**Review** A Witches Tale: stuff &things and what boredom brings by Rue Volley

A Witches Tale: stuff & things and what boredom brings
By Rue Volley

Alexandria "Alexi" Elizabeth Carvelle is a typical teenage girl; doing her best to navigate High School, daydreaming of the future, trying to study hard. Her life would all be very normal if her mother had not just passed away leaving Alexi and her father, Christopher, on their own with nothing but a legacy, the only witchy store in Ravenswood - Stuff & Things and What Boredom Brings. On top of everything else, Alexi has now noticed her BFF, a boy. 
But all of these things are the least of her problems when a new boy moves into town. His family's arrival disrupts the peaceful life of living in Ravenswood. Their presence has ignited old rumors when they moved into the one place everyone in town avoids, the Haunted Mansion. Suddenly, everything changes for Alexi. The dreams begin and nothing is perhaps what it seemed.

Every town has a secret, but what if that secret is you?

5 Stars

Review from Rising Indies United.

I have to say that I absolutely love Rue Volley.  I have read two of her series, Blood & Light and Hellhound, and now this book.  Her others are all on my "absolutely must read list".  That's not an easy list to get on either.  Each of her series are different and very unique.  They aren't a story line that I have read over and over again.  This book is no different.  It is unique also.  This review is hard to write because I don't want to post any spoilers, or give anything away at all!

Alexandria "Alexi" Elizabeth Carvelle is just your average, not normal teen.  She says exactly what she wants, doesn't really follow any trends.  her best friend is a guy, Logan.  She slapped him in the face and knocked out his tooth when they were 3.  They've been friends ever sincce.  Her mom died of cancer, so her dad is raising her.  He is a great dad.

Oh and did I mention that she comes from a long line of witches?

Logan Stewart is her best friend.  I was laughing at most of their interactions.  It was great. 

They live in a town named Ravenswood.  It's a slow paced town, where things are normal and everyone knows everyone there. 

That is until a new family moves there.

Enter Kyle Huntington.  He is the new kid.  I will admit, I really liked him at the beginning, now I'm unsure.  Once he show up, things start getting wonky. 

Secrets come out.  Alexi will have some tough decisions in the following books. 

There are curses, death, magic, creatures, and even more secrets!

This is such a great read, you won't be disappointed reading it!  I promise!
