Blurb (from Goodreads):
Welcome to Shadow Springs. You're going to be sorry you ever set foot here
Abigail Harper has had it rough. She’s lost everything she’s ever loved. Her parents. Her home. And, eventually, her best friend. Afraid of almost everything and tormented at school by the only one she ever called friend, Abigail doesn’t think life could get any worse.
She soon realizes that life could get much worse. In fact, it could become an absolute catastrophe. During a cruel prank and in a moment of terrible weakness, Abigail makes a wish. And to her astonishment and utter horror, the wish comes true. And it brings with it monstrous consequences.
Now, she’s been shuffled halfway across the country, to a small New England town that not even the Internet seems to have a record of. And from the moment she arrives, Abigail knows something's off - maybe even seriously wrong - about the mysterious Shadow Springs. Full of secrets, dark surprises and a sinister presence that seems hellbent on her destruction, Abigail must turn to a strange group of girls to find answers: The Lost Girls.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a YA paranormal story featuring witches.
I felt quite sorry for Abigail in this story, as the bullying she suffered really wasn’t nice, and it had obviously affected her deeply.
The storyline in this was okay, but I felt like it was diluted a bit by the slowness of the pace, and it seemed to take a long while for things to happen or for things to come to light, I think I’d have enjoyed the book more if it hadn’t been quite so drawn out.
There was a little smidgen of romance in this, but nothing really came of it.
The ending to this was a satisfying ending, but it also left plenty of room for further books.
6 out of 10.
