Author: Sarah Rees Brennan
Genre: Young Adult, Horror
Publisher: Scholastic Inc.
Release Date: July 9, 2019
It’s the summer before her sixteenth birthday, and Sabrina Spellman knows her world is about to change. She’s always studied magic and spells with her aunts, Hilda and Zelda. But she’s also lived a normal mortal life – attending Baxter High, hanging out with her friends Susie and Roz, and going to the movies with her boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle.
Now time is running out on her every day, normal world, and leaving behind Roz and Susie and Harvey is a lot harder than she thought it would be. Especially because Sabrina isn’t sure how Harvey feels about her. Her cousin Ambrose suggests performing a spell to discover Harvey’s true feelings. But when a mysterious wood spirit interferes, the spell backfires in a big way.
Sabrina has always been attracted to the power of being a witch. But now she can’t help wondering if that power is leading her down the wrong path. Will she choose to forsake the path of light and follow the path of night?
This is a great prequel to the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
I read the graphic novel of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina before I watched the show on Netflix. The graphic novel was the creepiest one I’ve ever read! The show is also quite creepy and gruesome. I was so glad that this book didn’t have the same horror themes.
I loved the way the characters were introduced in this story. The story added a lot to the plot, by introducing the characters before the beginning of the show. It also gave a lot of the background on Ambrose, who I always found was a confusing character, as to how and why he was there. It also gave some details on Harvey’s family.
I really enjoyed this story!
