No Such Thing as a Witch by Ruth Chew (1971)

The only Ruth Chew I ever read as a child was The Witch's Buttons - which I loved and still love.  No Such Thing as A Witch isn't nearly as good as Buttons.  Maybe because Buttons also has nostalgia attached to it for me, I approach it with less of a critical eye.  But I think the characters are less developed and less interesting, as is the magic.   This wasn't boring; it just wasn't very interesting either.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

My favorite Ruth Chew book is still The Witch's Buttons. Chew wrote this book earlier in her writing career (her sophomore book); the characters and plot aren't very well developed. Neither is the magic.
