Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bewitching I found this book was very entertaining. You just can't put it down until it is finished. I simply laughed and morned along with the delightful characters in this book about a miss fit girl in a school filled with witches in training. Mildreds hatered for Ethel Hollow is apparent in every part of this book. I recomend it for all of the Harry Potter readers pick it up before you miss a chance of a life time.
