"Something stopped Nita's hand as it ran along the bookshelf. She looked and found that one of the books had a loose thread at the top of its spine. It was one of those So You Want to Be a... books, a series on careers. So You Want to Be a Pilot, and a Scientist... a Writer. But his one said, So You Want to Be a Wizard."
At first, Nita figures it's a joke, but when she takes the Wizard's Oath, she finds her name magically appears on the list of wizards. Soon, she and another new wizard, Kit Rodriguez, find themselves caught up in a battle to stop the dark Lone Power. But perhaps clever Nita and Kit can find a way to turn even the Lone Power towards the light. This exciting and entertaining fantasy series opener will have kids imagining what they might find on their own library shelves!
Nita's adventures continue in the rest of the Young Wizards series.
In the spirit of Madeleine L'Engle's classic A Wrinkle in Time, this is a fascinating and powerfully involving story about two lonely kids who are inadvertently caught up in the never-ending battle between good and evil. The problems of everyday adolescent life and the mysteries of magic are perfectly blended, along with plenty of humor and suspense.
