What’s a girl to do when meeting The One means she’s cursed to die a horrible death?
Life hasn’t been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Conner, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But the posh Upper East Side prep school she has to attend? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she’s irresistibly drawn to—Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks and the richest kid in school, who might just be her very own white knight.

But even when Brendan inexplicably turns cold, Emma can’t stop staring. Ever since she laid eyes on him, strange things have been happening. Streetlamps go out wherever she walks, and Emma’s been having the oddest dreams. Visions of herself in past lives—visions that warn her to stay away from Brendan. Or else.

About the Author:

Cara Lynn Shultz’s love of supernatural writing began when she was 7 and wrote a play about ghosts, which she and her friends acted out on her grandparents’ porch. Since then, her work has appeared in Teen People, Alternative Press, Stuff, InStyle, Us Weekly, The Guardian UK and countless posts on Facebook and Twitter. She is a proud graduate of Fordham University and is currently a senior editor at Cara lives in her native New York City with her husband, tuxedo cat and 8 million other people.  Spellbound is her first novel.


Spellbound is Cara Lynn Schultz’s first novel and I am sure she will have many more! She is a very talented writer. The story line is very up to date with all the technological stuff that high school kids use(Facebook, Youtube, smartphones, etc.). I thought the characters were very real also, they could be real life people and were relate-able. I enjoyed the dynamic between the main characters Emma and Brenden, the rich history that they hold. Looking at it from a teen’s perspective I liked the fact that they could also connect with Brenden in real like thru his facebook account. I thought that was a “cool” little extra that Cara brought to the table.  I definitely recommend this book to others. I look forward to reading the sequel!!


♥ ♥ ♥ ♥  4/5 Hearts Really Great Read
