What if your town had a secret everyone knew except you?
What if you were the secret?
“Child Female Lost. Whenever I hear my name, it feels like I’m shrinking. It’s not a name, it’s a description. It wasn’t chosen in love and anticipation. It was scribbled on an intake form at the emergency room where the cops dropped me off. Two years old. No one ever claimed me, and no one cared enough to change that first careless scrawl. It should have said Child Unwanted.”
Now a foster care veteran of seventeen, Child’s free ride with the state ends on her next birthday…in just four days. Finding a place to live on her budget will take a little fast thinking and a lot of desperation. Luckily for her, there is a haunted, carriage house apartment with a price tag she can’t refuse and a reputation that makes her the only applicant.
Evil spirits, protection circles, witchcraft and hoodoo, Child is convinced all that woo woo stuff is for flakes and weirdos, but one night in her new apartment sends her running for answers.
Drawn to the curious shop of Crooked Crossroads, owned by two, eccentric, witch sisters, she finds a gathering place for people of all magical paths. Inside it’s walls, there is something even more terrifying than black magic and dead people, a community that accepts her as she is. And all she has to do is trust…
Hidden deep in the bayou, the small moss-draped town of LaPierre is full of secrets and deception. Here, enemies lurk beneath the faces of new friends and the home Child has always wanted may turn out to be a trap she never leaves.
