The Midnight Spell - Rhiannon Frater,  Kody Boye The Midnight Spell is a cute coming of age story about two outcasts learning to deal with their differences. I love that Adam and Christy have each other. They are protective and defensive of one another and it is believable. They live in a small town where the townsfolk don't like 'different'. With Adam being the only gay boy in town, and Christy being a witch, they are about as different from the townsfolk as you can get.Christy and Adam always want the other one to be happy, so Christy casts a love spell, to bring Adam his true love. Low and behold, a hot guy starts at their school the following day. First problem, how to find out if he is gay?While Adam's personal life looks like it could be taking off, Christy starts to suspect something is wrong. While I kind of knew where things were going, there were still a few surprises for me.The Midnight Spell is an easy read. Mostly light, with a few darker moments, it keeps you engaged in the story and the lives of the characters. There are a few moments where the story is just downright hokey, and you can't help but laugh and roll your eyes. Riveting it isn't, but it is a good pallet cleanser if you need a break from something darker. I liked it but didn't love it. A good 3.5 Stars.
