The Root of Magic by Kathleen Benner Duble
Delacorte Press and Edelweiss allowed me to rad this book for review (thank you). It will be published June 11th.
Luckily, a husband and wife team in a tow truck show up and help them evacuate the car. It was just in time, too. The car fell in the river as soon as they backed away. They take them to a gated community, where they are welcomed at the bed and breakfast. It's like she knew they were coming. She's already set a roll-away bed for Wisp in the same room mom and Willow will be sleeping in.
As time goes on, more coincidences happen until Willow begins to believe something else is going on. When she asks questions, she's told to ask her mom.
When she finds out where the magic comes from, she's amazed. She even tries it once but decides she doesn't want to live that way. Neither does Wisp. But can they get away? And where will they go?
I enjoyed this read. There was just enough magic to make it mysterious and deciding to stay or leave was heartrending. I'll remember this book.
