Review: Competition's a Witch by Kelly McClymer


In book one of this series, The Salem Witch Tryouts, Prudence Stewart was moved from Beverly Hills to Salem Massachusetts. Now one month later and sure, Pru's still stuck in Magic for Dummies -- but at least she made the cheerleading squad.

Now Pru has to work even harder on becoming just like her new witch friends. Not only does she have to cram for testing out of remedial magic but she has to learn to cheer with magic while hoping no one on the team catches on that she’s not up to their standards and convince the team to learn how cheer like mortals so they win the regional cheer competition. To make things worse she’s just met the mortal hottie next door and whenever he’s around she can’t focus on anything but him.

I have to say that as much as I loved book one, I just didn’t feel the same about this book. The storyline didn’t have the same pull as the first one. It felt to me like this book could have been condensed into a chapter of book one without losing anything. I plan on finishing the series with book three so I hope it get’s better.

I did not enjoy this one as much as the 1st and 3rd books. It seemed like it was.... pushed. It didnt flow well. But it was still pretty decent.
