Be Brave

There are times that you may feel afraid.  Do you let that fear hold you back?  Confident people are brave.  By confronting their fears, they grow as people, gain new experiences, and become stronger individuals.

What are you afraid of?  Maybe you have been wanting to ask your crush out on a date, but you’re scared of rejection.  Perhaps you want to try out for the soccer team, but you are afraid you will make a fool of yourself.  It’s possible you want to write a book, but you’re too afraid to show anyone your work.

Although Mandy McKinney is the most popular girl in school, she is afraid that she is not good enough.  She worries that any wrong move she makes will negatively effect her social status.  She is falling in love with her good friend, but she doubts that he feels the same.

Everyone is stunned when Mandy dyes her blonde hair to red.  She was finally brave enough to do something that she always wanted to do, without letting fear of what everyone else will think stop her.  Now will she be able to find the strength to tell the boy she loves how she feels?

Mandy’s twin sister, Brianna, has never had any luck when it comes to dating.  All the boys have always used her to try to get closer to her beautiful sister, and then dumped her.  When Brianna finally meets the right guy for her, she is terrified of getting her heart broken again.

Will Brianna find the courage to let down her walls and fall in love?

If you don’t take the chance, you never know what you will miss out on!  So go ahead and ask your crush out on a that date.  Try out for the soccer team!  Stand up in front of a crowd and read your writing!  If there is something you want but you’ve been letting fear hold you back, take a deep breath and go for it!  Remember:  you miss 100% of the shots that you don’t take.

Join witches Brianna and Mandy on their magical journey of self discovery in the new Young Adult Paranormal novel by Alison F. Prince, In Shadows of Magic.

Be a GENUINE friend

The first step is choosing true friends (link back to other post).  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?
