The author comes up with an imaginative story behind the origin of Halloween. Don't let that documentary on the origins of Halloween that has aired on the History Channel prevent you from enjoying this cautionary tale.
The prologue make me chuckle because its protagonist was honest about being a jerk. On the other hand, the fate of Chloe Hallow, a girl determined to get Jacob Hope, the classmate of her dreams, is not funny. Certainly classmates Maggie and Peter weren't laughing.
The teachers and librarian thought they had set safeguards to prevent students from misusing certain spells. Unfortunately, their safeguards were no match for Chloe's determination and Maggie's helpfulness.
A very foolish mayor only makes things worse. Much, much worse. I could see this story becoming a half-hour episode on a spooky teen show. Happy horrors!
I received this book through Librarything member giveaway in exchange for this review.

I really enjoyed this little story. It had a great story line and included a wonderful group of characters. I was confused at the end though. I couldn't figure out if Chloe was supposed to be with Maggie or what. It was clear that Maggie was hot for Chloe, but she married Peter. I highly recommend this short story for anyone who loves Halloween (Samhein)and a good love story. Even if the main character uses magic to trick the object of her desire.

This is a cute story that delves into the beginning of Halloween. The story puts a nice new spin onto an old holiday without trampling any of the modern legends but still adds a nice love story gone bad. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to more writings of this author.
