The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
Reading children and teen oriented literature is a guilty pleasure of mine. I love a good story, and many times adult literature is too deep and convoluted for me. I like a relatively simple story that I can follow easily, especially if there's a little mystery and/or magic thrown in. So, I was very excited to have the opportunity (and excuse) to read The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball.

My Take
I really don't want to give away the plot or you won't need to read the book yourselves, so I'm going to talk about the book in general rather than specifics. First of all, this is a great book for teen girls. The depicts high school age girls so well - their speech, actions, thoughts, etc. It really brought me back to the "good old days" of high school. Oh man, just thinking about what I would have given back then for a pink crystal ball just like the one in the book (and what I would have done with it) makes me smile! The book is very well written and held my attention. I actually read it in the course of one day, since I couldn't put it down. I think my husband was wondering what on earth I was reading, because I didn't want to do anything else. And honestly, I'd read it again. The plot is very well thought out with enough twists and mysteries to keep you wanting more. The main characters are lovable, and you are rooting for them the whole time. I highly recommend buying this book for your favorite teenage girl to read!

The author of the book, Risa Green, has two other novels published - one about pregnancy and the other about raising a baby. I would love to read both of them! They even made a TV show based upon her book Notes From the Underbelly.

Cost: You can buy The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball on Amazon.com for $8.99. ($$$)

Overall: We give The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball a 10/10!

One very lucky reader will win a copy of The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball!
