Review- BeSwitched Witch by Molly Snow

BeSwitched Witch
by Molly Snow
Available Now

Idis, a hot-tempered witch, was pronounced dead Halloween night. Her runaway cat, Surla, has a horrific premonition-come-true, when Idis escapes the morgue and then a mental hospital. These two enemies unexpectedly cross paths in the woods, triggering the curse of being BeSwitched.

A powerful opportunity comes with Surla switching bodies with her witch. She can dominate the now little black furball, giving her an education, teaching her patience and taking the shrew to the salon for a fun makeover.

The two go to high school together, when Surla passes as a teenage girl with a little help from magic. When Surla is magnetically drawn to the curious new guy, Jax Morreau, she is infatuated. Could ravens, coffins or a cursed ring keep Surla away from her invitation to the Morreau Family Reunion at Lake Sequoia? An ancient mystery will be revealed, but at what cost?

           ****Contains Spoilers if you have not read BeSwitched-the first book in the series*******

This is a sequel to the first book BeSwitched I reviewed on Monday here.  BeSwitched Witch is a completely different book. As you might have guessed, at the end of BeSwitched, Cathy and Surla switch back and Surla is a black cat once again. (I told you there would be spoilers!)  In a showdown with Idis at the end of BeSwitched, Idis was thought to have died in a fire and is in the drawer in the morgue when BeSwitched Witch  begins. Surla can't quite believe it, to be rid of Idis who always treated her so badly.  Meanwhile, Idis wakes up, gets out of the drawer and  is being chased by a security guard at the morgue and tased in the butt!

Then one day, Surla accidentally crosses paths with Idis who is very much alive and has escaped the mental hospital they put her in when she told them she was a witch.  Once again Surla is BeSwitched, this time taking over Idis' body and Idis becomes Surla, the cat.  Now it's Idis' turn to learn what it's like to be a cat.  Surla enjoys being a teenager with her friend Cathy and they give Idis' body a makeover including an embarrassing pedicure and extensions.  Then they work some magic on her beak nose and she's a beautiful young teenage girl.  Magically Idis, the cat, is allowed to go to school with Surla where she becomes infatuated with the new boy who always seems to be in trouble.

There was absolutely nothing predictable about this book. Finding a finger in a fish with an old ring on it. Curses making people sick. Flying frog guts in the science class all over the teacher. Fights with jocks. Visits to the principal's office. Bad boy crushes. Shape shifters. Warlocks.  There just wasn't any guessing where this story was going. I was caught up as soon as the switch happened and Idis started reaping what she'd been sowing for 300 years!  Then things got really interesting.  It was never ending action and the ending was a cliff hanger!! I'm hoping Molly already has the next book written.  This was a quick fun read and these stories are becoming highly addictive!

This one was perfectly acceptable for any MG or YA reader.  No bad words, no sex, just some light romance and some pranks.  And of course magic!
