Middle Grade Fantasy
Date Published: February 20th, 2016
After months of living a normal life, thirteen-year-old Alyssa McCarthy faces magic again. Only this time, though, she is cursed with it, thanks to an old depressed skeleton named Errol. Alyssa’s time with her godfather, Alex, will never be the same again, as she can perform sorcery, but never control it.From letting out enchantments at school to creating outdoor disasters, Alyssa is bound to face consequences. She can only get rid of her powers if she can boost her confidence levels and improve her bravery. But it’s not as easy as it sounds. She must measure those abilities with a special device called a skillometer. Will she be able to get rid of her unwanted wizardry?
The scent of lavender drifted into Alyssa’s nostrils, causing her to inhale. The aroma tickled the inside of her nose. Vapor also touched her face as she lay on top of her bed. She opened her eyes, noticing the lilac-covered mist clouding around her face. Gasping, she bolted up. She turned to her window and saw that it remained shut as it had all day.
Where did this come from? Alyssa thought.
Her stomach knotted as she hopped off her bed. Something like this could not just happen out of nowhere—unless—it was caused by… wizardry. Alyssa raised her eyebrows as an alarm buzzed inside her head. She couldn’t believe it. It was now October—six months since people and creatures doing sorcery had left her life. And that amount of time was only the minimum amount for magic to stay out of her daily routines with everything she’d done. If not, wizardry would have just left her alone forever.
