Olivia is just your normal teenage girl dealing with normal teenage stuff: the ex-boyfriend and his new (and mean) girlfriend, homework and other school stuff, and a crush. Then one day she finds a necklace with an intricate charm on it... or should I say, it found her. Odd, I know, but that's what happened! This weird necklace suddenly, it seems, gives Olivia powers. Powers that seem to make every boy within a one yard radius to fawn all over her. It's proving difficult for Olivia to control her new found abilities, but as it turns out, Olivia might not be the only one with supernatural abilities at the school.
So, the whole idea of getting their powers through a Charm is very fascinating, though I still do have a few questions about that... like, I still strongly believe that this has got something to do with Greek mythology, but we don't know that for sure. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to finding more about where their powers come from.
I also loved the cast of characters and all their different powers! I especially loved Justin! So mysterious and alluring... *swoon* The ex-boyfriend Max I didn't like so much. He was a jerk-face, but he really ended up surprising me in the end. Speaking of surprises, the plot twist there at the end with the person and the teacher and the sister... Whoa! I did NOT see that coming.
One problem, however, I had with this novel was that there was a lot of telling instead of showing, but besides that I thought it was a great read! It was a very light, fast, and fun read. I really enjoyed it and cannot wait to see where this series is headed!
