About the Book
Ever since she was a baby, Bella Donna has suspected she has magical powers, and she wants nothing more than to be a witch. Bella lives in an orphanage, waiting for her “Forever Family,” until one day she meets Lilith Sorciere and agrees to move in with Lilith and her niece Verity. Bella tries keeping her witchy tendencies a secret from her new foster family, and she stays on her best behavior—but when she comes home early one day from school, she stumbles upon something very surprising! Could Coven Road really be a road for witches?

This first installment of the sweet, spooky Bella Donna series will captivate young magic-loving readers. Bella Donna: Coven Road is an engaging and entertaining read with a subtle message to be yourself. Marion Lindsay’s adorably simple spot illustrations bring even more magic to author Ruth Symes’s delightful tale. Fall in love with Bella Donna and her road to witchdom! And be prepared for her next big adventure!

My Take on the Book
Ruth Symes has written a very nice chapter book for middle age children. It is the first in the series. I enjoyed the story line very much and look forward to the next book in the series.

Bella Donna was left at an orphanage as a baby with nothing but a witch mobile. She grew up and Sam became her best friend. Together they shared good times and challenging times. Both were waiting for just the right people to adopt them to become their Forever Family.

Bella Donna felt she was a witch. She wanted to be adopted by a witch and as luck would have it her wish was granted, but not without wanting to change herself to make her more likable for Lilith her adopting parent.

It is a story of learning to be happy with who you are. It is a story about adjustment, being a good friend, and allowing yourself to dream big. There is also jealousy in the story which gets one character into some big trouble. The reader will see problem solving , family love and acceptance.
I believe your middle age child will enjoy reading this chapter book.
