The XYZs of Being Wicked

When a young witch goes off to boarding school, she discovers powers that leave her with a challenging choice.

Eleven-year-old Hallie is more thrilled than you might think to be shipping off to boarding school. After seeing how horrible “normal” kids can be—kids like her former BFF, Kendall Scott—Hallie figures The Dowling Academy School of Witchcraft will be a welcome fresh start. Plus, it’s a chance to make her dad proud that she’s continuing family traditions and becoming the best kind of witch, just like her legendary great-great-grandmother.

But when Hallie arrives at Dowling, she’s dismayed to discover her roommate will be none other than awful Kendall. And when Hallie’s witching talents take a turn for the dark side, she must determine whether it’s abilities or choices that distinguish the good from the wicked.I'm a paragraph.

"Totally adorable- tween girls will eat this up! Getting revenge on the mean girl with a well-placed spell? The best!" Jenn Malone


"I love supernatural stories and this is story incorporates all of the things I love about M!x books with that. Hallie is a character young girls can relate to, even though she has the gift of magic. Her real struggles with making friends and feeling like she doesn't fit in is something every young girl deals with at one time or another. I highly recommend this book for readers of all ages!" Stephanie Faris


"Hallie is such a great main character. I like how she perseveres through it all, and even makes a wonderful friend in the process." This Kid Reviews Books

Accidentally Evil

In Hallie’s second year at a boarding school for witches, she hones her ability to control other people—but can she control her heart? This magical M!X novel is a companion to The XYZs of Being Wicked.

Now that Hallie is in her second year at Dowling Academy, she can finally move to where all of the Crafters live—which means good-bye to her arch-nemesis roommate Kendall, and hello to her best friend, Ivy. But not all change is so welcome: her newfound powers require more of her attention, and even though she wants nothing to with the black magic that allows her to control the thoughts and actions of others, she’s not sure how much choice she really has.

Hallie finds a very cute distraction from her moral dilemma: Cody Rae, a fellow Dowling student who is like royalty at the school, and comes from a lineage of very powerful witches. Even though she hears he is planning to ask her to the biggest social event of the year—the Summer Solstice Dance—Hallie has her doubts about Cody. But soon she will discover they have more in common than she ever imagined…


"I loved The XYZs of Being Wicked, so I couldn't wait to read Accidentally Evil. It has all of the excitement and suspense of the first book, allowing us to root for Hallie once again. A touch of romance, friendship themes, and best of all--MAGIC! I hope there will be more books in this series. I can't wait to see what happens next!" Stephanie Faris
