It’s been eight years since the wicked witch held Hansel Lucas Jaeger and his sister captive; they barely escaped with their lives. Now a senior in high school, Lucas finally feels normal.
But everything changes the day he sees his awkward, loner sister, Melrose, hanging out with one of the popular girls at Tangleforest High. At first, he’s just confused, but when he sees the tarot cards between them, he’s reminded of the curse the witch cast on Melrose. Lucas warns her to stay away from anything, or anyone, that might trigger the spell. But she thinks he’s being paranoid and refuses to listen.
Lucas desperately needs Melrose to see the danger he senses before it’s too late – even if that means looking crazy in front of the entire school. But who should he trust? And how does he rescue someone who doesn’t want to be saved?
