For mousy seventeen-year-old Heather, starting her first job is very daunting – especially since the bank she’s joined is no ordinary workplace. Soon Heather finds herself in the midst of a coven of modern-day witches. But are they responsible for her mysterious blackouts? And what on earth is happening to her computer?
‘Witch Bank is as much a wittily observed social comedy about office politics and the details of modern working lives as it is anything more fanciful. It reads as though John Updike’s The Witches of Eastwick had been rewritten by someone like Anita Brookner . . . Penguin has classified [it] as young adult fiction, which, it seems to me, underestimates the potential appeal of this amusing, sophisticated and quirkily imaginative novel.’
‘Tightly structured and laced with wry asides, this is a novel
that many teenagers will enjoy, not least for its subtle message about self-belief.’
Australian Book Review
‘A very enjoyable and humorous story about a young girl’s first step into the so-called real world.’
