...I wrote about Mariah Fredericks' Season of the Witch, which I liked a whole lot:
The feminist undercurrents. This is HUGELY unusual in a Mean Girls story! While Toni’s romance with Oliver is the catalyst for her story, it’s not really a huge factor. In the past, Toni has certainly enjoyed the company of the opposite sex, but she’s never been driven by the I Need To Snag Me A Dude impulse.
All of the power—magic or otherwise—in Season of the Witch is wielded by the female characters, and it’s not about women (or girls) in relation to men (or boys): It’s about them in relation to each other.
