For fans of Rebecca Stead and Corey Ann Haydu comes critically acclaimed author Caela Carter’s timely story about a tween girl coming to terms with her changing body and the recent attention she’s been getting from boys.
Lydia hasn’t been comfortable in her own skin since the end of sixth grade, when the boys at her school started commenting on the way she looks in her uniform. Lydia’s friends and cousin, Emma, think she should be flattered but the comments make Lydia feel uncomfortable and confused. To deal with it all, Lydia tries to be invisible by layering her clothes even in the summer and reading horror novels to escape her real-life fears.Then her mom surprises her by buying a dilapidated house in their neighborhood. She’s certain it holds the magic she needs to protect herself, especially when she discovers a book of spells. But when the magic Lydia deeply believes in eventually loses its power to keep her safe, she isn’t sure what else to do . . . except try to figure out how to be a girl in a complex, messy world.
