The Grace of Wild Things

Grace has never been good at anything except magic — not that anyone believes her. While other children are adopted from the orphanage, nobody wants Grace. So she decides to make a home for herself by running away and offering herself as an apprentice to the witch in the nearby woods. After all, who better to teach Grace to use her magic? Surely the witch can’t be that bad.

But the witch is that bad — she steals souls for spells and gobbles up hearts. So Grace offers a deal: If she can learn all 100½ spells in the witch’s grimoire, the witch will make Grace her apprentice. But if Grace fails, the witch can take her magic. The witch agrees, and soon an unexpected bond develops between them.

But the spells are much harder than Grace expected, and when a monster from the witch’s past threatens the home Grace has built, she may have to sacrifice more than her magic to save it. From the acclaimed author of The Language of Ghosts and The School Between Winter and Fairyland, this is an inventive and fantastical reimagining of Anne of Green Gables that explores found family, loss, and the power of a girl's imagination.

Description

"Richly imagined and terribly funny in its interactions between Grace and the witch, the narrative’s essence honors the plots points and characters of L.M. Montgomery’s iconic story. Grace is voluble, imaginative, and a lover of poetry and all things in the natural world. Her endearing character — just as charming as the original Anne (no mean feat) — is by turns funny, wise, determined, and poignant." — Kirkus Reviews
