From an author that’s been deemed by London’s Daily Telegraph as “the new J.K. Rowling” comes a fictional series we can’t wait to read more of. To celebrate the paperback release of Half Bad and the upcoming release of its sequel Half Wild on March 24 (we’re counting down the days), we’re giving away a copy of the first book, plus a minimalist-chic backpack!
Written by Sally Green, Half Bad follows the life of 16-year-old Nathan, a witch who lives in modern-day England. But he’s not your typical witch—born from parents of differing sides (his mother, now dead, was a white witch, and his father, a black witch), he doesn’t quite belong anywhere. His father, who is part of the evil side, has him locked up, and Nathan needs to find a way to get out before he turns 17, the age when witches come into their own—otherwise he will die. Escaping proves to be a difficult task though; it’s hard to know whom he can trust, even when it comes to his family and the girl he loves. Half Wild continues Nathan’s story as he’s being hunted by both sides, and they’ve shown that they’ll stop at nothing to capture him—and destroy his father.
Enter now below to find out what happens in Half Bad—and you’ll also win a carry-all backpack in black or white!
