September 1 marks the first day of the fall publishing season for us and we’re very happy to show off OMG… Is He Also a Witch?! — the third book in the OMG… series for early middle grade readers by Talia Aikens-Nunez.
Fifth-grade witch April Appleton can’t believe her eyes: a boy just made a large tree branch fall on her dad’s car in the middle of the night! When she gets to school, the mayhem continues, the heat is cranked way up, birds are flying through the hallways and there’s a boy standing in the corner quietly observing all of it.
While her friends, Grace and Eve, try to help, April realizes that she must figure out this craziness on her own. Is this boy the cause of all the trouble? Or is the new math teacher somehow involved? But with ghosts appearing and time stopping, April must take a deep breath and trust in the magical powers of herself and others to make things normal again.
The first book, OMG…Am I a Witch?! is an IBPA Benjamin Franklin Silver Award Winner. Talia writes wonderful stories using diverse characters and both the first and second books have been used in various literacy programs. We’ve also been getting some great reviews for this book on NetGalley. If you’d like to read a copy, please head over there, we’ll leave it up for requests, but only for the next few days, so grab it while you can!
