Snap's town had a witch. At least, that's how the rumor goes. But in reality, Jacks is just a crocks-wearing, internet-savvy old lady who sells roadkill skeletons online — after doing a little ritual to put their spirits to rest. It's creepy, sure, but Snap thinks it's kind of cool, too.

They make a deal: Jacks will teach Snap how to take care of the baby opossums that Snap rescued, and Snap will help Jacks with her work. At the same time, she's also supporting her friend Louis as he transitions and becomes Lulu, and dealing with her mother's abusive ex. As Snap starts to get to know Jacks, she realizes that Jacks may in fact have real magic — and a connection with Snap's family's past. Kat Leyh's Snapdragon is a magical realist graphic novel about a young girl whose friendship with her town’s witch leads to discovering strange magic within herself.

"As the self-possessed girl develops an interest in vertebrate anatomy, she spends time in her trailer park home evolving a meaningful friendship with trans neighbor Lu, honing an interest in frightening tales, and navigating the fallout of her hardworking single mother’s most recent relationship. She also discovers that Jacks is deeply connected to her own family — and just might be an actual witch.... Full of magic and humor, this intersectional, layered tale offers joyful and affirming depictions of social outsiders and comfortably complicated families." — Publishers Weekly
