We rated this book:


Sideways Pike uses her unique skills to do magic tricks for other students, which catches the attention of three popular girls that pay her to do a spell at their party. Their town always gets into the Halloween spirit, and this year Sideways is getting more than she bargained for. Sideways and her three new friends form their own coven, which takes Sideways on an unforgettable journey as she discovers the value of friendship, tries to catch the attention of a mysterious girl, and fights to stay a step ahead of dangerous witch hunters.

Sideways has carved her place out as a witch loner that does magic tricks for other students until her whole life is shaken after the popular girls to do a spell for Halloween. She soon forms a bond with them that is built upon female empowerment, support, and encouragement to be true to themselves. The Scapegracers balances out the witch elements against the teenage angst through the carefree spirit of youth and the bond between the girls. Hannah Abigail Clarke presents a fun teenage tone through the girls’ relationship as they plan parties, hang out, and get to know each other deeper than what’s on the surface. The story weaves romance throughout as Sideways tries to catch the attention of the lovely Madeline who is a mysterious and alluring presence that keeps appearing in her life at unexpected moments. Clarke breathes new life into the supernatural genre, giving a new voice to teenage witches and shining a light on the growing pains of getting older and magic.
