    1. Dumb-cute, in an entirely acceptable sense. Prudence has the sort of witchy powers that most people would love to have—very little is off-limits. She can undo stains with the wave of a hand, teleport, stop time, levitateor at least she can do all of this in theory. In practice, Prudence's parents (witchy mother, mortal father) have raised her in the very mortal world of Beverly Hills, and moving to Salem, MA, is a huge leap out of her comfort zone. In California, Prudence was expected to hide [...]


    2. What I noticed in this book is that the girl at first hates that she has to move. and in the end she wants to stay and I think that it shows feelings and emotions change.I think it is a great book if you like reading about witches.


    3. Reviewed by Me for TeensReadTooFor Prudence Stewart, sixteen, leaving behind her home and school in Beverly Hills to move to Salem, Massachusetts, is more than just an inconvenience. She's worked for years to get where she is--which is near the top of the Beverly Hills High School popularity list. Right before she was to be named the youngest head cheerleader ever, her parents announced the move to Salem. It seems that Pru's younger brother, Dorklock (or, if you prefer, Tobias), needs to attend [...]


    4. No Matter How You Spell It At Beverly Hills High, Prudence Stewart was a shoe-in for head cheerleader. She had the perfect grades and the perfect guy to drool over until her mom and dad decided it was time for Pru and her brother to start learning to use the magic they've been denied for years. Which means not just leaving behind sunny California for dull Massachusetts but leaving behind the only lifestyle they've really known. While her little brother might be totally okay with the change, Pru [...]


    5. Prudence Stewart just received the worst news she’s ever heard. Just when she had it all: straight A's, a hot crush, and picked as captain of the cheerleading squad her parents announce they're moving from their posh Beverly Hills home to Salem, Massachusetts. Pru’s annoying little brother, otherwise known as Dorklock, is going through growing pains with a twist. He can’t control is magic around mortals so the family is forced to leave. Now Pru is miserable and if you can believe it she’ [...]


    6. More like, 1.5Not a bad book, but it is very juvenile. And Prudence is just a spoiled brat. Also very shallow. Although, to be honest, I prefer a shallow brat over a Mary Sue. But she complains a lot, and although she is not an orphan (thankfully), her mother is pretty useless. Yes, her mother is a good witch, etc, but how come couldn't she at least advice her daughter before inscribing her in a witch school at 16? When all her life, Prudence had to behave like a normal teen? And then, bam! you [...]


    7. Pru has to leave her Beverly Hills High School and the head cheerleader spot at her school because her brother hit puberty and his magic has gone awry. Yep, magic, as in witches. To prevent said brother from creating some disaster, the family decides to relocate to Salem and put both kids in Witch School so they can develop their magic. So suddenly Pru leaves a world where she had to hide the little bit of magic she knew to a place where she is, dare we say it, remedial. Forget being head cheerl [...]


    8. Prudence had the life she always wanted in Beverly Hills. She was 16, popular and the head cheerleader of her school. Her mother was a witch and her father was mortal and her little brother was a warlock unable to hide or control his powers any longer so they packed up and moved to Salem Massachusetts. St. Agatha's school for withes was their final destination. Pru was in remedial classes cause she was never allowed to practice magic, she could not even conjure herself a lunch. With the help of [...]


    9. Prudence is a Beverly Hills teenager with very good grades, good looks, nice clothes, plenty of friends and the position of head cheerleader on their award-winning squad. She has parents that loves her and a life every girl would want. But that life soon changes. Pru's mom is a graduate of Agatha's Day School for Witches, located in Salem, Massachusetts. She thinks her son and daughter need to be trained in the art of witchcraft before all goes awry, so she sends them to witch school. In Salem, [...]


    10. Prudence is a straight A student, captain of the cheerleading team, and "was" the girlfriend of the cutest guy at Beverly Hills HIgh. But one day her mom tells her that she's a witch and that she is moving to where she grew up. Prudence's mom is trying her best to get the good out of moving(with the indoor pool, letting her choose her room, and more). There was one time where she told her best friend that she was a witch and her mom had to brainwash her mind. Prudence grew up not being able to u [...]


    11. This book was really pretty stupid. I read the whole thing hoping it would get better, but it never did. Pru was a really annoying character, and I could care less about her. Probably the most irritating thing in this book was that every chapter began with "text-speak" between her and her old best friend. Maybe I'm just too old, but my brain does not easily decipher text-speak, and frankly I don't even understand why it's so popular. It takes MORE effort to spell things in weird, abbreviated sen [...]


    12. This is a frothy little teen fiction book, that is nevertheless enjoyable. Prudence, who majored in teen politics and cheerleading in 90210 is forced to move to Salem, Ma because it is a safe place for her brother who can't seem to hide the magic that runs in their family of witches. Cast out of her role as Beverly Hills Head Cheerleader, she quickly discovers that 16 years of being prohibited to use magic places her in the bottom of her class when it comes to using magic and even witch-style ch [...]


    13. This book is pretty good and I cant wait to read the next one. I gave it four stars because it is very slow in the beginning. Then it gets better and slow again. I love Samuel if only he would take off his glasses! That would be so much better and then maybe he could get Prudence to actually like him! Maybe they will get together in the other books. But I do hope that Pru gets a love interest, to spice things up. Someone who is not Daniel because I doubt he's going to be in any of the other book [...]


    14. I loved this series as a young teen and rereading is just as much fun now! It's a WAAAY more "realistic" version of a teen's magic school than any other I've read. Pru is a likeable (though sometimes whiney) girl who really does work hard to succeed and surrounds herself with interesting and (in most cases) likeable characters. This book sets the tone for rest of the series but takes place over a very short space of time so it feels odd when it ends.


    15. It's probably unfair of me to give 3 stars to a book that was clearly not written for a middle aged audience. I really liked McClymer's Must Love Black and thought I would go ahead read this series about a teenaged girl who is uprooted from her "kewl" life in Beverly Hills as The It Girl, and moved to Salem, Mass to start training as a witch. I found myself getting really annoyed at the superficiality of this uprooted popular girl, but did enjoy the whole fish out of water theme.


    16. Another recommendation from my 10 year old daughter. And this one was really funs written for teens but very fun. I used to LOVE the show Bewitched and there was just the tiniest bit of reminder while I was reading this for some reason. Really enjoyed this quick read and I will definitely be reading the second book.


    17. I really enjoyed this book. It is one of those books to read when your looking for that cute YA book. One thing I thought was very relatable about this book was that the main character hates that she has to move, but in the end she ends up being happy. A good book with a thing many people can relate too. I do admit I got a little annoyed with the book, that at times it felt mind numbing.


    18. Pru is devasted when she learns that because her brother can't control his magic, they all have to move back to the Northeast and attend her mother's witch school. So she concocts a brilliant plan to become just as popular as she was at her old school by joining the cheerleading team here too, not realizing that her magic classes might be too much for her to keep up with.


    19. This is one of those typical teen books. But in the end you still enjoy it. The book is decent paced it goes from fast to slow. The characters you meet in the book are all likable. One thing I wished for the book is a love triangle. Who doesn't love a typical teen read with a love triangle. Quick and oddball read. Definitely plan to pick up the second book.


    20. The Salem Witch Tryouts by Kelly McClymer is a fantastic book that gives a great twist to normal stories about witches and wizards. Although the characters are made up the author did a wonderful job of making them come to life and jump right off of the page. The book is an amazing story and a fantastic way to spend a rainy day. -YSO


    21. This book was a nice quick read and i liked Prudence and her voice. i liked the situation Prudence was in, even though this book did remind me of Sabrina the Teenage Witch meet Bring it On: All or Nothing. still enjoyed it and i like Daniel.


    22. I liked it and would like to read the other two in the series. Although, Pru got on my nerves every once and a while with her, "I've gotta be 'kewl'" attitude. Quick, fun read that I would recommend to anyone who likes witchy books. :-)


    23. i just finished this and it was quite cute. Also didn't know till i finished it was a series but i definitely would enjoy finding out more about pru and her life as a half-mortal at witch high. It's fluffy but not angsty teen fun.


    24. I enjoyed this book. It is cute. Prudence and her family is moving from away from California to Massachutes since her brother came into his power can not control them. Alot of this book made me laugh with Prudence and majic, and how her brother couldn't control his.


    25. Very fluffy and reminded me a lot of Sky High the movie, but great for the teen girls that would have been into Buffy or Charmed. The book leaves off feeling very unfinished but there is a sequel. Not sure it can really sustain a series I have to get it ILL since WCPL wouldn't buy it!


    26. A fun, quick read, exactly what I needed after reading The Hour I First Believed. The main character was a bit of a snob, and was a little too interested in be popular for my liking, but overall the book was fun. It would be nice to magically clean my house!


    27. I wanted to love this book, the story line sounded like one I would have liked. But in the end it was just a quick read.Pru was a really annoying character.I didn't feel it was a smooth read, as parts of it were boring. Hence, I don't think I'll look for the next in the series.



    28. It was a pretty good read, but it's kinda a cliff hanger ending. I believe there is a sequel. If not I will kick her.
