    1. I m not usually a fan of YA especially indie YA because too many times authors think writing YA means easier than writing adult But Sara Pascoe has written an actual, genuine, YA novel, and it kicks ass.Rachel Ratchet Hollingsworth is a complex, realistic girl living in a complex, realistic world Yes, her world turns out to include the ability to read minds, communicate with cranky cats, and open portals into the past, but it also includes social workers, foster parents, mental health issues, an [...]


    2. I have just finished reading this book and would recommend to others I really enjoyed reading it and being transported back in time to the Essex witch trials, then to Old Istanbul seeing it through the eyes of a modern day 14 year old The author has a refreshingly unique style of writing that would appeal to readers of all ages It is a fast paced, intelligent and imaginative book.


    3. The reason I am giving this book 5 starts is that it is so close to me I am officially 28 years old now, and I am just begging to understand that I am an adult I want to be a teenager again, so I could unsay to my parents a lot of the thing I said On every page of this book I saw myself and I heard the things I said to them and I called them and said that I was sorry, but somehow it feels like too little too late.This story is amazing It is as realistic as it is not It has magic and it has drama [...]

    10. This really wasn t the novel that I was expecting from the blurb Although Ratchet the Reluctant Witch may sound like a middle grade novel, it s actually young adult It contains some threat of violence, racist language and sexual references If you re planning on giving this to a younger reader, you might want to read it for yourself first.The book s concept was actually pretty interesting, focusing on a fourteen year old girl who s world view has been coloured by her terrible experiences Schizoph [...]


    11. I really enjoyed reading this book and it grabbed my attention straight away, even though it isn t normally the genre that I read.It is a YA novel young adult but I think adults will enjoy it as well.It was full of adventure, drama, fantasy, history, friendship, self discovery, humour and overall a really fun and enjoyable read.One of my favourite parts of the book was how it went back in time, using one of Ratchet s powers of time travel In this case it went back to the times of the Witch Trial [...]


    12. This review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon Please head there for in depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely schedule.Rachel that s Ratchet to you has been stuck in foster care ever since her schizophrenic mother was deemed to not be stable enough to care for her When Ratchet starts hearing voices and seeing things, she is determined to run away before anything else goes wrong Unfortunately, she time travels away to the witch trials of Essex.Sigh The blurb gives away [...]


    13. I won this book through in exchange for my sincere review This book will be enjoyed by the mature adolescent reader Ratchet the Reluctant Witch is a very upbeat, exciting, and remarkably moral story Ratchet is a 14 year old foster child, living with a foster brother, in a home in London She doesn t know that she s a witch who has the unusual power to be able to transport herself, to different places, and historical times Ratchet just decided to run away from the foster care system She was old en [...]


    14. I received a copy from the author, through Publishing Push, in exchange for an honest review This has in no way swayed my opinion.Ratchet the Reluctant Wish was a book I thought long and hard about accepting for review, because the request came at a time where almost every book let me down I decided to accept it in the end but I have to say, that I didn t enjoy it nearly as much as I thought, and hoped, I would If you ask me Ratchet the Reluctant Wish is targeted towards a younger audience, defi [...]


    15. Ratchet the Reluctant Witch is spectacular Pascoe crafted quite the spunky, teen witch with Ratchet However, the story is so much than just the tale of a teen learning to use powers she didn t expect Pascoe takes readers on an, at times dangerous, but quirky and fun, adventurous bildungsroman By the end of the story Ratchet has grown into Rachel Magic and time travel are merely the extraordinary means that help to transform her and her life.Readers will not regret popping along for the ride.I r [...]


    16. I won this book in a goodread giveaway It is perfect read for a young teenager with a bit of history geography , sci fi and friendships The characters didn t always conform but were different and likeable I have passed on to my teenage daughter Many thanks


    17. This is a book aimed at YA but I think that adults will enjoy reading it as well.The book is fast paced, and gets you hooked right from the start The characters are easy to identify with and believable I would recommend it and hope there are books to follow
