The Midnight Spell by Rhiannon Frater & Kody Boye
Publication date: February 26th, 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal
Adam and Christy have been best friends since kindergarten. Always the perpetual outsiders in their small town in Texas, they’ve always had to deal with nasty comments from their classmates. Adam is called “gay” while Christy is called “witch.”
On both counts the bullies are right.
Their junior year in high school seems destined to be the same old same old until Christy decides to cast a love spell for Adam at the midnight hour. The next day an alluring and mysterious new boy enrolls at school and sets hearts a flutter, including Adam’s. Meanwhile, Christy’s mad crush on the handsome Ian seems to be going nowhere fast. Struggling to capture the heart of Ian while trying to come into her full witch powers is tough enough, but when a great evil arrives in town that threatens everything they hold dear, she realizes that finding a boyfriend is the least of her and Adam’s worries.
Soon Adam, Christy, their potential love interests, and their good friends Drifter and Olivia, will have to battle a force of darkness that has killed in their town before and will again.
Being from a small town in Texas Christy and Adam have always been considered outsiders. Since kindergarten they have been best friends and took up for each other. Now in their Junior year of high school the taunts and being picked on continue. It's hard for Christy because everyone calls her a witch and call Adam gay. Everyone is right to call them that because they are. One night Christy decides to do a love spell for Adam for him to find a love. Even tho Adam doesn't believe it will work because he isn't to sure of her being a real witch a mysterious new boy shows up and school and soon he and Adam are a couple. Things should be great considering Christy's long time crush Ian seems to be paying attention to her now as well. Things aren't perfect and the two soon need help from their friends Olivia and Drifter because there is a darkness in the town that they must stop.
I have to say I love Adam. I want him to have a wonderful guy sweep him off his feet. He is so sweet and even if he is short he won't back down from anyone. Christy is so awesome she has secrets no one knows everything about and she is just now hitting her witch puberty so to say. She is so loyal to Adam and the two have a friendship that is so amazing. They do whatever they can for each other even if they do interfere with each other sometimes. You don't mess with one of them that you don't get the other. Olivia I adored from the moment she showed up at school and the end of the book had me loving her.Drifter kind of kicks back and is part of everyones crowd.He is there to help when he can. He just seems like such a nice guy. I don't want to keep rambling about all the characters cause there is so many great ones but I will say I love Christy's parents and Adam's mom. They all are so fantastic and love to embarrass their kids but won't let anyone mess with them.
I was so thrilled to get to read this book. Both authors did a fantastic job working together to make a wonderful story. I read this book in one sitting cause I could not put it down. It is written in such a way that the pages turn if by magic. I love the plot of this story. You really don't get to see a friendship like Adam and Christy share very often in books. You get to see just how close they are to each other. Christy has some funny moments as she always get flustered around her crush and her parents embarrassing her. As a force seems to be after her she has to figure out just what it is and why it seems to be after her. It also seems to be after Adam and is trying to drive them apart. I really don't want to give spoilers so I am trying not to. You have a teen witch, an evil darkness and all kinds of kids acting strange. It is up to a bunch of teens to figure it out, stop the darkness and keep Christy's parents from finding out. Throw in a spying broom and a nosy cat and you have one wonderful story. I love the different paranormal things the authors put in the book and several of them I would have never thought of but loved!! It wraps up very nicely but I really hope they write more of these books because I am in love with this one.
