This extraordinary collection of fifteen stories celebrates witches using their power and claiming their destinies.
THERE'S NOTHING MORE POWERFUL THAN A WITCH WHO BELIEVES IN HERSELF.
Women accused of witchcraft. Fearsome girls with arcane knowledge. Toil & Trouble features fifteen stories of girls embracing their power, reclaiming their destinies, and using their magic to create, to curse, to cure, to kill...and to live.
A young witch uses social media to connect with her astrology clients--and with a NASA-loving girl as cute as she is skeptical. A priestess of death investigates a ritualized murder. A bruja who cures lovesickness might need the remedy herself when she falls for an altar boy. A theater production is turned upside down by a visiting churel. A water witch uses her magic to survive the soldiers who have invaded her desert oasis. And in the near future, a group of girls accused of witchcraft must find their collective power...and destroy their captors.
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A TEEN WITCH!
