Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult


A bundle of awkwardness and social anxiety, Charlie Lavender isn’t sure about starting her freshman year in small-town Normal, Illinois. Little does she know her new best friend, a love triangle, and…a magical owl(?) are waiting for her in the Fall of 1993.

She definitely didn’t expect ominous priests, probable witches, and a secret, several-thousand-year-old war would also become part of everyday life.

Welcome to Normal, where nothing ever is.

As she and her newfound friends search for the truth about a world of magic just out of view, the real question is, can Charlie accept the last thing she ever expected to happen? For the first time ever, she’s fitting in.

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.

Thanks to the author @carson.patrick.bowie and @mtmctours for my incredible book box and gorgeous print Arc.

“𝙄𝙛 𝘾𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙡𝙞𝙚 𝙇𝙖𝙫𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧 𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜, 𝙞𝙩 𝙬𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙗𝙚 𝙨𝙪𝙗𝙩𝙡𝙚.”

Charlie Lavender & the Origin of Everything by Carson Patrick Bowie, will delight readers everywhere. A witchy magical coming of age novel, that is not short of spectacular. Set in Norma Illinois, where everything is not. The author delivers a YA fantasy, with atmospheric 90s nostalgia. The smooth transitioning dual time frames, and lush magical realism adds to wonderful storyline. What really captured my heart and soul was the realistic characters, that I couldn’t help but fall in love.

I completely related to social anxiety and perils of high school that Charlie experiences, along with the love triangle. Some of the most key elements of the book is the importance of friendship and family. The air of secrecy of witches and a magical world, along with the science had me captivated. The writing was seamless and I am impatiently waiting for the next installment.

This is one author that you should take notice and follow.. simply an amazing book.!
