Description (taken from Sarah Zettel's website):
Callie LeRoux has lived all her life in small town Kansas. She thinks she knows all there is to know about herself and her mother. But with the coming of the biggest dust storm in history, Callie finds out there is much more to her family, her history and the world outside Slow Run than she ever guessed. Secrets and magics plunge Callie into danger with only her own nerve and the hobo boy Jack Holland to help, and Jack has his own secrets that might destroy them both…

There are a couple of reasons why I want to read this book.  Number one:  the cover.  Isn't it a little creepy looking (in a good way)?  Number two:  the Goodreads description compares it to the Gemma Doyle series by Libba Bray.  I loved those books!!  And third, this author has gotten a lot of endorsements from other awesome authors.


  1. Wow, that cover is a little creepy! I never noticed the face in the background until now. I'm looking forward to this one, because it sounds like The Frontier Magic series by Patricia Wrede, minus the disturbing removal of Native Americans, I hope.

  2. The synopsis for this one sounds very good.


  3. Oh. I like the sounds of this book. The cover looks amazing! Awesome choice! Thank you for sharing it!


  4. this one looks good! I haven't heard of it before but i love the cover!

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
