Nerdy in high school means smart enough to deal with the world, but when you’re nerdy and discover you’re a witch, descended from generations of strong witchy women , the world suddenly looks scary. Aside from learning of her gifts, Mercy has to deal with Alistair, her now missing grandmother’s cat, to act as adviser. Then the hottest boy in school asks her out, stirring jealousy in the ‘mean girl’ camp. This is a minor annoyance compared to the roiling disaster arising when the coven of evil witches, emboldened by the absence of Mercy’s grandmother, plan to take over the town. Mercy and her two non-witch besties scramble to protect the town, while Mercy’s prospective boyfriend is kept in the dark. This is the first of 5 novels in the series.
