4 out of 5 stars on GoodReads

I really enjoyed this graphic novel about a girl who discovers a magic book that will change her life! Willow is a nerd being bullied by the popular girls at school, but she has friends and a great job working in a library. The book gives her the power to rewrite her life, but of course, magic comes with a price. Willow uses the book to become one of the popular girls, and her life at school seems to be better, but at a cost. If only, Willow can realize the truth before it’s too late, she might be able to salvage her friendships with the people who truly care about her.
I loved the struggle that Willow goes through! She has some really good character development, and I loved the complex relationships she has with her friends. It was really interesting to see Willow’s perspective change throughout the book as she learns and grows.

I appreciated how the writing is concise but forceful, saying a lot in a few words, and delivering an emotional connection to each scene.

The artwork is wonderful, and really pulls you into the story. I like the muted colorscheme with gray and blue.
