Old Magicby Marianne Curley
Synopses & Reviews
Jarrod Thornton is mesmerizing,
but Kate Warren doesn't know why.
The moment the new guy walks into the room, Kate senses something strange and intense about him. Something supernatural. Her instincts are proven correct a few minutes later when, bullied by his classmates, Jarrod unknowingly conjures up a freak thunderstorm inside their classroom.
Jarrod doesn't believe in the paranormal. When Kate tries to convince him that he has extraordinary powers that need to be harnessed, he only puts up with her "hocus pocus" notions because he finds her captivating. However, the dangerous, uncontrolled strengthening of his gift finally convinces Jarrod that he must take Kate's theories seriously. Together, they embark on a remarkable journey — one which will unravel the mystery that has haunted Jarrod's family for generations and pit the teens against immense forces in a battle to undo the past and reshape the future.
Loner Kate Warren has an extrasensory ability to see fragments of what people are thinking. When Jarrod, a new boy at school, is bullied by classmates, Kate notices that she can't sense his thoughts--a sign that Jarrod must also have supernatural gifts. Rattled by the taunts, Jarrod taps into his long-dormant powers. Together, the teens travel back in time to break the chains of an evil curse.
