That Seriously Obnoxious Time I Was Stuck at Witch Rimelda’s One Hundredth Birthday Party, by Tina Connolly, August 26, 2015; 4,927 words
Rating: 3, Good, ordinary, read

Camellia is a non-magical teenager stuck looking after primary-school-aged witch kids.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: A smooth, satisfying read. Very nice the way all the loose ends get tied up. And the way justice is done. The matter-of-fact way the little kids handle magic reminds us of the matter-of-fact way little kids handle technology.

Con: No clue why Camellia is hanging out with this crowd. We suspect the reader needed to read the novel set in the same world to really understand everything that's going on.
