Nothing is safe around Kristyl Barnette. Windows break. Books rocket across the room. Lights flicker. Strange occurrences follow the 16-year-old everywhere. She's an outcast at her school, but everything changes in the blink of an eye.
When tragedy forces her to move in with her estranged aunt Jodi in the small town of Clearwater, Michigan, Kristyl tries to leave her past behind. She makes friends and catches the attention of Owen Marsh, who accepts her without question and who may be able to understand her better than anyone.
Owen isn't the only one who notices her. The mysteriously alluring Fox Holloway draws Kristyl's eye whenever he's around. And Clearwater High's chief mean girl, Crystal Jamison, has her sights set on Kristyl and will stop at nothing to prove what Kristyl really is.
Magic can be as dangerous as fire, and Aunt Jodi wants Kristyl to have nothing to do with it. But when a mysterious illness threatens her aunt's life, Kristyl will do anything to cure her. Enlisting the help of witches could save Jodi, but is dealing in magic worth the consequences?

Really good listen for anybody who enjoys younger novels and supernatural based story lines. Very entertaining and suspenseful, never a dull moment and ended on a very good cliff hanger ready for the second book to take over
"Amazing YA series"
Learning to understand what was happening Krissa and she was able to get away from her old school
This is a YA series but it is a great book for listeners of all ages. I love getting to see Krissa come into her own. The cliff hanger leaves me wanting more so I can't wait till I can get the next book in the series. I almost listened to this book in one sitting it was so hard to put down.
"Marred by cliff hanger ending"
First book in the Clearwater Witches series.
This is a fairly typical young adult paranormal romance book marred by a cliff hanger ending. The protagonist is a transferred high school student with uncontrolled telekinetic and other psychic abilities. Her mother was recently killed in an automobile accident while her father apparently abandoned her several years before. She discovers there are witches at the high school and she is targeted by them.
The author does a good job of describing her emotions and how she reacts to what is going on around her. Unfortunately, the story ends at a critical stage with a cliff hanger and nothing resolved.
""One Of The most interesting books I ever heard""
Yes, Because It sound more realistic and more exciting than just a normal book!
There is a huge twist that you don't see coming and It's One of the most exciting parts in the book
When Crystal sees her mom come through the front door and the end of the book!
"Crystal Magic, Going into the past changes your future"
The lady reading this used a lot of emotion and expression through her voice, and was never monotone!

If you know the series on rv secret circle. This is very similar. A girl loses her mum ends up in a small town with teen witches and a dad who is alive but not around..
This makes great bedtime listening but is very slow getting into the story,
