Review: Magical Mischief by Laura Greenwood and L.A. Boruff

There is a big difference between being home-schooled and going to the Academy, and Lou is getting a crash course on the first day.


Tallulah aka “Lou” thought her parents had rules, but their rules are nothing compared to the rules of hierarchy at the Academy. On her first day, she has to remember who she can talk to and who she cannot – no crossing of the breeds. The first problem with that is that she is hiding a secret about which breed she is.

The second problem is that she comes immediately to the attention of the biggest frenemy that everyone has at the school: Kristi and her Sparkles. Her new roommate wants her to befriend them to enact a plan of revenge, but Lou just wants to remain under the radar.

Then there is the problem of the attraction she feels towards Kristi’s ex-boyfriend…and his two best friends. 

Laura Greenwood and L.A. Boruff are back with a new reverse harem series “Magic and Metaphysics Academy” and their first book Magical Mischief. For those who read the “Valentine Pride” series, this takes place several years after Hannah is now only a few years away from attending the Academy herself. For those who have not read the series, no worries this series does not really connect to it other than mentioning the family from the other series.

Lou is advanced in her magical training in some areas except in how to take care of herself. Whereas most of the students at the Academy have been practicing a self-serving magic for a number of years which is something Lou has no experience with. I will say that this book reminded me a great deal of the movie Mean Girls (Dir. Mark Waters, 2004). 

The relationship between Lou and her roommates and the Sparkles could have been taken right from the movie. It is that familiar to me. The only thing that separates it for me is Lou’s relationship with the guys, but even in that area she “dumbs” herself down in knowledge in a class where she has advanced knowledge to get the attention of a guy. Cady did the same thing in math class in Mean Girls.

I still liked the book, I just drew a lot of comparisons between the book and the movie.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
