Akata Witch (Compact Disc)

Four teens with magical abilities, untrained but powerful; a mystical society that functions within the regular world, not openly but with great impact; a mystical being who was trained within the rules of the Leopard Society but who has gone bad, really bad, and needs to be dealt with; and elders who must hand off this task to kids despite its danger. Yes, it sounds familiar, but this is not Harry Potter; rather, it is a coming of age story, a story about friendships, determining who you are and how you will be, about standing up to what is wrong with what has come before. It is, in other words, what makes an incredible young adult book, and this one is indeed incredible. One of my favorite books this year!— Linda
