Wednesday Books and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you). It will be published October 13th.
Her mother is attempting to create the Philosopher’s Stone. It can heal, can change base metals into gold, and more. But there is a curse on it. As they get closer to completion, her mother locks the work room and won't let her in. She intends to keep the prize to herself. Not a good decision.
She tells her daughter she has to go, she can't live there anymore. While Theo tried to figure out where she could go, her mother attacks her and tries to kill her. The stone has driven her mother crazy...
She goes to find her boyfriend and finds out he hasn't been true to her. Her dad lets her live with him temporarily. She meets his assistant and likes him.
There's a lot more trauma in the story as she tries to create her own stone. Even when she does, it's not like she thought it would be. Poor Theo, I wonder if she will ever find someone to love?
