BESWITCHED WITCH BY MOLLY SNOW
Publisher: Breezy Reads
BLURB from Goodreads
When the sassy black cat, Surla, ends up crossing paths with her ex-witch, the outrageous and hot-tempered Idis, it triggers again the curse of being BeSwitched.
Idis was supposed to be dead in a drawer at the morgue, and Surla was supposed to be having some bonding time with her new human best friend, Cathy. Instead, these two enemies are forced to get along or stay switched forever while in search for the last spell book... If only the curious and handsome new guy in school, Jax Morreau, would stop distracting Surla from their plan.
This book is BK 2 in the Beswitched Series by Molly Snow. It is aimed at the middle grade aged children to young teens. It is once again a funny tale about surla the cat switching with someone else.this time Srla switches with Idis, much to Idis' distaste. Idis hates her life as a cat and seems to begin to understand how badly she had treat Surla. Will it make Idis truly change her ways? Who knows lol.
So now Surla gets to experience school with Cathy instead of as Cathy as she did in BK1.
Cathy is however very caught up with her now boyfriend Todd. So surla still ends up feeling lonely even as a human.
In this book we are introduced to Jax and his father, Godfrey, who are both Warlocks. What does Godfrey want with Surla why is he paying her so much attention.
Well you will have to find out about Godfreys rather devious plan by reading the book!
Once again Molly writes in a great simplistic way that should make the middle grade reader literally race through the book. Molly also leaves the reader wanting to know what elae can happen to Surla next? Could she Beswitch again and with whom?
The cover adds to the comedy type of feel about the book. The cover features Surla in her mistress Idis' body, after the major makeover she gives the body! in the background I would say it is Jax looking on at Surla.
Did I enjoy the book? Yes at the age this is aimed for I would have literally eaten up the book! Would I recommend? Yes Would I read more? To review for Molly and to help you guys out there with picking your books for middle graders/young teens of course!
