Reviews
"This book is pure magic and I was hooked from the very first page! My main question now is: how can I get Hasani to be my best friend?"--Lisa Greenwald, author of the My Life in Pink & Green trilogy
"Set in a modern-day Louisiana where technology and magic intertwine, Wildseed Witch is charming and intriguing, just like the Les Belles Desmoiselles witches. Readers will cheer Hasani, vibrant as a morning glory, as she embarks on a quest to own her magic and to find friendship, family, and forgiveness."--Rajani LaRocca, Newbery honor-winning author of Red, White, and Whole
"Readers will love the world [Dumas] creates, which brims with Black Girl Magic. Most, if not all, of the characters are Black, and Dumas weaves Louisiana's history of slavery into the girls' lessons and legacy of magic. She also intertwines magic with technology, giving this series starter a decidedly modern feel."--Booklist
"Dumas invites readers into a wonderful world of witchcraft that highlights the contributions of the diaspora; the infusion of Creole heritage and the acknowledgement of enslavement grounds this world without dimming its light. Readers will relate to the struggles of standing out, feeling inadequate, and accepting change." --Kirkus Reviews
"Dumas has crafted a delightful light fantasy novel filled with a diverse cast, fun, drama, and some lessons. . .Even with their magical abilities, Hasani and her classmates are a relatable and nuanced portrayal of girls their age." --School Library Journal
