It all started when Libby’s parents got a letter from her grandparents saying Libby’s grandfather was ill (Libby didn’t even know she had a grandfather). Libby soon found herself travelling to Germany with her parents to visit and care for her sick grandfather. What she found in Germany was a lot more than what she expected! Libby finds out that she is from a line of witches and that her mother is a witch. A series of weird things start to happen. First she finds that her grandfather already passed away, next her parents are poisoned and kidnapped and she doesn’ know which relative to trust!
Overall I thought this story was awesome! The characters in the book were great and you really got to know them. Libby is a great main character. She is smart and loyal. I did find that the beginning of the book was a little confusing (there were things that were explained later in the book, maybe because I am a kid, I found it a little confusing). I like the adventure and the fact it wasn’t too scary or violent. I really like how Libby kept finding more and more about her family and who she really was. I think boys and girls will like the book. It is a very fun story and I hope that this turns into a series because this is a really great book and I know that it could stop at one book, but I would like to learn more about what happens next with Libby!
