Fight like a magical girl in this paperback original contemporary fantasy in which a Harajuku fashionista battles mutants-and social anxiety-by teaming up with an elite group of outcasts. Perfect for those obsessed with the technicolor worlds of Sailor Moon, The Umbrella Academy, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Book One of the Magic Mutants Trilogy.

Holly Roads uses Harajuku fashion to distract herself from tragedy. Her magical girl aesthetic makes her feel beautiful-and it keeps the world at arm's length. She's an island of one, until advice from an amateur psychic expands her universe. A midnight detour ends with her vs. exploding mutants in the heart of San Francisco.

Brush with destiny? Check. Waking up with blue blood, emotions gone haywire, and terrifying strength that starts ripping her wardrobe to shreds? Totally not cute. Hunting monsters with a hot new partner and his unlikely family of mad scientists?

Way more than she bargained for.

Review quote

"Like a neon uppercut to the jaw, Magic Mutant Nightmare Girl is a breathless explosion of pastel punk. It takes superhero tropes and makes them more real...I devoured it like radioactive candy, and I can feel the changes coming...just in time for the sequel." - SJ Whitby, author of the Cute Mutants series

"With everything happening in the world right now, sometimes you just want to read something FUN, and that's what this is: fun. As sweet as cotton candy and as warm as your favorite scarf with a heart that sneaks up on you with a hug and characters you'd want to befriend. I cannot wait to buy this for all my magical girl loving friends!" - Alice Scott, Barnes and Noble Bookseller

"Don't let this cover fool you as it did me, this book is much more than just a girl who likes cute things. This book took me into a time in which the pandemic didn't exist, and I got to enjoy my favorite activities through immersion into Holly's world. I was given a side character that I hate to love and would defend to the end, probably to my detriment." - Dai Guerra of @QuirkyBibliophile - Latinx Bookstagrammer

"Take some glitter and petticoats, a thrilling storyline and loveable characters, stir gently and you get Magic Mutant Nightmare Girl! This novel perfectly blends a dark concept with a pastel colored protagonist and provides the perfect read for a rainy day (or two)!" - Rain of @stillreadingat4am - Queer Bookstagrammer
