Publisher's Summary

Every year, in the magical town of Ravenskill, Witchlings who participate in the Black Moon Ceremony are placed into covens and come into their powers as full-fledged witches.

And 12-year-old Seven Salazar can't wait to be placed in the most powerful coven with her best friend! But on the night of the ceremony, in front of the entire town, Seven isn't placed in one of the five covens. She's a Spare!

Spare covens have fewer witches, are less powerful, and are looked down on by everyone. Even worse, when Seven and the other two Spares perform the magic circle to seal their coven and cement themselves as sisters, it doesn't work! They're stuck as Witchlings - and will never be able to perform powerful magic.

Seven invokes her only option: the impossible task. The three Spares will be assigned an impossible task: If they work together and succeed at it, their coven will be sealed and they'll gain their full powers. If they fail.... Well, the last coven to make the attempt ended up being turned into toads. Forever.

But maybe friendship can be the most powerful magic of all….

With action-packed adventure, a coven of quirky witchlings, Claribel A. Ortega's signature humor and girl-power vibes, this middle grade Latinx witch story is truly a modern classic.

Great for Harry Potter fans!

I've always a sucker for the underdog stories. this is the perfect example of one of those stories. and if you like Harry Potter you'll love Witchlings. I'm glad I chose this to listen to while traveling out of state and can't wait for book two to learn more about the 12 towns and see what the spares do next.

I absolutely adore this!

I enjoyed this book so much! The world of Ravenskill is fascinating. It's so easy to love the Witchlings. I liked the parallels of our society and the treatment of Spares in Ravenskill. I was a little disappointed that the big reveal at the end. After reading about the abuse and prejudice towards the Spares, I feel like the ending could have been improved by showing more progress instead of brief mentions. The other Spare Witch Pixel would have been a great way to show how all the Spares' lives are changing. I also understand that this is intended for children. Overall, I love this book and the positive messages!
