The second book takes place at the same old St. Augustus and follows a young girl named Courtney and her friends. On a dare, Courtney ventures into the West Woods, where she finds a key leading to hidden secrets about magic and the school. And then she stumbles upon that same fountain that was so captivating in the first book, and she makes a wish. Story started off pretty slow with its vapid array of characters and develops into a slow and complex plot. I mean, I felt like it took forever to get to the fountain, and the main character didn’t make it any easier. At times, I just couldn’t stand her with her constant talk about the in-crowd and boys and all. I couldn’t really hold any interest for any of it. I’m sorry to say that this book could not hold a candle to the first. It wasn’t even in the same league, much less my expectations.
My rating: 2 stars
