    !

    One night, in a sleepy and paranormal New England town, a witch follows a white wolf into the woods. She doesn’t know what to expect, but it most certainly isn’t a horse demon fighting with her childhood crush! With the help of one another (and some cute grandmas) they unfold a story about a cult and people wanting to harness werewolf magic for their own.

    And the two main characters of this graphic novel are everything! One, being Nova, who is Chinese-American, and still coping with the loss of her parents, while living with her two grandmothers (be still, my heart). All of these women are witches and collect rare spell books! And Tam, who is also Chinese-American, and a nonbinary werewolf who grew up with Nova, but recently left their family who wasn’t very kind to them.

    And if I haven’t already sold you with the plot and the five star rating, this is also just a story about two young adults learning who they want to be, both separately and together. Nova and Tam are both dealing with hurt from their parents, and even though it is a different kind of hurt, they are there for one another, and unconditionally support one another. It’s beautiful, and powerful, and I had the biggest smile on my face while reading from the first to last page.

    Overall, this really was the queer, magical story that I’ve always wanted. I loved the rep, I loved the story, I loved the illustrations, I love the banter, and I truly love both of these main characters so very much. I can’t wait to see what

    and Suzanne do next! Also, I’m totally buying mooncakes on the way home tomorrow, because your girl has such a craving.

    I got to meet both creators at

    and they were so kind! Even though I was probably a little awkward and called Wendy birb royalty.

    This was absolutely

    . I loved everything about this. The characters, the witchy vibes, the representation, the illustrations, the relationships, EVERYTHING! I can't wait to get a final copy when it comes out in October so I can see all of the full colour illustrations.

    I never knew how much I needed this precious graphic novel about a queer hard-of-hearing witch and a nonbinary werewolf (both Chinese-American) childhood-friends-to-lovers relationship, but WOW, here we are and this is going to be one of my favorite releases of the year, no doubt at all.

    Because I'm having a hard time putting into normal review formatting how much I loved this, let the bullets do their thing:

    • DIVERSITY FOR DAAAAYYYYYS

    • Not only are both MCs Chinese-American and queer, but Nova has two grandmas in a relationship with each other, too?! KILLING ME WITH CUTENESS, Y’ALL

    • Such sweet and wholesome witchy rep, please give me more stories about good witches interacting with nature and doing sweet protective craft ♥

    • This art is adorable, full stop, and can we just take a moment to appreciate the precious quiet detail of Tam’s ears?!

    • Tam uses they/them pronouns (and even corrects other characters) and the other characters are so respectful of them!

    • Multiple references to Nova’s hearing aids ♥

    • Nova’s bestie is the obligatory skeptic character who’s also a trip and ships Nova/Tam so hard, A++ wing-woman over here

    • Everything is just so wholesome and precious and we stan 😭

    I seriously can't recommend this highly enough and I hope everyone picks it up and obsesses over it when it releases this October! 😍🎃🔮

    This will be one of the books that I will buy for sure when it comes out although I’ve already read it. It has everything that I want in one book and the representation of someone who has a hearing disability is really nice. 💛

    I am pretty much just a heart eyes pile of smush which, to be frank, is an excellent book recommendation in itself. This reminded me of

    and maybe a little of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch (but this is queerer and softer). It was just a delight! I could thoroughly read an entire series about Tam and Nova!!

    I am pretty much just a heart eyes pile of smush which, to be frank, is an excellent book recommendation in itself. This reminded me of

    and maybe a little of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch (but this is queerer and softer). It was just a delight! I could thoroughly read an entire series about Tam and Nova!!

    it has such a lot of loving rep; with Tam being nonbinary, Nova is Deaf and wears hearing aids, and they're both Chinese/American! Nova's grandmas are a queer couple. Nova has an epic strong female friendship too, like I totally loved it?! This book does better female friendships in 250 pages with just pictures than I've seen full blown YA books do. Step up, literature. 👏🏻This is the content we deserve.

    And Nova and Tam are so cute. Like when they BLUSH, I am just 😍

    Tam is on the run (for reasons not disclosed immediately) and they're also a shapeshifting werewolf while Nova's family are a long line of witches. They were childhood friends that lost contact, but they find each other again when Tam runs into a demon in the woods. But there are hidden reasons the demon is here...

    The art is incredible, so emotive and fluid and fun. The cooking scenes made me downright hungry, how dare u, and the family love and inclusivity and wholesomeness and epic (and maybe sinister...) magical plot will truly capture your imagination. It's SOFT. I love.

  • Teodora

    I see a very adorable graphic novel about witches and sweets, I automatically and unequivocally press 'want to read'.

    No questions asked.

    And it was worth it because it was soo cute and funny and lovely! I really loved it!

  • Whitney Atkinson

    This book was charming and a fresh perspective from a diverse cast. I loved that the love interest is non-binary and the main character wears hearing aids, and all were discussed so naturally. This is definitely a great book to come out in October because the cozy and fall vibe of this book is definitely there. But although it was quick and cute, I found it to be a bit cookie cutter and generic, plot-wise. It almost reads like a middle grade b

    This book was charming and a fresh perspective from a diverse cast. I loved that the love interest is non-binary and the main character wears hearing aids, and all were discussed so naturally. This is definitely a great book to come out in October because the cozy and fall vibe of this book is definitely there. But although it was quick and cute, I found it to be a bit cookie cutter and generic, plot-wise. It almost reads like a middle grade because the events occur formulaically, the characters make questionable decisions that force them to suffer the consequences, and there is a bit of instalove. I guess what I was wishing for was more emotional depth to the characters. Still, I enjoyed my reading experience despite the ARC I read being unfinished (half the art wasn't colored in), so I'm sure the final version will be stunning and this book will be a lot of people's jam.

    It could've been better.

    Let's start with what I adored this graphic novel.

    I enjoyed the drawing style. It is gorgeous. I really like that the main character is non-binary and another protagonist is half Chinese-half American queer witch. I think the diversity works very well in this novel.

    The family dynamic and friendship is powerful. It is a vital part of the comic.

    I don't like the in medias res beginning. This novel didn't have a reasonable starting point or accurate ending. I hate the in

    I don't like the in medias res beginning. This novel didn't have a reasonable starting point or accurate ending. I hate the insta love. We didn't know the character's past.

    I don't understand the title. Why is it 'Mooncake'? I don't remember any of that.

    Overall, it is just okay. It was sometimes monotonous. The story didn't hold my attention.

    I gave it 3 stars. It was a fast read. I wouldn't recommend buying it if you can borrow it from the library.
