Quote: “I don’t know… It’s just that I don’t seem to get along with anyone. And now it’s Friday and everyone is going to this one girl’s birthday party … It just sucks.”



Katie Peridot quite likes being ordinary.
Unfortunately, some very out-of-the-ordinary things have been happening to her. On top of this her best friend, Mayuri, isn’t her best friend anymore, a sinister sponsorship programme is taking over her school, her mother is acting more crazy than usual and the only person who really seems to understand her is a peculiar cleaning lady. Then she teams up with Themba, the cleverest (and most unpopular) boy at school, and together their investigation takes them deep into the town’s abandoned mine.
What they find there is more terrible than they could have imagined. Can they save Witchfield before it’s too late?



My Review: 

Witchfield is one of the cutest and coolest stories for young tween/ teens to read! Katie, our main character (the protagonist), goes through a rollercoaster ride of weirdness. Her mother believing in magical witches and her best friend acting stranger than ever and closing off their beautiful friendship aren’t the only things going out of the ordinary, nope.  Strangeness increases. Katie must team up with the smartest boy in school, who everyone will absolutely adore, in order to make the most awesome discovery in an abandoned mine. How cool? I found this story to grab me and pull me into its world for the whole day. I could not get my nose out of it! Do you think witches are real? Do you think something could’ve caused such crazy, cursed events?

I highly recommend this book!!!
