Fantasy. Young Adult Fiction. LGBTQIA+ (Fiction.) HTML:"As tender and intimate as it is ferocious and volatile, Scapegracers deserves to be this generation's go-to grimoire. May it launch a thousand covens of angry, loving, brilliant girls." ??Amal El-Mohtar in The New York Times Book Review Holiday Books Guide
The Craft for Gen Z: The Scapegracers is an award-nominated, indie bestseller about witchcraft and friendship among a hell-raising coven of teen girls, told in an unapologetically fierce, inclusive, and vibrant voice.

Skulking near the bottom of West High's social pyramid, Sideways Pike lurks under the bleachers doing magic tricks for bottles of Coke. As a witch, lesbian, and lifelong outsider, she's had a hard time making friends. But when the three most popular girls pay her forty dollars to cast a spell at their Halloween party, Sideways gets swept into a new clique. The unholy trinity are dangerous angels, sugar-coated rattlesnakes, and now??unbelievably??Sideways' best friends.
Together, the four bond to form a ferocious and powerful coven. They plan parties, cast curses on jerks, and try to find Sideways a girlfriend, all while eluding the fundamentalist witchfinders hell-bent on stealing their magic. But for Sideways, the hardest part is the whole "having friends" thing. Who knew that balancing human interaction with supernatural peril could be so complicated?
Rich with the urgency of feral youth, The Scapegracers is an atmospheric, voice-driven novel of the occult that explores magic, growing up, and the complexities of friendship with all the rage of a teen

If you love the vibes of Jennifer's Body and The Craft, give this book a try.

Sideways is not your average queer outsider who feels drawn to magic. She finds herself invited to a party to try because of rumors circling the school around Sideway's affinity for magic. The night quickly takes a hard turn after Sideways blacks out at the end of the night.

Sideways finds herself trying to piece together the night with the high school's "mean girl" trio that have attached themselves to her. The way the girls interact in almost a fluid state of matter felt so true to the lines that rarely exist and the confusion that can come with that type of connection.

This story took me a few chapters to get hooked into but I am very much looking forward to what happens next. The humor was very much my style and I'm hoping to see more of Sideway's parents in the next books! ( )

Sideways is at a party and “plays” a little bit with magic. Three other girls from school are willing, and they recruit one more from a neighbouring school. But it’s dangerous. Sideways is not sure what happened when she wakes up the next morning. One of the girls is missing, and they find her at the bottom of an empty pool with three dead deer arranged closeby. Despite the danger and not knowing exactly what happened or how, the girls love the attention they get out of it and want to do more with magic.

I mostly liked this, though none of the characters was terribly likable (except Sideways’ two dads). It is quite graphic at times, as well (this is just an fyi… graphic doesn’t usually bother me, and it didn’t this time). Also a lot of profanity, which I disliked more than the graphic-ness. And it doesn’t quite finish, so not sure how long the series is (or will be) or if there is just one sequel or if it’s a trilogy, but I’ll read the next one. ( )

I loved this book with all my heart. It made me sweaty and giddy and it made me laugh. It made me cry and scream out in frustration. It was weird and unpredictable in the best ways, it was an experience. Sideways, Yates, Jing and Daisy were nothing but a hurricane, strange and mysterious and an aesthetic for themselves. They were interesting, they had chemistry, the fit into each other while staying unique and true for themselves.

The setting was beautifully described, Sideways room is a work of art and there was a certain, graceful spookiness without being cheesy. The writing style is nothing but beautiful, poetic and entrancing, every word pulling you further in.

I loved Mr. Scratch, I loved his history, the way he spoke about his girls, the way he was revealed, starting off as this slightly foreshadowing, creepy presence to the sweet and feeling book devil he is.

The storyline is interesting and working out, every character build up perfectly. The girls are everything I always wished people could make the teenage girl protagonist like. Soft and terrifying, mean and pretty and fierce and loving at the same time, willing to do everything for each other. All those sometimes contradicting traits, that other stories pull up as the entire personality, but here are coexisting, creating a character that simply IS. Alive and real, growing closer and closer. And of course, the representation is wonderful.

I loved this book to pieces and there are a million more things I could say, but I won't. Instead I will just recommend to read it to everyone who is ready for a little magic and wish you a wonderful day ( )

Honestly, the first half of the book was a little hard to get through. Clarke's prose is often a bit violent and visceral, which made it uncomfortable to read sometimes. I also wasn't fully sure what was going on, since some things happened very quickly (the friendship developing between the four) and other things took a while.

Once I got to the second half, it was a much easier and more enjoyable read. I'm interested in following the rest of the story. I'm especially interested in why Maurice doesn't trust Mr. Scratch.

I had expected this book to be a bit more Mean Girls/Heather's than it is, and I'm glad. I like that the girls don't tear others down just for the heck of it. ( )
