Moth Hush imagined life would be better once she learned magic. Her mom, however, will only let her learn small spells and her best friend Charlie just keeps telling her to ignore the school bullies. So when Moth finds a charm that promises to make her popular, she jumps at the chance to use it. The only trouble is, the charm holds an evil power that’s been waiting a long time for a chance to escape…. Sequel to The Okay Witch.
Ms. Krysta says: “The Okay Witch and the Hungry Shadow is a beautifully-written story about accepting one’s self just the way they are. Though Moth Hush longs to be like the popular girls at school, she eventually learns (courtesy of an evil spirit) that true strength lies in celebrating everything that makes a person unique. She also finds her voice in the process, choosing to stand up to the school bullies–and the bystanders–whom everyone else wants her to ignore. Filled with heart and humor, this is a story with a satisfying ending. But it hopefully won’t be the end of Moth’s magical adventures!”
