I realize I picked most of the graphic novels on the Hub Challenge reading list, and I haven’t regretted that choice! Mooncakes is a cute story about Nova finding her way as a witch in a hidden magical world. She lives with her two magical grandmothers who run a shop in town as well as protect magical creatures in the forest behind their house. Nova stumbles upon a fight between two creatures and realizes one is actually her old friend Tam in wolf form, struggling against a demon. Tam, who uses the pronouns they, and Nova have a romantic past (and present!) and bring out the best in each other mentally and magically. Tam helps Nova to see her hearing aids as an asset, and assures her that there is no rush to leave home to apply for magical apprenticeships elsewhere. The demon previously mentioned comes back to disrupt their lives and forces and all out magical war between good and evil. With equal parts love and warfare, this would be a sweet story for 6th grade and up.
