Enchantment - Charlotte Abel Let me start by saying I read this book almost a year ago and still remember it well enough to review it. That right there is saying something. For me to remember enough detail without re-reading & still feel comfortable writing a review ... it has got to be a stand-out book.Enchantment is that. I was confused at the beginning, having picked it up without even reading the blurb, so I had no idea what was going on. But everything is slowly explained; they have "power names" connected to their abilities. Channie's parents change hers, which on top of up-rooting her and moving across country & throwing her into a public high school, understandably pisses her off. Then she meets Josh and ... O_O They are so flipping sweet. I was rooting for them from the beginning.Overall, love this story. LOVE Josh & Channie. HATE most everyone else. Ok, not everyone, but many of the side characters you aren't supposed to like. And trust me, I don't. I enjoyed this trip into YA so much I read the second book, Taken, immediately after finishing this one, then found out Finding Valor, book 3 *still* isn't out, and cried a little on the inside.I will be waiting, not so patiently, for that. *glares at Ms. Abel* :-)
