My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Carolyn MacCullough is extremely talented trying top mold the image of New York City and Witches in a small town not to far away.I thought taking away her birth-right like that but in the end it made Tamsin a better person and finding out her families secrets a little more hurtful. The only reason I gave it such a good review was because I didn’t like the rushed ending. But I think even the beacon of light had her doubts.
Tamsin: She inspires me, making me realize that even if you feel low you can escape to New York City and have your way. I was sad for her knowing that she was meant for greatness and not have it.
Tamsin Greene was born into a family with amazing Talents but when her talents do not arrive on her eighth birthday she feels like an outcast. But after convincing her mom to let her study in the city, her mother reluctantly says yes.
Studying away from she doesn’t feel like a freak, she feels normal. But when she goes back home for Summer Vacation she meets a stranger who asks for help finding something. Even though she has no powers(*sigh*) she tells the stranger that she would do it. What Tamsin doesn’t know that taking on this assignment will help her realize her true potential.
A story where you don’t speak to witches unless its at night at their back door, this startling young woman finds herself being exactly the opposite of normal.
