What will it take for Phoebe to become a witch? Phoebe has wanted to be a witch since she was four years old, when witches transformed a barren, rundown park in her town into a thriving and beautiful spot with flowerbeds in full bloom and swings for the children. Witches are what keep the world spinning. They are responsible for beauty and magic—and Phoebe wants desperately to join their ranks. But as a clumsy fifth grader, she doubts she ever could. One day, perched in her favorite tree, Phoebe tumbles into the midst of a circle of witches. As luck would have it, her clumsiness might just be what makes all of her dreams come true. But being an apprentice to a group of witches is harder than she imagined. This action-packed story follows Phoebe as she flies—and stumbles—toward becoming a full-fledged witch.
