Eva Evergreen, Semi-Magical Witch by Julie Abe

Eva is desperate to prove her magic and become a witch.  If she fails, they will remove all her magic...

Little Brown Books For Young Readers and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on August 4th.

With her mother fighting for her, she gets a ticket on the boat and must go help a town.  She boards the boat, but after a while of sitting and helping out a man on the boat heal his hand, she falls asleep.  She wakes up at the last stop.  She goes out to find the Mayor and check in.  The Mayor is not happy with her.  She wanted an older, more experienced witch.  But she has to take what she gets.

She thinks she'll have a shop where she can help those who need it.  It's just a lump of empty ground.  Her friend gets her some cargo boxes she can use to set up her wares.  But no one comes.

She goes across the street to buy some sweet goodies.  She finds twin sisters fighting and tries to make them better but the shop reshapes, two stores become one and the two dessert goods mix.  They are horrified but folks pour in and buy their goods.

She knows a storm is coming so she sneaks out and magics the buildings to keep them standing.  But there are so many.

Then she comes up with another idea.  Will she save the town and become a witch, or will she fail and lose her magic?
