Spells for Lost Things
by Jenna Evans Welch (Goodreads Author)
Willow has never felt like she belonged anywhere and is convinced that the only way to find a true home is to travel the world. But her plans to act on her dream are put on hold when her aloof and often absent mother drags Willow to Salem, Massachusetts, to wrap up the affairs of an aunt Willow didn’t even know she had. An aunt who may or may not have been a witch.
There, she meets Mason, a loner who’s always felt out of place and has been in and out of foster homes his entire life. He’s been classified as one of the runaways, constantly searching for ways to make it back to his mom; even if she can’t take care of him, it’s his job to try and take care of her. Isn’t it?
Naturally pulled to one another, Willow and Mason set out across Salem to discover the secret past of Willow’s mother, her aunt, and the ambiguous history of her family. During all of this, the two can’t help but act on their natural connection. But with the amount of baggage between them—and Willow’s growing conviction her family might be cursed—can they manage to hold onto each other?
From the New York Times bestselling author of Love & Gelato comes a poignant and romantic novel about two teens trying to find their place in the world after being unceremoniously dragged to Salem, Massachusetts, for the summer.
Spells for lost things by Jenna Evans Welch was simply beautiful. I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it at first but from the moment I finally started reading it this week I was enamored.
I loved all of the tidbits about Salem, the dual point of views, the writing, the storylines with the letters.
I do wish I had a finished copy of the book because there were some spelling mistakes here and there, but I do plan on buying a finished copy sometime in the future.
This was a five star rating. And I did spot one reference to Hocus Pocus. Spells for lost things was simply beautiful. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for allowing chance to read and review. I think Jenna Evans Welch is now an auto buy author for me.
A/N: Thank you for reading!
