Hexed: Don't Get Mad, Get Powers. - Hexed (Paperback)Julia Tuffs (author)
- In stock
'It's hard to come up with a fresh witch plot, but Julia Tuffs has achieved it ... reminiscent of 'Sex Education' and Jill Murphy's 'The Worst Witch', but with it's own strong, personal flavour' - The Times
'Hexed is pure fierce magical genius. I can't wait for everyone to read this book' - Kate Weston, author of Diary of a Confused Feminist
Jessie Jones has just discovered she's a witch. Too bad there isn't a hex to make slimy Callum Henderson and his friends disappear ... yet. The first book in a feisty, funny YA series about discovering your place and your power.
New girl, new school, new life on stupid island - thanks Mum. All Jessie Jones wants is to keep her head down, avoid school douchebag Callum Henderson, and coast - middle-of-the-road-like. But when strange powers start to manifest during crippling period pains, flying under the radar seems highly unlikely.
Can Jessie embrace her new-found witchiness, control her erratic powers and work out a way to bring down Callum and his cult of toxic masculinity?
Sabrina the Teenage Witch meets Sex Education - a YA debut perfect for fans of Holly Bourne.

Witty and engaging, and taking on period taboo. YA readers will love it * Lucy Cuthew, author of Blood Moon *
Powerful & empowering, fun & FURIOUS. This is a riveting & timely tale of sexism & sexual harassment in secondary schools, with added witchery. I loved the female friendships, & the island setting which runs through the story like a cool breeze * Nicola Penfold, author of Where the World Turns Wild *
