Synopsis: Following years of persecution at the hands of Vivica Vance, Daphne Downing levels the playing field wielding her No. 2 Ticonderoga pencil as she belatedly enters the world of witchcraft. Daphne becomes part of the Mysterious Girls’ Secret Bathroom Society and finds out that the politics governing witchcraft are daunting and sometimes deadly. She realizes she is aligned with the Charmers in this political battle with the Spiters led by her nemesis, Vivica. Along the way, she discovers that witches do not perform magic or witchcraft but a differentiated form of physics that only some women have mastered. The story deepens as she learns about the long history of witches’ domination and annihilation of wizards.
Review: Daphne and The Mysterious Girls Secret Bathroom Society is a funny and interesting look at high school life. Daphne discovers all of the girls at her school (which doesn't seem to be very big) are witches - also known as physicists because they manipulate the physical world. Even though she is coming into the world of witchcraft late in life (almost too late), Daphne seems to have an uncanny proficiency for slinging spells. She now has to navigate her way through this minefield of high school politics with a witchy twist. I'm very interested to see where this is going to take Daphne in future adventures!
