Lucy has nine months to break an ancient curse in order to save both herself and her unborn daughter.
Lucy 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. But Lucy is the first girl who won’t be alone as she tackles the list. She has her fiercely protective foster parents and her childhood friend Zach beside her. Do they have love and strength enough to overcome an age-old evil?
This was a really good story. I’ve always loved folk tales and to have a story based on the song “Scarborough Fair” was really interesting for me. It was written really well in a way that was believable in modern times, but still having the possibility of evil and fairy curses that many people no longer believe in today. This book was also nominated for the National Book Award. Recommended. – Jessica, Teen Librarian
