Staff Reviews


A pitch-perfect sequel to Molly's The Witch Boy. The new characters we meet are instantly likable and relatable. The themes of the previous graphic novel are explored in greater depth as the consequences of Aster's magical talents seep out into the larger world they inhabit. People can change for the better and old wounds can be healed— no-one is irredeemable.

— Parke

Description


From the creator of the acclaimed graphic novel The Witch Boy comes a new adventure set in the world of magic and shapeshifting -- and ordinary kids just trying to make friends.

Aster and his family are adjusting to his unconventional talent for witchery; unlike the other boys in his family, he isn't a shapeshifter. He's taking classes with his grandmother and helping to keep an eye on his great-uncle whose corrupted magic wreaked havoc on the family. Meanwhile, Aster's friend from the non-magical part of town, Charlie, is having problems of her own -- a curse has tried to attach itself to her. She runs to Aster and escapes it, but now the friends must find the source of the curse before more people -- normal and magical alike -- get hurt.
