    1. Reviewed on Lili Lost in a BookAfter Zoe's Frog Fiasco last Halloween, the Council decided that the greatest Potions Master of all time would be tutoring Zoe in all things magic. Zoe was, of course, elated! She is a huge fan of Dr. Finnegan! She was going to learn from the best of the best, and he was going to help her find substitutions for ingredients such as (her next project) unicorn horn.There is one slight problem, though: although he is in his 90s, Dr. Finnegan (or Finn) is young, gorgeou [...]

    2. More of a 2.5Mrs. Beamer's Review:I really wanted to like this bookI really, really did. It's the first book I received as a result of my blogging, and I was flattered and excited beyond words. BUTI just couldn't get into it. At first, I thought my struggle to get through the book was related to pre-Christmas "crazies". Silly me. We all know nothingeps us away from a book we are dying to read :) While I'm not saying teens won't enjoy this bookI am saying that I, as an adult, found it lacking in [...]

    3. I think I liked this book even better than the first book in the series, Stirring Up Trouble. Finn is definitely a great addition to the series, and I love the dynamic between Zoe and him. He is the fun and quirky mentor who is brilliant, but not quite up to date on modern life (think Myrnin from the Morganville Vampire series without the crazy). I wasn't quite sure about Jake as a love interest in the first book, but he is growing on me. Anya is still annoying, and I keep waiting for Zoe to fir [...]

    4. The Trouble With TutorsThis series must be read in order. The first book is Stirring Up Trouble. This is the second book. There is a companion story called Camp Cauldron that can be read at any time. I can't wait to find out what Milo and Zoe get up to in the next book Here Comes Trouble!!!Zoe is paying for her Toad Fiasco by being tutored (monitored) by the most advanced potions expert in the world. Doctor Martin Finnegan is also being punished for making himself young again (he was 90s now he' [...]

    5. Meh, I thought it would be better. At least I hoped, but alas, it didn't turn out as good as I hoped. Zoe is now so flipping annoying. THE. ENTIRE. TIME. Ok, so I understand, she wants everyone to be happy. Especially her mom, but the way she shows it is just so dumb. "Oh she can't like my teacher, I'll just zap up a potion and hope it works." Absolutely annoying, and the whole not-standing-up-to-your-friend gets old really fast. And then there was the ending. The ending was just so abrupt, they [...]

    6. The more I read of Juli Alexander's work the more I love it! The average teenager thinks they have it rough, but what would it be like to be more than a normal teenager? Sabrina the Teenage Witch has nothing on Zoe!This little potion brewer has a roller coaster of successes and failures, highs and lows in this funny and delightful work. By turns intense, light-hearted and mildly dramatic story drew me in. I know it's geared for young adults but I consider this a tale that even mature adults coul [...]

    7. The chaos in Zoe's life continues in this second book of the series. Now she has her witch friend in on the Halloween celebration at Jake's home, causing the world's frog population to explode. She almost looses her magic, but her brilliance in finding potion substitutes allows the council to give her a second chance. Now she has a legendary potions teacher, who unfortunately looks like he's a teenager thanks to a bit of self serving magic! She also has a jealous boyfriend and a whole lot more h [...]

    8. really cute follow up to another by this author as a young potions witch discovers yet more consequences for using potions and making them without rechecking the ingredients carefully! Someday she will become a potions master- I mean she did create an alternate for toadd slime and was able to come close to a substitute for unicorn horn! Enjoy!

    9. I liked this book, not as much as the 1st which I totally loved but I have to say that Zoe irritated me a LOT with her meddling with her mother, she was really childish but I was really happy that she got punished, even though I'd have liked if she had lost her powers I think it would have been a fitting punishment for her selfish behavior.Now I hope the 3rd book comes out soon.

    10. I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel to Stirring Up Trouble. Ms Alexander's characters are always entertaining, but I especially liked her handling of Finn in this book. And her dialogue is always sparkling. It's a fun book for any age group.

    11. Very similar to the first, this was a quick, light read revolving around magic spiced with a bit of teen drama.

    12. #2 in the series is just as delightful as the first one was. Resolved the book's major conflicts but left enough loose ends to keep me wondering until I read #3. Maybe rushed the conclusion a bit.

    13. I liked it it was cute and the story was never repetitive or boring I would read a another book about these characters.

    14. A great follow-up to Stirring Up Trouble! Still enjoying these characters, and the world they live in. I'm hoping there will be more forthcoming!

    15. I am almost ashamed to admit how much enjoyed this book. Zoe and her friends and family were very believable and lovable characters. I look forward to spending more time with them.
