“Magic is harder than it looks. Thirteen-year-old Moth Hush loves all things witchy. But she’s about to discover that witches aren’t just the stuff of movies, books, and spooky stories. When some eighth-grade bullies try to ruin her Halloween, something really strange happens. It turns out that Founder’s Bluff, Massachusetts, has a centuries-old history of witch drama. And, surprise: Moth’s family is at the center of it all!
When Moth’s new powers show up, things get totally out-of-control. She meets a talking cat, falls into an enchanted diary, and unlocks a hidden witch world. Secrets surface from generations past as Moth unravels the complicated legacy at the heart of her town, her family, and herself.”

Next to Pumpkin Heads, this was yet another adorable graphic novel that will give you all the fall feels!
The Okay Witch by Emma Steinkellner has been compared to Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Roller Girl, and although I haven’t read Roller Girl yet, I can definitely confirm there are some serious Sabrina vibes in this story.
Moth is so excited to discover her powers, but when her mom refuses to talk about anything related to their family history, she has no choice but to take her training into her own hands. With the help of her familiar, (a black cat, naturally) she delves into her mom’s past, quite literally through an enchanted diary, to learn more about her life and how it ties into the tumultuous history of their town, Founder’s Bluff.
The one thing I didn’t love about this graphic novel is actually the title – Moth is more than just okay! I have no other title option to offer, but I had to point that out that she is quite awesome 🙂 But other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this read!
