Jessie Jones has just discovered she’s a witch. Too bad there isn’t a hex to make slimy Callum Henderson and his friends disappear … yet.
8th July can only mean one thing – brand new bookish magic from Julia Tuffs in the form of Hexed! A new, fiesty debut novel described by Kate Weston as ‘pure fierce magical genius’, we’re celebrating with this totally delicious Hexed-inspired mocktail. Why not put your potion making skills to the test and try it out?
- 4 Blackberries
- 1 Grapefruit
- 1 tsp of Maple Syrup
- Soda Water
Step One: Cut the grapefruit and squeeze the juice from one half into a bowl.
Step Two: Use a sieve to separate the grapefruit juice from the pulp.
Step Three: Muddle the blackberries in a glass.
Step Four: Add the ice, grapefruit juice and maple syrup into the glass.
Step Five: Top up with soda water and add a slice of grapefruit to complete (plus any witchy decorations you have)!

New girl, new school, new life on stupid island – thanks Mum. All Jessie Jones wants is to keep her head down, avoid school douchebag Callum Henderson, and coast – middle-of-the-road-like. But when strange powers start to manifest during crippling period pains, flying under the radar seems highly unlikely.
Can Jessie embrace her new-found witchiness, control her erratic powers and work out a way to bring down Callum and his cult of toxic masculinity?
Don’t get mad, get powers.
