The Lovereading4Kids comment
From the author of The Demon Notebook comes a spellbinding story full of magic, mystery and time-travel. The Broken Spell combines plenty of fast-paced action and humour combined with a wonderful portrayal of friendship as five friends must test their loyalty as a mistaken spell they make brings the past into the present and trainee witch Grace must choos to trust an ancient enchantment or her friends in order to save the girls and herself.
The Broken Spell by Erika McGann
Grace and her four best friends, Adie, Rachel, Jenny and Una are being trained to be bona fide witches. But their tutors, Mrs Quinlan and Ms Lemon, aren't keen to show them any practical magic. Instead, the girls spend the entire summer buried in books and studying weeds. That is until the new school year starts, and the glamorous Ms Gold joins Ms Lemon on the faculty, the missing member of Mrs Quinlan and Ms Lemon's broken coven; she is eager to teach the girls real witchcraft. In the hope of mending their teachers' damaged friendships, the girls cast a spell to travel back to the 1970s. However, the spell goes awry, and the girls bounce back and forth in time, out of control.
