The Okay Witch is one of my favorite picks for younger readers who like the idea of spookier stories but aren’t ready to delve into the really scary stuff. The Okay Witch was a great blend of magic and small town mystery with a fantastic main character who was dealing with all kinds of real life drama on top of magic. There are high stakes and a great story without things getting too spooky.

The Hungry Ghost is a fantastic follow up.

This may actually be one of those series where I enjoy the second book even more than the first! The Hungry Ghost addresses some tough issues that young readers may very well be dealing with themselves like bullying and self-esteem. Moth, like many kids, is left to wonder if things would be different were she more outgoing, more daring, more popular. The thing is, though, Moth has magic on her side. And after meddling with things she probably shouldn’t have, Moth has to fight back against dark forces while also learning to accept herself as she is. Great story, wonderful message. I highly recommend this series! Read on to learn more and enter to win a copy of The Okay Witch and The Hungry Ghost so you can check it out for yourself!

About the Book

In this hilarious and heartwarming sequel to the bestselling and critically acclaimed graphic novel, The Okay Witch, half-witch Moth Hush uses magic to boost her confidence with disastrous results—perfect for fans of Raina Telgemeier and Molly Ostertag! 

Moth Hush is starting to settle into her newfound witch heritage and powers, but life at school continues to be rough. Even her best friend, Charlie, doesn’t entirely understand what it’s like for her to always be the one who gets mocked, and things only get worse when Moth’s mom starts dating one of the dorkiest teachers in the school! Then Moth gets hold of a mysterious charm that can unleash another version of herself—one who is confident, cool, and extremely popular. What could possibly go wrong?
