Read full description of the books Spying Eyes:In case you were not a fan of Sabrina the Teenage Witch in the 90s, these books are based on the tv show, which is about Sabrina, who learns as a teenager that she's a witch, as are her aunts. This book tells the story of Sabrina's first Castanalia, a holiday on which witches can cast all the spells they want for 24 hours without any consequences, because the day will just start over again the next day. However, Sabrina's aunts forget to mention that one spell doesn't go away, and if you don't prepare for that in advance, you won't know which one! When scientists come to their town looking for evidence of magic, Sabrina has to find the spell that didn't go away, and fix it, while there's a ban on magic.
This book was a fun read, and really brought me back to the show, which I loved as a preteen. (It was on TGIF with Teen Angel, Boy Meets World, and You Wish. I loved that lineup!) This book was definitely cheesy, though. I can't remember if the show was like that.
When the witches had to stop doing magic to avoid the suspicion of the scientists, I found it scarier than I probably should have, just because it reminded me so much of Charmed, which had several episodes with similar plot lines, including one in which a witch ends up burned at the stake! But these scientists were more of the goofy variety.
So, not exactly a great work of literature, but a fun story, especially if you were a fan of the show.
