Middle school is hard enough, but when Moth Hush realizes that she's from a long line of witches, it gets much harder! This graphic novel is great for anyone who likes a little magic with their comics! --KelseyB_KCMO, Plaza Branch

This book was soooo cute. Its great to read book about becoming comfortable in your own skin. The main character, Moth, is your average teen in school who doesn't fit in with her peers. She later finds out how unique she really is and begins to embrace herself. As a black woman I have to say is was lovely to see this beautiful brown family live their life on the pages. The illustration and colors were magical which just added to the characters' quirkiness. Easily one of my favorites book from 2019!

One of the most touching, well written, and funniest graphic novels I have read in a while. And it is Juvenile?! I would argue there is something there for every age and I highly recommend it.

Moth's quirky, smile-inducing introduction to her witch family history is full of good humor, warm emotions and excellent art. Although it leans into some tropes for both the plot and the dialogue, they almost help the story rather than hinder it as the tale of the Hush witches feels familiar and personal, while Moth's adorable innocence coats the experience with an appropriate sense of wonder. I see all the kids enjoying this one. I'd love to see a sequel.

This was a delightful book about many things; witches and magical powers, but also a mother-daughter relationship from a few angles. Moth is a great protagonist and this story is good for many ages, say 8-14. The art was well suited to the tale.

Sometimes, the history that we learn in school isn't the truth...

I enjoyed following Moth as she journeyed through her family's past as a way to understand her own present. I especially liked Moth's evolving relationship with her mother. They share a deep love, but differences in experience and perspective that make them approach magic in very different ways. In the end, the story validates them both while allowing them both to grow.

Also, Moth is just a lot of fun! And she has a talking cat "familiar." I'm jealous!

I'm a sucker for coming into your powers witch stories and this one did not disappoint! This story follows Moth as her witch powers start to manifest. It explores discrimination and prejudice, the strength of friendship, and the meaning of family and staying true to oneself. The illustrations and coloring are bright and fun with great tiny details to keep an eye out for. Love the story, love the art!

In my opinion, I like this book. It's about a girl named Moth who finds out she's a witch. I'd recommend this book.

A middle grade graphic novel all about coming into your witch powers. Reminded me of Sabrina the Teenage Witch from the late 1990s, not too dark, plenty of fun and funny moments.
