In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White witches, who are good; Black witches, who are evil; and sixteen-year-old Nathan, who is both. Nathan’s father is the world’s most powerful and cruel Black witch, and his mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides. In the tradition of Patrick Ness and Markus Zusak, Half Bad is a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive, a story that will grab hold of you and not let go until the very last page.
Spellbound staffer Leslie says:
I could not put this book down… until I got close to the end, when I was trying to stretch it out because I didn’t want it to be over! The writing is engaging and thoughtful, even as the action keeps you in suspense. Even readers in the “fain” world will relate to Nathan and his story… and be begging for more. I’ve personally recommended this book more than any other title in the store so far this year.
