Something stopped Nita's hand as it ran along the bookshelf. She looked and found that one of the books had a loose thread at the top of its spine. It was one of those So You Want to Be a . . . books, a series on careers. So You Want to Be a Pilot, and a Scientist . . . a Writer. But this one said, So You Want to Be a Wizard.
I don't belive this, Nina thought. She shut the book and stood there holding it in her hand, confused, amazed, suspicious—and delighted. If it was a joke, it was a great one. If it wasn't . . . ?
As two young wizards embark on a mission to preserve the universe they encounter an eerie version of Manhattan. Ages 10-up.

I want to be a wizard!
Fantastic first installment of a really great book series. Diane Duane is an excellent storyteller, I was hooked right from beginning!
It is amazing
I love this book so far, I think the older book are more creative then they are now
A great young adult book that's fun for adults!
So You Want to Be a Wizard is a good young adult fantasy. It embraces a child's instant belief that if a book says you can be a wizard, then it's a real possibility. It's a fun romp through growing past personal fears to embrace bravery and help change the world, both in large and small ways.
The writing style is easy to read, geared toward a younger audience, but it's smart and witty enough to engage readers of all age levels. The plot is smooth and well paced. An all around good read.
