Review - Twice Hexed

Twice Hexed
by Julia Tuffs

What they say: Sabrina the Teenage Witch meets Sex Education - Jessie Jones has just discovered she's a witch, but she still has to deal with the patriarchy. A feisty, funny YA series about discovering your place ... and your power.

After a summer of surfing, sunbathing and fine-tuning her new witchy skills, Jessie starts Year 11 feeling hopeful. She feels like her life-ducks are finally in a row - and at school, she has her sisterhood of Summer, Libby and Tabitha supporting her. Callum Henderson and his toxic masculinity minions have eased off enough for it the girls to feel like they can breathe again, so this year should be a breeze, right?


New year, new troubles.

Mysterious new girl Sloane has just arrived ... and did she mention she's a witch?

Twice the powers, twice the problems...

I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I enjoyed the first book in the series, Hexed, so was excited to read Twice Hexed to see what happened next to Jessie and her friends. 

The story is picks up some time after the events of Hexed and Jessie is trying to find her feet as a young but powerful witch and navigate the difficult world of being a teenager who is still relatively new to town. Oh the drama!

When new arrival Sloane reveals to Jessie that she is also a witch, Jessie finds herself drawn deeper into the world of witchcraft. Jessie is tempted to use her powers for personal gain and revenge. Will she give in to temptation? 

I appreciated how the story explores the intense pressure of exams put on teenagers, whilst struggling with social rules and teenage drama. 

Jessie certainly goes through her share of ups and downs in this story. There were times when I wanted to shout at her and others when I wanted to give her a hug. The secondary characters are a hoot. I enjoyed seeing the group of friends pulling together and growing as young women together.

Twice Hexed is a fun and enjoyable story about the troubles of being a modern teenager, with the added twist of a bit of magic.

4 Stars in my Sky!
