   "Double, double, toil, and trouble...." witches, witches everywhere... in this case, even at the mall. Revealers, Amanda Marrone's modern take on a timeless theme--conniving witches--is entertaining, but shallow. Don't expect too much more than stereotypical teenage angst, albeit with a supernatural twist.
   Definitely for a more mature audience, Revealers reveals to us a world of butt-kicking teen witches who, often against their better judgment, help rid the mortal world of vampires, werewolves, and other similar baddies. All this takes place is the midst of high school chemistry tests, flirtatious romances, and annoyingly controlling mothers.
   This book was a quick summer read at best, and not very memorable, but reading it was at least less painful than being blown to bits by a pissed off sophomore with a pointy hat and a broom.
