MY THOUGHTS
This was a very interesting read and I liked it! It is very similar to many other YA paranormal books, but this was still an enjoyable read!

Indigo (Indie) is a popular cheerleader and has a pretty normal life, excerpt for the fact that her mom owns an occult. A boy dies right in front of Indie, clutching the address of the occult shop, and a book Indie's mom is possessive of gets taken. Also, a strange boy gets showing up at the oddest of times. It turns out that Indie might actually be a witch and the book that was stolen? Holds a spell that makes it possible for sorcerers (witches' enemy) to kill all witches.

The idea and the basic plot is very interesting! So much goes on in this book and it is done so well that I was constantly turning the pages to see what happens next!Though, the concepts in this book are very interesting, I have seen some other similar witchy books.

As far as characters, Indie is okay but it does take awhile to like her. I'm not real wild about popular main characters who see their popularity as the most important thing. And, yeah, sometimes these characters aren't very nice. Indie wasn't a mean girl per say, but she is blinded by popularity. She grows as the book goes on though, which I loved! She begins to realize that her 'friends' were not really her friends and that there are much more important things than popularity!

As far as other characters, I liked Paige. Paige is this girl that Indie has ignored most of her life and considers a geek. Paige is such a great character and I really wish she got some more screen time! Though, Indie, again, annoyed me because she did use Paige a lot. Bishop is another character and I don't know if I like him or not. I guess I like his personality overall. He's full of snark and I love that in a character, but I did find him a bit creepy and annoying. 1. because he was a stalker. 2. because he was always evading questions

As far as romance, it was okay. It didn't distract from the plot too much, which gets a thumbs up from me! I already mentioned my thoughts on the love interest (not a spoiler. Us YA readers should be very well-versed in being able to detect who the love interest is early on), so some of my okay-ness of the romance stems on some of my feelings towards him. All in all, though, I did want them to be together.

IN CONCLUSION
This is a bit of a common YA, but I still think it's worth picking up! It is very exciting and does put out some very interesting ideas! The book does end in a bit of a cliffhanger, so I am definitely picking up the next one!
