Hexed

10.50

New girl, new school, new life on stupid island – thanks Mum. All Jessie Jones wants is to keep her head down, avoid school douchebag Callum Henderson, and coast – middle-of-the-road-like. But when strange powers start to manifest during crippling period pains, flying under the radar seems highly unlikely. Can Jessie embrace her new-found witchiness, control her erratic powers and work out a way to bring down Callum and his cult of toxic masculinity?

    I love this book so much! A funny, heartwarming and righteous-rage-inducing witchy story that reads like Netflix’s Sabrina meets Moxy (but on the Isle of Wight, with a cat called Dave) – Hexed tackles toxic masculinity, social double-standards and bullying head-on, without ever feeling like an ‘issues’ book.

    Instead, this kickass coming-of-age story offer hilarity & magical hijinks as Jessie and her new friends find themselves into taking action against the gang of misogynistic ‘cool boys’, entirely due to the inaction/ outright victim blaming of any of ‘responsible’ adults supposed to deal with this stuff! In other words, it’s my favourite trop (“teens take down the bad guy, because the adults are useless”) with a magical feminist twist!

    Fans of All Our Hidden Gifts and Sex Education will love it – I can’t wait for the sequel!
