This is the first book in the wildly popular young adult fantasy 'Sweep' series by Cate Tiernan.

Something is happening to Morgan that she doesn't understand. She sees things, feels things in a new way. She can do things normal people can't do. Powerful things. Magical things. And it scares her.

She never chose to learn witchcraft, but she's starting to wonder if witchcraft is choosing her.

Morgan and her best friend, Bree, are introduced to Wicca when a gorgeous senior named Cal invites them to join his new coven. Morgan falls for Cal immediately -- and discovers that she has strong, inexplicable powers.

About the Author:

CATE TIERNAN is the author of the popular 'Sweep' series, as well as two other fantasy series for young adults, Balefire and Immortal Beloved. She lives in Durham, North Carolina.

From Publishers Weekly:

This delectably dark pair of novels, first in the Sweep series, brings a supernatural spin to classic teen issuesApopularity, romance, alienation and the search for self. Narrator Morgan, a high school junior in upstate New York, feels plain and ordinary, especially next to her flirty, drop-dead-gorgeous friend Bree. When Cal, a remarkably poised and handsome senior, transfers to their school, Morgan likes him almost immediately, an attraction she hides when Bree announces that she plans to win him for herself. Cal makes no secret of his belief in Wicca, inviting most of the junior and senior classes to join him in a Wiccan celebration. The rituals powerfully affect MorganAcould it be that she, like Cal, is a "blood witch" (a descendant of one of the seven great witch clans)? But how could she be a blood witch when everyone else in her family is so clearly not "magickal"? While Tiernan's ingredients are familiar, she stirs the cauldron with engaging, even cinematic, prose and sharply individuates her characters. She introduces the Wiccan material with some depth as well as with a skillful degree of ambiguity; readers will not know immediately whether or not the series embraces Wicca. Both books end on cliffhangers (Shadows, for example, closes as Cal kisses Morgan, in full view of Bree and the rest of their newly formed coven), fanning what will surely be an already keen desire to learn the whole story. Ages 12-up. (Jan.)
