Summary (Goodreads): A modern retelling of the German fairytale "Tristan and Isolde", Tris and Izzie is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until -- she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking herself accidentally, and falling in love with Tristan, the new guy at school.

Review: I've never heard of the German fairytale before. The reason I picked this book out was the cover, I have a bad habit of that, I judge books by their covers, and to me this book was a little disappointing. I read other books by Mette Ivie Harrison, and liked them. The characters were a little flat, the main character, Izzie, was childish, and whiny. The story was rushed and things in it happened for no apparent reason. The relationship between Tris and Izzie was so abrupt, and the love just happened, all at once, I know a love potion was involved but to me it was too fast.
