Half Bad is Sally Green’s very first novel and I was totally immersed. Nathan Byrn is 16 and lives in a cage. Set apart by the secret society of witches of contemporary Britain, Nathan faces alienation, survival and sacrifice in this supernatural thriller. From my perspective of this story, it is hard to sort the good witches from the evil as both sides do unforgivable things. These witches are divided by hatred of each other but united by the fear of a boy born of both sides – ‘wanted by no one; hunted by everyone’. It is macabre and suspenseful and I’m looking forward to reading the next in the series Half Wild. The film rights have been bought by Fox 2000 and Karen Rosenfelt, who produced The Twilight Saga so get your hands on these young adult books from your library NOW.
