Check out the latest book from my friend Tina Connolly, the talented author of Ironskin (an innovative and thoughtful fantasy which I greatly enjoyed). Seriously Wicked is a bit of a departure into a clever, light-hearted, young adult style, and it looks to be a fun romp. I haven’t read it yet (it was just released today!), but I read the first chapter, and it made me smile.
Here’s the publisher’s description:
Camellia’s adopted mother wants Cam to grow up to be just like her. Problem is, Mom’s a seriously wicked witch.
Cam’s used to stopping the witch’s crazy schemes for world domination. But when the witch summons a demon, he gets loose–and into Devon, the cute new boy at school.
Suddenly Cam’s got bigger problems than passing Algebra. Her friends are getting zombiefied. Their dragon is tired of hiding in the RV garage. For being a shy boy-band boy, Devon is sure kissing a bunch of girls. And a phoenix hidden in the school is going to explode on the night of the Halloween Dance.
To stop the demon before he destroys Devon’s soul, Cam might have to try a spell of her own. But if she’s willing to work spells like the witch…will that mean she’s wicked too?
