The Recital: Book Bio

100+ Words

Everything changed after the first day of seventh grade. For Edith Solstice, it wasn't her height. It wasn't getting her first kiss. It wasn't harder classes, either, except for Pre-Algebra. 

 

The change was a magical one. Unfortunately.

 

Edith didn't know magic was possible, and that's what nearly ended Julie Cherry's life. She didn't mean to. Edith shouldn't have thrown that first punch. Now, Julie isn't okay. In fact, she may never be the same. And Edith's chance at contrition comes at a price she might not be able to pay.

 

The Recital enchants with elements of whimsical fantasy and young romance while coping with divorce, bullying, and the awkward, inevitable dawn of adolescence.
