Miss Mabel's School For Girls by Katie Cross

Miss Mabel's School for Girls (The Network Series, #1)Book Description:
Never underestimate the power of a determined witch.
Letum Wood is a forest of fog and deadfall, home to the quietly famous Miss Mabel’s School for Girls, a place where young witches learn the art of magic.
Sixteen-year-old Bianca Monroe has inherited a deadly curse. Determined to break free before it kills her, she enrolls in the respected school to confront the cunning witch who cast the curse: Miss Mabel.
Bianca finds herself faced with dark magic she didn’t expect, with lessons more dangerous than she could have ever imagined. Will Bianca have the courage to save herself from the curse, or will Miss Mabel’s sinister plan be too powerful?
Miss Mabel’s School for Girls is the first novel in The Network Series, an exciting new fantasy collection. A gripping tale about the struggle to survive, it will take you to a new place and time, one you’ll never want to leave.

My Thoughts:
Yes!  Absolutely loved this book.  Bianca, we meet at the very start and I immediately liked her.  She wasn't what anyone expected and I couldn't wait to learn what was driving her.  The curse that she inherited is the driving force behind most of her decisions.  She jumps in with both feet and shocks everyone, but makes friends and enemies because of this.  The author must be a strong woman because that is what we have all through this book, strong female characters....and I love it!
I really loved the twists and turns, some of which I guessed were coming and some not.  It did remind me some of Harry Potter but wasn't a 'remake' of it, just a few similarities (totally a good thing).  The evil Miss Mabel was well written, as were all the characters.  I'm hoping the characters develop more as the series continues and  look forward to more from this author.
5/5 and I cannot wait to read more of this series! Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
