Synopsis:

Forced to spend Spring Break as a counselor at a camp for troublesome young witches instead of drooling over hotties at the beach, Emma relinquishes her hopes for romance. Could the perfect guy be waiting in the midst of poison ivy, s'mores, elephant trunks, and kangaroo feet?

My rating: ★★★★★

So this short little story actually takes place in Juli Alexander’s Stirring Up Trouble world, one which witch I love! See what I did there? Because they’re witches? Eh? Yeah, yeah… lame, I know. Lol. Anyway, the main character from that series, Zoe, and her witchy best friend Milo were actually mentioned! Eeeep! That was exciting! I just love Juli’s work! Everything I’ve read so for is just so much fun and so very funny!

Camp Cauldron is basically a camp for kids who misuse magic. You see, in this world, when you use magic for personal gain (yep, words straight out of Charmed—loved that show!), well, there are certain side effects. Giraffe necks, fish lips, elephant trunk… yikes! But boy are they hilarious! Zoe herself actually gets into some trouble, too. (Make sure you check out Stirring Up Trouble!)

Camp Cauldron was pretty great for being such a short story. But I guess it helped that I was already in love with this world ;) Witches and magic are one of my favorite things to read about! I highly recommend this novella (and series!) whether you’ve read Stirring Up Trouble or not! It was a lot of fun, hilarious, plus there is a bit of romance thrown in which I quite enjoyed. If you have not read any of Juli’s work, you definitely need to!
