Willow has spent most of her life as her mother's sidekick in a popular Las Vegas hypnotism show. So when she and her mom move back to their sleepy southern hometown to start over, she thinks she's in for a life of quiet normalcy. Except that her new life turns out to be anything but, when she kinda sorta hypnotizes Quinton, the hottest guy on the football team, to fall madly, deeply, head over heels in love with her. But what started out as an innocent way to make her best friend, Max, jealous soon gets way out of hand, and Willow begins to wonder if the mind - and more importantly, the heart - is something you can really control.

My Thoughts...
I have been dying to read this for a while and finally cleared enough time to get to it. It was totally worth the wait. I haven't read anything about hypnosis before and this was a pretty cool look at it. All Willow wants when her mom decides they should move back to there old home town is to reinvent herself, she wants to be in the spotlight instead of backstage. Willow happened to spend quite a bit of time backstage at her mothers Vegas hypnosis show. When her crazy dog sparks a meeting with the hottie from her new school, Willow is happy to have met said hottie but can't help her feelings for her best friend. Willow makes some new friends and dabbles with hypnosis and it brings us down a long bumpy road of humor, friendship, and hear ache. The antics were amusing until even as the reader you feel things might get out of control. In the end Willow learns quite a few lessons about family, love, life and hypnosis. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a cute quick read. I give this one 4 stars!
