About the Author

Cassie Beasley is from rural Georgia, where, when she's not writing, she helps out on the family pecan farm. She earned her MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults at the Vermont College of Fine Arts. Her first book, Circus Mirandus, was a New York Times bestseller, a New York Times notable book, and a Nerdie Book Club Award winner.

Reviews

* "Reminiscent of Ingrid Law's Savvy books, Beasley's sophomore novel is a spirited yarn that shines through rich characters, evocative writing, and enchanted premise."--Booklist, starred review

* "A tender message about sacrifice-for loved ones and the greater good-underlies this magical story of fate and family."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "An original, highly engaging story about the power of friendship, family curses, and blessings-and what it means to be a hero."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "The lush setting and lustrous portrayal of the characters will captivate even the most reluctant reader. Middle graders will delight in the richly drawn world and history that Beasley creates."--School Library Journal, starred review

* "In a mix of tall tale, magic realism, comic midgrade mayhem, and sweetness--a mix reminiscent of Sachar's Holes--Beasley creates a distinctive, energetic world in which kindness is a muscular value and quirkiness is organic to the setting."--The Horn Book, starred review
