Twelve-year-old Marigold and her older sisters are the youngest witches in a long line of aromages (those who create charms with scents from plants). Unfortunately, as with most things in life creating charms is a complicated business. Often a vex or counter curse is created as well, because fate demands a price.
Set in the present, this tale is all about family, friends, community, and the inevitable changes that occur. Marigold navigates middle school while her family is falling apart. A vex caused by a long-ago ancestor is about to take its toll. Marigold will have to trust herself to break the curse, or she could lose her sisters. She won’t be able to do it alone.
