Okay folks, get ready for one of the MOST PERFECT GRAPHIC NOVELS EVER. This book felt like such a gift when I read it. Our main character Snapdragon stumbles into what she believes is the lair of the local evil witch-- turns out the local witch is a fantastically chill, cool, older lady named Jacks who ends up taking Snapdragon on as her apprentice. Together they discover friendship, learn amazing new kinds of magic, and uncover age-old love stories that may yet be fulfilled. The diverse representation in this book is SO stellar, and honestly this book brings me to joyful tears every time! Snapdragon is also a great example of the power of the graphic novel storytelling format--what a stunning piece of work!
