11-year-old Effie lost her mom. Lost her home. And now she has to live with two strange aunts who she's never met before. Her first day of school goes well, and that helps her feel like she might find a new normal in Brooklyn. But life takes a strange twist for Effie as she learns more about her family and herself. It turns out that her aunt Selimene and her partner Carlota are both real-life witches — something Effie discovers when her favorite singer, Tily Shoo, arrives at their door asking for magical help!
Now Effie can't help but wonder: could she be a witch too? With new friends who will do whatever they can to be there for her, a cursed pop-star, and her new magically-inclined family — Effie's life is about to get interesting. This delightful graphic novel combines real-world challenges with magical adventure that celebrates found family and the power of helping others.
"Magic or no magic, Effie learns there’s power in finding one’s true self and that the path to happiness comes from serving others. The full-color illustrations mix warm earth tones and enticing pastels to create a realistic, comforting world. Clever embellishments, such as floor plans detailing the nooks and crannies of Selimene and Carlota’s house, expand the setting and encourage readers to linger." — Kirkus Reviews
