Review of The Rules of Magic-Alice Hoffman

This prequel to Practical Magic is delightful.  Three siblings, witches all, are protected from magic by their mother; they are told to avoid black cats, red shoes, wearing black and walking in the moonlight.  But when they are forced to live with their aunt, all of the rules change and they are told to embrace their magic.  The only rule left is to not fall in love; because of the curse, it will end in tragedy.  Of course, avoiding love is easier said than done, and this novel follows the course of love for Franny, Jet & Vincent.  All of the characters are complex and wonderful, and you find yourself hoping that they can break the curse.  4 Elves - Highly recommended for mature teen and adults
