Book Review:
Family Magic by Patti Larsen is the first book by the author that I have read and I am so glad I got to know about Patti Larsen through this tour.

This book is about a teenage witch who, although, part of a coven just wants to be a normal teenager but despite all her wishes to be normal, everything about her is abnormal. Her mother is the leader of a powerful coven, her father's a demon and then she is faced with a crisis that demands her participation with all her magic involved. 
What will happen to Syd now?
Will she ever get her wish of being a normal girl?

Family Magic is all about Syd and her trials and tribulations as a teenager witch. I loved Syd and empathized with her problems. Despite being a witch, her problems are so commonplace and definitely ones that we all have experienced in our lives. 

Patti's writing style is simple, expressive and while I normally don't like books written in the first person, I enjoyed this one. The scenes just flowed and created a mental picture in my mind. I was able to understand Syd's life as it was and empathize with her future hopes for herself. The story moved at a moderate pace and kept me hooked right till the end. I read this book cover to cover and look forward to reading the subsequent books in this series.

I don't want to give away anything but will close my review by saying that Family Magic is an entertaining book that will be enjoyed by everyone. 4 out of 5 to it and recommended to book lovers even those who generally don't read YA. I loved Patti's writing style and will be checking out her other books too.



I received the book from the author and the tour organizers and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
