From Molly Knox Ostertag, writer-illustrator of the New
York Times and ABA Indie bestselling The Witch Boy
trilogy and The Girl from the Sea, comes a darkly
beautiful graphic novel about identity, family, love, loss and magic.

Everyone has secrets. Mags’s has teeth.

Magdalena Herrera is about to graduate high school, but she already
feels like an adult with serious responsibilities: caring for
her ailing grandmother; working a part-time job; clandestine makeouts
with a girl who has a boyfriend. And then there’s her secret,
which pulls her into the basement each night, drains her of
energy, and leaves her bleeding. A secret that could hurt and even
kill if it ever got out – like it did once before.

So Mags keeps her head down, isolated in her small desert community.
That is, until her childhood friend Nessa comes back to town,
bringing vivid memories of the past, an intoxicating glimpse
of the future, and a secret of her own. Mags won’t get attached,
of course. She’s always been strong enough to survive without
anyone’s help.

But when the darkness starts to close in on them both, Mags will
have to drag her secret into the daylight, and choose between
risking everything… or having nothing left to lose.

A hauntingly beautiful tale of identity, family, love, loss and

Perfect for fans of the ABA Indie The Witch Boy trilology
and The Girl From the Sea
