AUTHOR'S NOTE + CONTENT WARNINGS

This author's note is particularly close to my heart, because I wrote MMNG despite the incredible odds. I wanted to create a book for misfits, for angry girls in pastel dresses dragging their way through the world with claws and teeth. A book about magic and science and having too many feelings with nowhere to put them. It's my love letter to my #Ownvoices struggle with social anxiety, magical girls, Sam Raimi-style camp and horror, and everyone who's ever felt li

I devoured this book in a couple of days and the characters have been in my heart ever since. This is the magical girl story I’ve always wanted, and one of the best things I’ve read in a long time.
If you like sass and banter, found family, and a searingly honest look at grief and coping. Laugh out loud funny, squee-inducingly shippable, and everything I want in a book. I can’t wait to read it again.

I had so much fun reading this Alice-in-Wonderland meets Marvel story. I loved the deeper side that examined themes of family, grief, and toxic masculinity, and the lighter side that showed us so much gorgeous fashion and heart-stopping action, and the way cool mutants roaming the streets of San Francisco. This was honestly very good, and I cannot wait to read more!

This sounds absolutely fantastic! It checks literally all my boxes (Japanese inspiration, lots of diversity, superheroes...), and just...is it 2020 yet?

Erin Grammar writes about horrible things happening to good people—while looking as cute as humanly possible. When she isn’t working on her latest novel, she likes to hunt for gemstones and Hello Kitty collectibles, spend time with her family (including two real and very demanding cats), craft, watch horror movies, and style wigs big enough to hold tons of secrets.
