Recommended Read

A gorgeous, bewitching story of two outcast girls whose lives are twisted by an ancient prophecy. Who will be queen of the witches? Poppy Hooper and Ember Hawkweed are bound by their unlikely friendship and the boy they both love. 

On Callie's seventeenth birthday, she receives her vision of the future–a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they're meant to be. But Callie's vision shows her murdering her younger sister, and she is arrested and sent to a prison for those destined to break the law. Callie escapes and, on the run from the government and from her future, sets in motion a chain of events she hopes will change her fate and protect her sister.

Seventeen-year-old Caitlin Singleberry is a proper Christian teenager and member of a family singing group, but today she has been given a truly impossible assignment–keep her cousin Heller Harrigan, Hollywood wild child, out of trouble for the last weekend before her first big movie debuts.
