“Backyard Witch” by Ronald Koertge and Christine Heppermann was a book I’ll never forget!

It’s about a girl named Maya who is very excited about her school spelling bee. She has been practicing with her friends, Sadie and Jess for a long time with long words! Finally, the day of the bee comes and Maya is super duper excited, yet there is something that is not so exciting: One of her competitors is Sadie, her friend.

Will Maya win or will her shy friend Sadie win ?

I liked this book because it shows that just because you lose once doesn’t mean that you should give up forever. I recommend this book for boys and girls in the age of 7-16.
