Isabella & Blodwen is the latest book from Rachael Smith, creator of Wired Up Wrong, Stand in your Power, and the critically acclaimed record of the Covid pandemic, Quarantine Comix. The story follows sixteen-year-old Isabella who has been granted early admission to the prestigious University of Oxford. Academically gifted but lacking in social skills, she finds navigating the hallowed halls a trial she can’t study her way out of. Mixing with older students and struggling to find her place, she sets her heart on the coveted summer internship with her hero, Professor MacLeod. While wondering how to get the letter of recommendation she needs to be considered, she accidentally drops an exhibit from a museum she’s visiting in her bag… and Blodwen, the Witch from the Bottle, enters her life!
