Teen Witch:
Wicca for a New Generation
by Silver Ravenwolf,
Llewellyn, 1998.

Editor’s note: as this is currently a top-seller for the publisher and the only book like it on the market, we’ve included two different reviews of this title.

The cover is inexcusably sleazy, but if you can get past that, Teen Witch is a well-intentioned and informative book packed with helpful material, written in a breezy style that should appeal to a wide range of teen readers.

Silver Ravenwolf bravely addresses popular misconceptions about the Craft and brings clarity and a real sense of ethics and integrity to the subject: her heart is very clearly in the right place.
