Book Review:
Spells for Teenage Witches

Author: Marina Baker
Paperback, 95 pages Publisher: Kyle Cathie Ltd
Publication date: 2000
ISBN: 1856263975

This elegantly designed book is a fantastic resource for simple, effective spells. Created with the needs of teenagers in mind, Spells for Teenage Witches has 95 pages of handy spell and ritual ideas. Baker begins with an introduction to magick and some basics of witch practice. These pages are easy to read and full of practical guidelines, influenced by Wiccan practice. There is, however, very little discussion of any ethics pertaining to spell casting.

Next is the spells section itself. This contains 49 spells, covering everything from exam revision to period pain. The spells are beautifully set out (can you tell I bought this originally for aesthetic appeal?) and use simple ingredients and chants. The correspondences are basic but serve their purpose.

The book ends with a few pages on celebrating Wiccan sabbats (but doesn't include the equinoxes), all very nice ideas although some of the info provided is a bit off - i.e. she refers to Yule as one of the greater sabbats and Samhain as a lesser, when in fact it is the other way around (as far as I'm aware).

All in all, I'd say Spells for Teenage Witches was a very useful book for teen witches needing spells, especially those interested in Wicca, whether as a straight out source or as inspiration for creating personal spells.
