Book Review: The Magnolia League by Katie Crouch

The Magnolia League (Magnolia League, #1)

The Magnolia League
Author: Katie Crouch
Publisher: Poppy 
Date Published: May 3rd 2011

After the death of her free-spirited mother, sixteen-year-old Alex Lee must leave her home in northern California to live with her wealthy grandmother in Savannah, Georgia. By birth, Alex is a rightful, if unwilling, member of the Magnolia League, Savannah's long-standing debutante society. She quickly discovers that the Magnolias have made a pact with a legendary hoodoo family, the Buzzards. The Magnolias enjoy youth, beauty and power. But at what price?

As in her popular adult novels, Crouch's poignant and humorous voice shines in this seductively atmospheric story about girls growing up in a magical Southern city.


The Magnolia League had an interesting beginning, quickly caught my attention, and made me want to read on. As I read more into the book secrets started to unravel, and you think those secrets would make the book more interesting, right? No, not at all. For me the secrets made me not like the book as much as I had in the beginning. But then again, i'm not the type of person that particularly like fantasy and magic books. It also got really confusing about midway into the book. The story line got jumbled and I didn't really understand where it was going. But things were all cleared and everything was explained by the end of the book, of  course. 

If  your into the fantasy and magic genre then you will for sure love The Magnolia League more than I did.
