In Shadows of Magic
by Alison F. Prince
Published July 11, 2013 by Astraea Press

Mandy McKinney lives the charmed life. She is beautiful, athletic, popular, dating the hottest jock in school, and certainly doesn't have any time for her loser twin sister. But Mandy also has a secret. When the truth is unveiled, her world is twisted upside down, and her very life is at stake.

Mandy's twin sister, Brianna, has never had any success in the dating department. When Brianna finally meets the guy of her dreams, it turns out that he has secrets of his own. Dangerous secrets. Just her luck.

The twins are about to be swept away into a world of beauty and power beyond their wildest imaginations where nothing is what is seems, danger is lurking in the shadows, and their only chance of survival is finding themselves, and each other, once again.

Bea- YOU- tiful: Real Confidence in Yourself
Be a Genuine Friend
The first step is choosing true friends.  The next step is being a genuine friend yourself.  When your friends are on top, it's easy to be around them.  But what about when they are down and out?  Maybe your best friend is depressed and isn't acting herself lately.  Should you turn your back on her?  Absolutely not!  This is when she needs your the most!

In the novel, In Shadows of Magic, Mandy McKinney is the most popular girl in school.  She's beautiful, athletic, and dating the most desirable guy in school.  But the truth is that she's a witch, and that she has used her magic to achieve all of this.  Mandy always agonizes about if people like her, and does whatever she can to fit in.  Every day she wonders if her friendships are real, or if she has used her magic to bewitch everyone, including her hot boyfriend.  When one of Mandy's "friends" turns against her, she worries that all of her friends will.  

Mandy's twin sister, Brianna, doesn't fit in with the popular crowd.  She feels rejected by her own twin sister.  But she has lots of fun with her true friends.  Brianna has been best friends with Eva since pre-school, and they stand by each other through thick and thin.  Brianna doesn't have to worry about appearances with her friends.  They can be goofy and have fun!

After choosing true friends, be a genuine friend to them!  Stand by them during tough times.  Stand up for your friends when others are plotting against them.  Even when everyone else turns against you, a genuine friend will be by your side!

Will Mandy's friends and boyfriend turn against her during her hard times?  Will Brianna and Mandy reconcile, and realize that they are more the same than they are different?
