About the Author

Kate Scelsa is a novelist, playwright, and part time witch. Her debut novel Fans of the Impossible Life was an Indie Next pick, a Rainbow List Top Ten book, and has been published in ten languages. Her play Everyone's Fine With Virginia Woolf has been produced in New York, Dublin, and was published by Dramatists Play Service. Kate's identity as a witch can be traced back to second grade, when she founded her first coven. These days her witchy activities include reading tarot from the (only slightly) haunted house in upstate New York that she shares with her wife, and writing songs and performing with her band The Witch Ones.

Reviews

"Scelsa explores public opinion and self-perception alongside themes of forgiveness, relational toxicity, and commercialism. Symbolic magic lends an underlying sense of enchantment as Eleanor opens herself up to new ideas and possibilities, and a sweet, gentle central chemistry sells the central romance." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Magic is found through personal growth and accepting love in this enchanting tale." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"In Salem, everyone has secrets, and two teenagers struggle to keep their fledgling relationship alive through Eleanor's past, and Pix's best intentions in this charming, heartrending LGBTQIA+ YA." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"Cleverly arranged as a journey through the Major Arcana of a tarot deck, this is a queer romance [with] a witchy flourish." -- ALA Booklist
