Once a Witch

Happy Wednesday!

Title: Once a witch

Author: Carolyn MacCullough

Rating: 5 stars

Review: Tasmin Greene isn't like her family. That is, she doesn't have any Talents or special powers. On Tasmin's 8th birthday her Talent was supposed to show, but Tasmin never gained a Talent. Now Tasmin goes to Prep School on New York to escape the shuns of her family. But when Tasmin becomes in an acquaintance with a professor that wants her to find something, she pretends that she has talents. But what Tasmin doesn't know us that she is unlocking one of her family's greatest secrets and the truth about herself. And that could be good or bad.

This was an amazing book! I loved it from the moment I picked it up.

Tasmin was a great character who was full of life and wasn't afraid of much. She always had a mouth that talked back a lot which was entirely hilarious. Tasmin had a large dysfunctional family that had it's many quirks and I liked learning all their talents. Her grandmother was one if my favorite characters she was just so sweet and grandmotherly. Even though she was asleep, for reasons I will not tell! I loved Tasmin's friend Gabriel! He was so sweet and he watched out for Tasmin! He is definitely a friend I would want to have!

The plot was very nice too and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed the adventure, the fantasy, and of course the time travel aspect of the story. I liked how everything flowed smoothly together and it just clicked!

I can't wait for the sequel because I absolutely loved Once a Witch!
