Snap's town has a witch. And when Snap's dog goes missing, the first place she looks is the witch's house. She finds her dog there, recovering from being hit by a car, in the care of a woman named Jacks. She is a crocks-wearing, internet-savvy older woman who's collects roadkill, put their spirits to rest, and cleans and sells their articulated skeletons online. They make a deal: If Jacks teaches Snap how to take care of a crate of orphaned baby opossums that Snap rescued, Snap will assist Jacks with her work. But as Snap starts to gain an appreciation for what Jacks does and their friendship deepens . . . she realises that Jacks may in fact have real magic and that she also may have a connection with Snap's family's past.

Leyh skillfully balances magic and realism...readers familiar with Leyh's work in the Lumberjanes series will recognize her bouncy, dynamic art and figures that are nearly always in motion, keeping the energy high and the tone lively.--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books This endearingly offbeat story emphasizes found community, the importance of love and friendship, and a fierce commitment to individuality--all powerful themes for middle-grade readers. --Booklist, starred review Sweet and fierce, this is a must-have. --Kirkus, Starred Review Full of magic and humor, this intersectional, layered tale offers joyful and affirming depictions of social outsiders and comfortably complicated families. --Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review "Snapdragon is a unique and perfect story about a witch in the woods, girls who live in a trailer park, and the unexpected web of connections tying everyone together. It's a book about finding your power, in more ways than one. I laughed and cried, and you will, too!" --Molly Knox Ostertag, author of the Witch Boy series "An absolute treasure. It's kind, vibrant, and alive, with characters you'll love immediately--I had to reread it right away, because I wasn't ready to say goodbye yet! An unforgettable story about loving ourselves, those around us, and the world we inhabit." --Gale Galligan, author of the Kristy's Big Day graphic novel "Snapdragon is the shero for the girl in every reader, casting her magic and fire on every panel, every page. Volume 2, please!" --Rita Williams-Garcia, author of the Gaither Sisters series Snapdragon invigorates a classic hero's journey with magic and heart.--The AV Club
