Summary
Snap's town has a witch.And when Snap's dog goes missing, the first place she looks is the witch's house. She finds her dog there, recovering from being hit by a car, in the care of a woman named Jacks. She is a crocks-wearing, internet-savvy older woman whos collects roadkill, put their spirits to rest, and cleans and sells their articulated skeletons online. They make a deal: If Jacks teaches Snap how to take care of a crate of orphaned baby opossums that Snap rescued, Snap will assist Jacks with her work. But as Snap starts to gain an appreciation for what Jacks does and their friendship deepens . . . she realizes that Jacks may in fact have real magic and that she also may have a connection with Snap's family's past.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "There's something creepy about Jacks, the odd, gangly, one-eyed old white woman living in Snapdragon's town, but Snap's not afraid, especially after Jacks shows her how to take care of a litter of orphaned possums and what she's up to early in the morning with a wheelbarrow full of roadkill (it involves a very lucrative internet business for skeleton enthusiasts). Beyond their shared obsession with animals, though, Snap and Jacks have a much deeper connection based on family secrets, ghosts, and a touch of magic. The slow reveal of those connections makes up the dense but heartening plot of Leyh's graphic novel, which is bolstered by some affirming, character-revealing side-plots, such as Snap's growing friendship with transgender, dark-skinned Lulu; her fantastic relationship with her tough yet deeply compassionate Black mother; and her impatience to become more powerful herself. Leyh's dynamic artwork, full of active motion, shifting perspectives, and varying panel shapes and sizes, matches the complexity of the plot, and her figure designs, which show a wide variety of gender presentations, body shapes, skin tones, and hair types, nicely complement her characters' personalities. Beyond the magic, creepy undertones, and captivating artwork, themes of acceptance, particularly regarding gender and sexuality, permeate the story and are handled in a refreshing, matter-of-fact manner. This endearingly offbeat story emphasizes found community, the importance of love and friendship, and a fierce commitment to individuality--all powerful themes for middle-grade readers."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "When middle schooler Snapdragon's dog goes missing, Snapdragon dares to enter the house of a reputed witch and finds the hound recuperating from an accident. The next day, encountering a dead opossum mother and her living babies, Snapdragon takes them back to the house for help. The purported witch, an older woman named Jacks who raced motorcycles in her youth, makes a deal with Snapdragon--Jacks will help Snapdragon care for the possums if Snapdragon helps Jacks with her work harvesting road kill, then cleaning and selling the articulated skeletons online. As the self-possessed girl develops an interest in vertebrate anatomy, she spends time in her trailer park home evolving a meaningful friendship with trans neighbor Lu, honing an interest in frightening tales, and navigating the fallout of her hardworking single mother's most recent relationship. She also discovers that Jacks is deeply connected to her own family--and just might be an actual witch. In bright, dynamic art, Leyh packs Snapdragon's world with an array of wonderful characters, full of quirks and contradictions, who represent a variety of ethnicities, sexualities, and gender expressions. Full of magic and humor, this intersectional, layered tale offers joyful and affirming depictions of social outsiders and comfortably complicated families. Ages 10--14. (Feb.)■"
