The Jacob Miracle

by Katherine Sparrow

Everybody underestimated Jacob Apple. He’d launched spells from the chaos camp for the last three years, and though he was by far the strongest witch in the world, so what?

He’d made Germany turn pink, and mice talked now. Every year on April tenth people in Chicago danced all day long. His spells had strength, but no substance. Everyone said Jacob didn’t know his why. Without a why, a witch is just a prankster.

About the Author

Katherine Sparrow

Katherine Sparrow writes middle-grade, young adult, and adult fiction for humans of all ages. She understands that all stories are sneaky. Sometimes they take you somewhere fun and exciting. Other times they change minds and save lives. Her fiction tries really hard to do both. She was nominated for a Nebula Award, attended the Clarion West Writers Workshop, and organizes workshops for writers at all parts of their journey.

When not writing, she spends her time chasing two young children around, enjoying Seattle’s ample and lovely gloom, and planting things in a garden that mostly molds.
