Review: The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball by Risa Green

Goodreads: In a world where nothing is certain, a little magic couldn't hurt . . . right?

When Erin Channing's favorite aunt dies, Erin is bequeathed a pink crystal ball and a set of weird instructions. Granted, Aunt Kiki (aka Aunt Kooky) always lived "outside the box." But now Erin and her two best friends are convinced that the pink crystal ball holds the key to their future- or at least the key to getting dates . . . .

Consider your fate to be sealed . . .

Kritters Thoughts: A cute read worth grabbing off the bookshelf. A girl is given "power" through a crystal ball where she can help change her future, thanks to her aunt who has recently passed away. I fell in love with this YA book from start to finish.

An easy read with a main character and sub characters that grab your attention from the first page. I was drawn to these three girls and loved their differences, but knew their friendship was genuine even with their different family backgrounds. I loved the ups and downs of the plot that seemed realistic, yet with a twist of magic the story kept evolving.

The play on "Mean Girls" was a great addition to the plot. The dueling girl groups with funny nicknames were hilarious and the voodoo dolls and trickery between them was just fun to read.

A great light girlie read that was perfect for a day by the pool.

Rating:absolutely loved it and want a sequel
