Three Black Swans by Caroline B. Cooney
Missy and her cousin Claire are best friends who finish each other’s sentences and practically read each other’s minds. It’s an eerie connection—so eerie that Missy has questions she wants to put to her parents. But she’s afraid to ask.
White Magic: Spells to Hold You by Kelly Easton
After Chrissie's dad dies, her mom moves them to California to remarry. Chrissie's lonely new life is transformed when the amazing Yvonne jumps out of her apartment door and pulls Chrissie inside to join Yvonne and Karen in their coven of "good witches." Yvonne is part gypsy, and somehow wiser than other kids her age. Karen is sweet, shy, and madly in love with the wrong boy. Alone, each girl is an outsider; but when the friends share their powers and cast spells to help each other, a kind of magic starts to happen.
This sounds like a fun book to distract from me from all the serious stuff I'm surrounded with in life. A nice little witch book. . . Or is it? We'll see! I'll probably read this after Three Black Swans.
