Enchantment by Charlotte Abel
Channie (short for Enchantment) is part of a magical family. It's real hard to hide your talent when you're living in town and going to a public school full of "empties". People without magic find magic fearful. And Channie doesn't want to be noticed...

Channie is sixteen and wants to be kissed. She's never had the opportunity and her parents don't want her to mess with the non-magical kids, but Channie isn't listening. She kisses a young man she met at the park one night and he thought she'd tasered him, so it wasn't starting out well...
Channie's father is on the run, her mother has dug up the Book of Death, and the other magical clan wants to kill them, so Channie doesn't really have time to pursue a romance, but she really feels that she and Josh connect in a way that's beyond friendship or lust. Will she live long enough to find out?
This is a fastpaced tale with lots of excitement, spells gone wrong, and high hormones. There are contradictions in the magical rhymes and sacrifices made along the way to the end of the story. It kept me reading and has me waiting for the next story.
Why not grab a copy at 99 cents and see if it hooks your interest, too?
