A twofold tale of grief and hope, loss and love, told as only Alice Hoffman can

When her family is lost in a terrible disaster, fifteen-year-old Green is haunted by loss and the past. Struggling to survive in a place where nothing seems to grow and ashes are everywhere, Green retreats into the ruined realm of her garden. But in destroying her feelings, she also begins to destroy herself. It is only through a series of mysterious encounters that Green relearns the lessons of love and begins to heal as she tells her own story.

As she heals, Green lives every day with feelings of loss. Her family is gone, the boy she loves is missing, and the world she once knew has been transformed by tragedy. In order to rediscover the truth about love, hope, and magic, she must venture away from her home, collecting the stories of a group of women who have been branded witches for their mysterious powers. Only through their stories will Green find her own heart's desire.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Green Witch*"Haunting, philosophical, and filled with poetic imagery this book will leave an indelible mark." - Publishers Weekly, starred review"Hoffman writes in lyrical, stripped-down poetry that distills both magic and elemental experience into essential, unforgettable words." - Booklist"This small yet strongly affecting volume offers profound thoughts on life, love, and loss." - Voice of Youth AdvocatesPraise for Green Angel*"Achingly lovely... In lean, hypnotic prose, Hoffman constructs a post apocalyptic fairy tale leavened with hope." - Publishers Weekly, starred review*"Beautifully written...this is both a survival story and an homage to the need to cherish life's every moment." - School Library Journal, starred review"Spare, haunting." - Kirkus Reviews
