Witch for Hire

Witch for Hire

It’s Cody’s first day of high school. When her sister won’t let her sit with the cool kids, she is stuck at the loser’s table. There she meets Faye, a girl in a witch hat with similar life skills. Faye’s a witch—but not a Witch for Hire—at least not yet…

This teen graphic novel is a mashup of Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Gossip Girl. Shy Shelbi has an online program of “self-help” to turn losers into heroes. But she also cyberbullies people into carrying out her “pranks”. Her pranks are vicious: pushing someone down a flight of stairs, and texting someone to kill themselves. Can newbie witch Faye stop Shy Shelbi? Will Cody turn into a hero?

Witch for Hire has an interesting plot that kept me engaged throughout. The identity of the real loser in the book was a genuine surprise. Faye is an intriguing character and the book’s conclusion definitely leaves room for a sequel. 4 stars!

Thanks to Amulet Books, ABRAMS Kids, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
