Half Badby Sally Green Series: Half-Life Trilogy #1
Published by Penguin on 2014-03-04
Genres: Boys & Men, Family, Fantasy & Magic, Fiction, Young Adult
In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White witches, who are good; Black witches, who are evil; and sixteen-year-old Nathan, who is both. Nathan’s father is the world’s most powerful and cruel Black witch, and his mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides.
Trapped in a cage, beaten and handcuffed, Nathan must escape before his seventeenth birthday, at which point he will receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch—or else he will die.
But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is tracked, when there is no one safe to trust—not even family, not even the girl he loves?
In the tradition of Patrick Ness and Markus Zusak, Half Bad is a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive, a story that will grab hold of you and not let go until the very last page.
The Sequel – HALF WILD

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sally Green lives in north-west England. She has had various jobs and even a profession, but in 2010 she discovered a love of writing and now just can’t stop.

Praise about the Series:
When Half Bad released in the US, the critical response was resounding. TIME Magazine namedHalf Bad one of the “Best Books of 2014 So Far,”calling it “highly entertaining and dangerously addictive”. USA Today called it “refreshing” while The Boston Globe declared it “much more than a book about witches…a ruminative exploration of the nature of evil.”
US Weekly called Half Bad “gripping,” and io9 raved“Have you ever had the thing where you’re so absorbed in reading a book that you try to keep reading it while walking around on the street, only to come close to being hit by a bus?”
Critical acclaim was not only what made this incredible novel stand out, Half Bad smashed two Guinness World Records prior to release (most translated book by a debut author and most translated children’s book pre-publication), and the global success has only continued to grow with rights being sold into 50 foreign language territories and film rights sold to FOX, with Karen Rosenfelt (Twilight, Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters, The Book Thief) producing.
