Chapter Summary

This chapter describes the teen Witch culture as a phenomenon is limited due to the difficult task of accounting for the numbers involved in teenage Witchcraft. The booming of these publishing subcategories of both teen and mind body spirit literature from the late 1990s and into the early 2000s is testament to their commercial viability and thus to an audience engaged in constructing an identity as Neo-Pagan Witches in part through the literary texts. The chapter then discusses the construction and significance of these how-to texts and the teen Witch identity they facilitate. It analysis the most popular texts and those describing Witchcraft as a spiritual and religious practice rather than simply describing spells.
