Little White Magic (The Girlfriends Series, Book 3) by Jodie Esch Review

Title: Little White Magic
Series: The Girlfriends Series, Book 3
Author: Jodie Esch
Genre: Young Adult
Pages: 191
Price: $0.99 or FREE for Prime Members
Rating: 5 out 5 stars

Book Synopsis:

Rachel and her best friend Steph are spending the summer as junior counselors working at a camp in Vermont. But Rachel's on a mission.

What's a girl supposed to do when she needs a new boyfriend? Enlist the help of a tarot reader, trust the cards and embrace the journey. Spiral into an adventure filled with startling revelations, where nothing is as it appears - and a mysterious, scarred young man's talents seem almost magical.


Where were books like this when I was growing up? In a way the series reminds me of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants in that the main character Rachel learns important life lessons without the story dragging. Little White Magic by Jodie Esch is an excellent read that teaches young girls to never judge a book by its cover - or a boy by his looks. I loved the characters, but I also liked that it was an enjoyable read that had something important to say. I mean, obviously, all young girls (and many older ones) love Twilight, but what message does it give? Little White Magic proves that books written for the YA audience don't have to be brain candy to be enjoyable. I'll definitely be reading more of Jodie Esch and highly recommend her work to anyone that loves young adult fiction.
