think it is time to spread my wings a little(we will see if that happens).
I think this girl is a little to judgmental of others and their wealth. I mean she envies everything they have and would love to live that life but is harsh on her thoughts and ideas of what they are really like. But then to take over her new (rich) friends life because she has done something awful to her is crazy. But so exciting. I really didn't expect things to go done as they did. 

My rating:
4 stars
