Congratulations to Sarah Jean Horwitz on the October release of this soon to be classic.

Twelve-year-old Clementine Morcerous always thought she’d become a Dark Overlord like her father. Strong. Ruthless. Evil. She’s studied the spells and read the books.  She’s ready. But fate has other plans. When a witch curses her father she must find a way to save him. She turns to magical animals, witches and boys who will become knights for help only to discover that what she really needs is not bigger or darker magic. What she needs is far more dangerous, the courage to do GOOD even if it means losing everything.

So happy to welcome this feisty girl hero to the middle grade scene! I hope this book is the start of a series.

I would like to thank the publisher, Algonquin Young Readers, for providing me with this ARC in exchange for my honest review.
