The Magnolia League by Katie Crouch Review

Title: The Magnolia League
Publisher: Poppy
Release Date: May 3rd, 2011
368 pages

After the death of her free-spirited mother, sixteen-year-old Alex Lee must leave her home in northern California to live with her wealthy grandmother in Savannah, Georgia. By birth, Alex is a rightful, if unwilling, member of the Magnolia League, Savannah's long-standing debutante society. She quickly discovers that the Magnolias have made a pact with a legendary hoodoo family, the Buzzards. The Magnolias enjoy youth, beauty and power. But at what price?

As in her popular adult novels, Crouch's poignant and humorous voice shines in this seductively atmospheric story about girls growing up in a magical Southern city.

My Review:
When I first saw this novel on Goodreads, I was really interested. The cover was so pretty and the plot summary was really different then other novels.

Unfortunately, I went into this novel with high expectations only to be disappointed. At times the plot was very predictable and halfway through the novel I felt that I knew what was going to happen at the end.

What I did like was the hoodoo magic in the novel. I never really knew anything about hoodoo magic so it was really cool to learn more about it in this novel!

My Rating:
Three out of Five stars
