When the magic circle is set, I close my eyes and summon the power that I know is in me. I chant the words to this blessing spell like I’ve known them my whole life. “Spirits of Mother Nature,” I say. “I call on you. I ask that you bless us all and bless our friendship that makes us stronger. Grant us strength in our together and strength in our apart.” 
Best friends Sophia, Mia, and Alexis are clinging on to a spark of hope that maybe–just maybe–magic truly does exist. Could they really be witches with the power to cast life-changing spells? When the three friends gather to cheer up heartbroken Sophia, they’re ready to put their theory to the test. But then long-held secrets are revealed, and hard truths start to hit home. Suddenly, their night of bewitching fun takes an unexpected turn.
