Also another thing i loved about the book, all the historical notes she put into this. There are mentions of drinking, allusions to sex but mostly stuff that kids see on television today. The story also make a side trip to visit the Titanic and place The Little Mermaid on board. She writes with such skill and brilliance that I was completely drawn into the book. Every event in my life after this would be different finn I would have been kissed.
BEWITCHING by Alex Flinn | Kirkus Reviews
From the characters POV in the stories Kendra recants we get a feeling for their lives and their times, but what I love the most was the retelling and manipulating of classic fairy tale From Beastly to her own series, Kendra is a witch on her own mission in beewitching.
Flinn skillfully keeps sympathy firmly with Emma, making readers cheer for her. Since she miraculously saved her brother from a disease that wasn’t curable, they decide to laex away. The writing is fast paced and I absolutely loved Emma.

Right now, I live half a mile away from my old middle school, in Palmetto Bay, a suburb of Miami, with my husband, daughters, dogs, and cats. I want to help, but things just go awry in ways I could never predict. Sure, there were parts entirely devoted to her, but still, Flnn would’ve enjoyed really getting to know her instead of just brief glimpses of her past deeds.
She mope and just watches her world be stolen away. In Bewitching, we get to read about how Kendra became a witch and her life before Beastly. I think no matter what the villian wil always be ugly whether they are flihn or not. See all 8 questions about Bewitching…. The overall romance — especially at the end — was cheesy.

Now a girl named Emma needs me.
Bewitching (Kendra Chronicles, book 2) by Alex Flinn
Flinn has written many successful remakes of classic faery tales-each and every one of them a joy to read. I think I may have become a permanent fan of Alex Flinn. Lisette is around her age and is everything that Emma is not. Maybe I cared a little about Emma but honestly, I felt no sympathy for flinn sob story.
I went to the library and took out books on writing. Most of the time the books aren’t that good, but I can’t seem to stop myself from snatching up the next one I see in the high hopes that this one will be better.
Because she is so sweet and seems innocent and broken, Lisette Cinderella? It involves romance, drama, even death. Preview — Bewitching by Alex Flinn. Well first off, it is not your average Cinderella story.
We never really find out anything except his parents are getting a divorce. Y finalmente volvemos con Emma y Lisette y nos quedamos con ellas. This romance had some potential… and that potential was tossed out the window followed by a gun down of a dozen Uzis so that the plots structure and the romance in the story felt weak and riddled with holes. Burn me at the stake? These fairy tale retellings are short- they are brief fun retellings that take some of my favorite fairy tales into new settings The Little Mermaid- come on!
It would have been the same story if they weren’t there, honestly.
Which brings us to the gingerbread house. Let me just start off by sayig this book was just the type of book I love to read.
I will absolutely be looking back into the bewitcbing books that this author has written- I am absolutely a fan now! A todas luces este va a ser otro retelling y es claramente el de la Cenicienta. One time, in middle school, a famous author came to talk to our class and give a writing workshop.
Emma is smart, plain, and not very cool. Kendra has to try and outwit the witch and escape. She gives her loads of chores and gives Emma her car and clothes, things that were rightfully hers anyway.
But when Lisette goes too far in her effort to destroy Emma, she decides to step in and help. Along the way bewicthing finds a house made out of gingerbread. Alex Flinn has really created a story that will have you bewitched, and leave you wanting more.
I felt really connected to Emma, mainly because she’s a lot like me, she loves to read and watch Jeopardy.
