  • Description
  • Details

Wyrd is a light-hearted look at the often tumultuous relationship issues that girls in particular seem to face at end of primary school age, and touches on the situation that many children find themselves a part of, with 'merged' families becoming more normal. However, the solution to Emma's problem (finding out that she has magic on her side) is not a solution that could easily be emulated (at least, I don't think so...).

Emma has a very different outlook to Pip's, and the pair just cannot seem to get along. This shouldn't be a problem, and it wouldn't be a problem–if it weren't for the fact that Emma's Dad is getting married to Pip's Mum! Soon to be sisters, they find themselves increasingly flung together, but it is not a very happy experience... Pip is determined to make Emma's life miserable.

For Dad's sake, Emma tries to keep the peace, but it is a very difficult task. That is, until a book of spells and wishes finds its way into the household, and she accidentally becomes a witch in a secret ceremony intended to impart magical powers to Pip and her friends. Emma is horrified. She never wanted to be a witch, and there seem to be a lot of difficult responsibilities attached to the job. Pip isn't too pleased either–it was meant to be her.

Pip and Emma find themselves working together to reverse the effects of the spell, but nothing they can come up with offers a solution to their problem. It's starting to look as though Emma is going to be stuck like this forever. Horrible! But now Emma has an advantage over Pip, and maybe it would be fun to put it to good use...
