Publisher's Summary

Men come and go, but magic is forever…right?
Wrong. After a few months of letting witchcraft slide, Jane Madison discovers that not using her powers has her rapidly losing them. Meanwhile, her warder is avoiding her, her familiar has moved out, her mother is abandoning her again, and her grandmother is…getting married? With her world turned topsy-turvy, Jane is at her wits' end trying to set things right. Staking everything on a last-ditch spell that backfires spectacularly, Jane is left full of questions. Will her powers return? Will she find true love? Will she talk her grandmother out of orange and silver bridesmaids' dresses?
What magic does the future hold for this modern girl?

Good Story, bad experience.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator makes this book 'hard to listen to'. It sounds as if she is running the Boston Marathon while she narrates. She takes a breath two or three times in a sentence, adding commas and periods to the manuscript that surely are not there. And when is the last time you knew an adult to pronounce Library as "Lie Berry". It ruined the whole book for me and the story actually seems interesting. I just can't get through the reading.

What did you like best about this story?

The story line is good; the characters are interesting. It sounds as if the writing is done well too, if you can get past the narration.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emma Galvin?

Someone like C.J. Critt may bring it to life.

Was Magic and the Modern Girl worth the listening time?

Unfortunately I have tried twice to listen and the narration is so distracting I keep switching off to books I've heard many times for peace of mind.

Any additional comments?

Give me my credit back....LOL

Decent story. Love the characters. Poor narration

Narrator pauses and breaks phrases and sentences in weird places in storytelling. Can be distracting. Not a smooth reader. Bizarre.
