Joniece Abbott-Pratt and Zeno Robinson capture the voices of Cristina and Clement Trudeau, Black teenage twins who are growing up in a New Orleans family that practices magic. A year after their father's death, their mother is sick, and they fear she'll succumb to her mysterious illness. Then they discover she's actually cursed--and they're targets, too. As Cris and Clem set out to identify who is after their family, they discover connections to their grandmother's lynching 30 years earlier. Robinson and Abbott-Pratt alternate the first-person chapters with skill, pulling out every emotion in the story's closely held secrets, romance, and magic. Bahni Turpin and Torian Brackett narrate third-person perspectives that give insights into additional characters, including determined antagonists and a terrifying god.
