Lucy Scarborough is seventeen when she discovers that the women of her family have been cursed through the generations, forced to attempt three seemingly impossible tasks or to fall into madness upon their child's birth. How can Lucy succeed when all of her ancestors have tried and failed? But Lucy is the first girl who won't be alone as she tackles the list. She has her fiercely protective foster parents beside her. And she has Zach, whose strength amazes her more each day. Do they have enough love and resolve to overcome an age-old evil?- From Barnes and Noble.
This book is exactly the type of book I love. It has suspense, true love, and a curse. Lucy is a strong willed teen who has a great and supportive foster family. I love any heroine who will were Converse to prom. The only snag in her life is a birthmother Miranda who is an eccentric bag lady. Lucy secretly wishes Miranda would just disappear forever so she could have a “normal” life. When everything changes for Lucy after a prom night from hell she must turn to all members of her unconventional family.
I really enjoyed the all the relationships in this book. They were very believable and I felt connected instantly to all. I pulled for Zach from the first time he defied the evil forces aligning against Lucy. I felt for her foster mother and her birthmother. It seemed like I was under a trace when I was reading. I did not want it to end. I am looking forward to reading more of Ms. Werlin’s books.
