About this ebook

From author Kristen S. Walker comes a young adult urban fantasy about family and coming of age.

She wanted her freedom. Her mother wanted to keep her safe. But if her mother is the more powerful witch, how can Rosa ever break free?

Teen witch Rosa thought she had a happy family. But after her mother convinces her that sixteen is too young to start dating, she’s not so sure. Why does Mom win every argument when Rosa fights for her independence? Why do her father and sister listen to Mom’s opinions on everything? Maybe they give up too easily, or there’s something more sinister at work.

As she investigates her own house, Rosa finds hidden spells everywhere, each one with creepy powers. Her mother sees nothing wrong with invading their privacy, from tracking their movements to reading private diaries. That’s dangerous when Rosa has a secret she’s afraid to tell—she’s bisexual. But when Rosa tries to confront her mother, her own mind betrays her.

To break the spells, Rosa will need help from her friends, both magical and human, along with her strange Fae mentor. But if she learns the truth, will her mother’s dark secrets tear her family apart?

Small Town Witch is the first book in an urban fantasy series for teens. If you like teen witches, sarcastic Fae, and family drama, then you’ll enjoy Kristen S. Walker’s stories of fantasy that takes flight.

Rated PG for mild violence. Contains no sex or swearing. LGBTQ characters.

It was a really cute book. At times it was a bit predictable, and the characters were a little boring. I wouldn't have minded an epilogue to tell us what happened with everyone, but it was an enjoyable quick read.

Well written young adult series. Ending just stops though. It's more like one big book chopped into a series.
