Review of Old Magic by Marianne Curley

Old Magic by Marianne Curley:

Kate Warren is instantly enchanted by the new boy, Jarrod Thornton from the very second he steps into the classroom and it is made quickly apparent that he isn't just any normal boy. When he is bullied a storm suddenly forms outside and Kate is the only one who believes he is the one that conjured it. Even Jarrod thinks she’s mad when she begins to confront him with her magical nonsense, but is it? Jarrod can’t deny his attraction towards her, but can he really truly believe everything she is saying is true and if it is will they really be able to jump back in time to fix the curse that is tied deep into his blood?

This book is filled with lovable characters, a love story you can’t resist, knowledge about history, and a knack for making the magical seem real. Along with the world of magic she ties in one of the most common thing any child can relate in and that would be peer pressure and the need to fit into a group. It is nice when a character overcomes such pressures and I think by the end of the book any reader will want to congratulate the main characters at how far they have grown by the end of the book. It’s always a pleasure to see such a development in characters. I give her four stars out of five.

You can learn more about her on her website and buy her books here.
