the regulars book coverReviewed by Benish Khan

The Regulars by Georgia Clark is a hilarious and a witty novel. A light and entertaining read, the book explores the society’s obsession with beauty and its unrealistic standards for women.

Evie, Krista, and Willow are best friends in their mid-twenties living in New York. They’re normal, everyday people with average lives and average looks. As many normal people do, the women experience crises pertaining to their love and work lives. Unlike normal people, however, they come across a magic potion called Pretty that can make them “beautiful.” The potion makes the three best friends gorgeous, tall, and curvy with beautiful hair.

Throughout The Witches of Cambridge, each woman is in the middle of a conflict, and they rely on each other—and sometimes a little bit of magic—to get through their trials. Amandine suspects her husband of cheating on her, and her student Noa possesses the ability to see others’ truths. Noa regards her gift as a curse, and will do just about anything
