So You Want to be a Wizard

In the beginning of the first book of the Young Wizards series, Nita is being attacked by some bullies from her school. She finds cover in the library, and with the librarian's help, she's able to stay hidden in the children's section downstairs. While Nita is admiring all of the books she read when she was younger and running her hand along the books, one catches her finger. She pulls out this book and sees that it's one she doesn't recognize. So she begins to read the book, titled So You Want to be a Wizard. When she emerges from the library, this new book checked out, and heads home, she gets beat up by the bullies and finds her pen missing afterwards. Later in the night, Nita takes the oath in the front of the book and then goes to sleep.

The next morning, Nita quickly does all her chores then heads out and begins to read the book, trying to memorize everything. Eventually, the trees begin speaking to her, and she learn of another wizard across the highway. Upon her arrival at the forest where the trees had told her he'd be, there was a boy whom she finds out is named Kit.
