9781567187250: Teen Witch: Wicca for a New Generation

Come on, you know you'd look glamorous and powerful in black...that lighting candles and calling spirits would give you an aura of mystery...that life would be better if only you could turn your history teacher into a jiggling mound of orange (or maybe lime) Jell-O. Well, this book is here to tell you that wearing black clothing and threatening people with hexes and curses won't make you a Witch. In fact, neither will joining a coven or being initiated. What Teen Witch will show you is that how you live, how you deal with others, and how you incorporate Wiccan laws into your life determines whether or not you are a true Witch. This handbook presents everything from the Wiccan principles of belief, traditions, symbols, holidays and rituals, to spells for homework and dating.

Review:

Okay, so the cover is a little hokey, but it's what's inside that counts, right? Well, Silver RavenWolf has stuffed Teen Witch with enough basic material on Wicca to give anyone a good start to understanding the craft. As the title implies, this book is geared for teens, addressing the truths and myths about witchcraft in light of the issues that teens face, from school to parents to peer pressure. Precocious readers may feel that RavenWolf is talking down to them at times, but keep in mind that this book addresses a broad age group, and Mama Silver (as she is often called) does an admirable job of presenting this information in a manner to which younger readers can relate, while still meeting the needs of the high-school senior. Teen Witch may not be the ultimate "How to be a Witch" guide, and anyone who thinks RavenWolf is trying to write one has missed her whole point. No single book could stake a valid claim to that title.

What Teen Witch offers is an easy-to-grasp introduction to the Craft that answers the basic questions about what being a witch is really all about, and RavenWolf provides a long list of follow-up material for anyone who feels that witchcraft might be the path he or she wants to follow. Writing a book for teenagers about any religion is a tricky prospect, but Mama Silver tackles the problem of discussing an ancient path that has suffered a long history of persecution and negative stereotypes in a way that doesn't step on anyone's toes and shouldn't offend the religious sensibilities of anyone with a mind open to the truth. --Brian Patterson

From the Publisher:

The modern Wiccan community is now entering its third, and sometimes fourth, generation. But until now there have been no books specifically designed for teens. The growing number of children in Pagan households, as well as teenagers' growing interest in Witchcraft, meant that somebody had to fill this need. And I couldn't be happier that the person who did this was a mother of teenage daughters, Silver RavenWolf.

There are two reasons for this. First, because she's around teens, she knows how to talk with them and what their interests are. The spells she includes have relate to teenage problems: finding peace at home, getting new friends, raising self-esteem. The tools for the spells are all within a teen's budget. They include such common items as eggs or potatoes, or even just a pen and paper. They'll be learning about real Witchcraft in a way that is easy, fun, and safe.

Second, because she is a mother herself, she says the kind of things that teens need to hear. For example: drugs and alcohol don't go with magick; a ritual can help build your confidence so you can remember answers for tests (but you still must study so you know the answers to put down; "Witches do not work magick to harm others and we know that no real power lies in evil." There's even a spell to help keep Internet stalkers away.

This book is filled with everything a teen needs to know to start practicing Witchcraft. It also provides guidance so that teens can continue with their studies of Wicca. Without hesitation I can recommend Teen Witch as the first book any parent could give to their teen interested in the Craft. I also recommend it to any teen who wants to learn what real Wicca is all about.
