'Pretty Witchling'

by Brent Smith, Anais Rozencwajg

My name is Rada, Radmilla to my grandmother.

I'm 11 and I'm tired of not being taken seriously.

This summer, I'm staying with grandma for the first time. Nobody messes with her, and the only reason she left the old country was to get away from folks who told tales about her. She runs a resort called "Baba's Last Resort", for people like us who just want to be themselves.

She's teaching me - kind of the family business. I work really hard at it, but it doesn't always turn out like I pictured.
