Following years of persecution at the hands of Vivica Vance, Daphne Downing levels the playing field wielding her No. 2 Ticonderoga pencil as she belatedly enters the world of witchcraft. Daphne becomes part of the Mysterious Girls’ Secret Bathroom Society and finds out that the politics governing witchcraft are daunting and sometimes deadly. She realizes she is aligned with the Charmers in this political battle with the Spiters led by her nemesis, Vivica. Along the way, she discovers that witches do not perform magic or witchcraft but a differentiated form of physics that only some women have mastered. The story deepens as she learns about the long history of witches’ domination and annihilation of wizards.
Daphne and her nemesis Vi have been feuding for years. One day in the bathroom Daphne discovers that Vi is a witch. She also discovers that she herself is also a witch.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked that witchcraft is explained as another way to do physics. I like that all girls have the potential to be a witch.
I like that Daphne stayed true to herself. She didn't unquestioningly follow what the witches said and stood for what she believed to be right.
This was a fun book to read. I'm hoping that there will be more books about Daphne in the future.
