Title: So You Want to be a Wizard (Young Wizards #1)
Author: Diane Duane
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
Overview: Long before wizards were a fixture on the bestseller lists, Kit and Nita were working magic with readers of all ages. In honor of the twentieth anniversary of the Young Wizards series, So You Want to Be a Wizard is now available in a deluxe hardcover edition, featuring a new afterword from Diane Duane as well as the hard-to-find Kit and Nita short story “Uptown Local.”
Thirteen-year-old Nita, tormented by a gang of bullies because she won’t fight back, finds the help she needs in a library book on wizardry which guides her into another dimension.
The author has indicated that there will be a grey-asexual character in the next book in the series.
