"How To Succeed at Witchcraft" is a truly captivating and, dare I say, subversive tale that should be getting far more buzz than it currently receiving. If you find the time for just one witch themed work this spooky season, then this book should be that read.

Addressing contemporary social issues in a word where magic is supposed to be the great equalizer was an inspired decision that created an deeply poignant and timely story.

Though a young adult novel, people in their late twenties/early thirties who grew up with Halloweentown and Hocus Pocus will undoubtedly fall in love with the endearingly enchanting world that Brophy has created that weaves magic into a recognizable world with extremely recognizable problems.

Aislinn Brophy is an author to follow and I am already eagerly anticipating her next work. Perhaps a follow-up to How To Succeed at Witchcraft that follows Lex on her next steps or delves deeper into the unrest brewing in Shay's world?
