Bewitching can be a beast. . . . 
Once, I put a curse on a beastly and arrogant high school boy. That one turned out all right. Others didn’t. 
I go to a new school now—one where no one knows that I should have graduated long ago. I’m not still here because I’m stupid; I just don’t age. 
You see, I’m immortal. And I pretty much know everything after hundreds of years—except for when to take my powers and butt out. 
I want to help, but things just go awry in ways I could never predict. Like when I tried to free some children from a gingerbread house and ended up being hanged. After I came back from the dead (immortal, remember?), I tried to play matchmaker for a French prince and ended up banished from France forever. And that little mermaid I found in the Titanic lifeboat? I don’t even want to think about it. 
Now a girl named Emma needs me. I probably shouldn’t get involved, but her gorgeous stepsister is conniving to the core. I think I have just the thing to fix that girl—and it isn’t an enchanted pumpkin. Although you never know what will happen when I start . . . bewitching

My guest "poster" today is wonderful 11 year old Mikenna. She is my friends daughter and a HUGE fan of the author Alex Flinn. 

Here are her thoughts on Bewitching:

I liked Bewitching because it had numerous stories in it and it had numerous points of view. Kendra told her story and then told the reason why she wrote the book. She's trying to figure out whether or not she should help a girl named Emma who also shares her story. Kendra states reasons why she shouldn't help Emma because of times where she tried to help others but it turned out disastrous. 
I think Bewitching is really clever because it's about a character from a previous book. I like how it tied a whole bunch of fairytales together , though they were a bit twisted so you had to figure out what they were. 

I never knew a book or an author like this could exist, but I'm really glad they do. They keep me reading 24/7. :)
