Author: Katie Crouch
Release Date: May 3, 2011
Publisher: Poppy
Pages: 368

On Goodreads:

After the death of her free-spirited mother, sixteen-year-old Alex Lee must leave her home in northern California to live with her wealthy grandmother in Savannah, Georgia. By birth, Alex is a rightful, if unwilling, member of the Magnolia League, Savannah's long-standing debutante society. She quickly discovers that the Magnolias have made a pact with a legendary hoodoo family, the Buzzards. The Magnolias enjoy youth, beauty and power. But at what price?

As in her popular adult novels, Crouch's poignant and humorous voice shines in this seductively atmospheric story about girls growing up in a magical Southern city.

I just heard about this book yesterday (Tuesday) and there's something about it that just sparked something in my brain and made me go, 'holy crap, this book looks awesome, I so want it.' Which doesn't happen a lot. Well, it happened when I first read about Mandy Hubbard's Ripple, and all of Lili St. Crow's Strange Angels books, and Andrea Cremer's Nightshade and Wolfsbane. Okay, so it happens a little. ;) It just sounds so weird and interesting.


  1. I do not know how I haven't heard of this yet. It looks absolutely stunning and sounds even better. I'm definitely going to have to add this to my TBR list.
