found that one of the books had a loose thread at the top of its spine. It was one of those So You Want to Be a . . . books, a series on careers. So You Want to Be a Pilot, and a Scientist . . . a Writer. But his one said, So You Want to Be a Wizard.
I don't belive this, Nina thought. She shut the book and stood there holding it in
her hand, confused, amazed, suspicious--and delighted. If it was a joke, it was a great one. If it wasn't . . . ?
Thirteen-year-old Nita's life is forever changed when she discovers an incredible library book that transforms her from the constant target of bullies to a practicing wizard. As she learns all about spells and magic, Nita discovers a special affinity with living creatures, especially trees and plants. Her first conversation with a tree results in finding Kit, another young wizard. They begin to practice spells together, and soon find themselves on a dangerous mission--involving a terrifying New York City, devoid of life except for vicious helicopters, bloodthirsty cabs, and the like--to rescue the Book of Night with Moon, an ancient book that holds the key to preserving the universe. This is the first book in the engaging Young Wizards series.
