About the Book

Half Bad

In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White witches, who are good; Black witches, who are evil; and 16-year-old Nathan, who is both. Nathan’s father is the world’s most powerful and cruel Black witch, and his mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides. Trapped in a cage, beaten and handcuffed, Nathan must escape before his 17th birthday, at which point he will receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch --- or else he will die. But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is tracked, when there is no one safe to trust --- not even family, not even the girl he loves?

In the tradition of Patrick Ness and Markus Zusak, HALF BAD is a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive, a story that will grab hold of you and not let go until the very last page.
