Review: Hex Education by Emily Gould and Zareen Jaffery

Sophie Stone doesn't want to leave the bright lights of LA for the dreary little burg of Mythic, Massachusetts. So why, then, does she feel eerily drawn to the place? And why, after she crosses the county line, does she begin having headaches, accompanied by strange and frightening visions? At least school is a bright spot--Sophie is immediately accepted by the coolest, most popular, best-dressed girls at Mythic High. But what she doesn't know is that her new friends don't buy their couture--they conjure it! They're a coven of witches, formed to save the town from an evil that is rising, an evil that was foretold decades ago. And Sophie is their leader!Will Sophie embrace her powers and save the town? Or is Mythic totally hexed?


I can describe Hex Education in one word...Refreshing. Young Adult books for me is a breath of fresh air. I know I've said it before but I still want to say it. Hehehe.

This book was a fun and quick read for me. The story was very simple and laid back, but the authors witty repartee will glue you in on this well-crafted book with their ingenious story telling.

I was smiling and laughing as I flip the pages. Sophie, the main character is hilarious and easy going, her cleverness will make you want to read her more and more. She's really funny.

So if you are looking for a fun read, get this one and I know you'll love it as much as I did. I am beseechingly reaching out to both authors to write a sequel to this amazing book. Please. Hehehe. I.Want.More. Cheerz!

My Rating:5 Stars
