Schoolmates, but not yet friends, Aliya, Gillian, and Miya all come from various cultural backgrounds: Aliya is Muslim, Gillian is from Trinidad, and Miya is Japanese.

They come together to work magic in allowing themselves closure in the death of Trevor Saunders. Aliya was his secret girlfriend, Gillian was involved in a secret business and wants her money to get back home, and Miya had a secret argument the night he died that she'd do anything to take back.

THREE WITCHES is less about magic and speaking with the dead and more about finding community in the most unlikely of places and coming to terms with your parents' heritage. All of these girls want something that their parents don't seem to understand. To come out from under their thumb, they have to work together.

One thing that I really enjoyed about THREE WITCHES is that each character is a person with a colorful upbringing and background. It's not every day you have a character in a book that isn't Caucasian, but to have all three main characters not be white? That's definitely an interesting addition to this book, and it wouldn't have been the story it was if any of the characters were changed.

The ending is definitely one that will leave readers questioning. It would make a wonderful book club discussion! ( )

Great premise: 3 girls from different cultures using the paranormal for a mutual goal. And nice twist in the ending. So why didn't the characters grab me? ( )

Aliya knelt on the hardwood floor. With trembling hands, she checked her scarf, careful to tuck every strand of hair beneath the fabric, almost as though she was getting ready to pray.
