I Am Magical - Book cover"The revolution will be magical."

There’s a city. It’s like most other cities. Buildings. People. Monsters who can destroy sidewalks by vomiting acid onto the ground, and an elite group of black, queer, magical girls who work to put those monsters in their place.

And soon, others would join them, and each one would be magical in their own way… give or take a few bumps on the acid covered ground.

Before she realized it she was... more
