My name is Kestrel.
Never call me Susan.
Who ever heard of a witch named Susan?
A year ago, I was on the white-magic side. Lately, I've been leaning toward the black. I blame the universe. What's the point in being a nice little white witch in the universe I've got? If I could choose my own universe, I'd be a white witch in it. But black makes a lot more sense in this universe.
Not that I'm complaining. A witch never complains. But if I did, I'd have a lot to complain about. For instance: Richard Milhous Nixon High.
What's a teen witch to do when she's stuck in the most unmagical high school in the universe? Create her own "majix." Take notes. And above all, avoid nasty classmates, heartless grown-ups and boys who may prove a little too distracting for a serious teen witch to handle.
This is a book about finding yourself. Kestral is an abnormal girl. She never quite fits in. She befriends a girl who is a witch and becomes one also. During this time, Kestral aka Susan, causes a lot of grief for her parents. Her dad especially. Her dad doesn’t understands her. Instead of understanding her, he gets angry with her and she just pushes back. One day her dad yelled her to get off the roof. She makes a smart remark, making her father go up the tree to get her. As he does, he has an heart attack, falling off.
