After the death of her grandmother Mamo, the young witch Orla O’Reilly returns to her small hometown. There Orla is faced with more challenges than she expected. In order to quiet the spirit of her grandmother, Orla must figure out what happened to Mamo’s mislaid bones. Sas Milledge’s debut novel is something I’ve been looking forward to for years, ever since this graphic novel was in a very early stage and being uploaded onto Tumblr!— Andrea C.
Mamo weaves together magic, nature, grief, romance, adventure, and complex family relationships all in one beautiful story. It follows Orla, a witch who must return home after her grandmother passes, and Jo, who quickly bond with Orla after enlisting her help. This book captures all the magic of a Studio Ghibli film with its own unique style. I immediately fell in love with it!— Alana
