"A dark, thoroughly modern fairy tale crackling with wit and magical mayhem." -Leigh Bardugo, New York Times bestselling author of Shadow and Bone

"An enchantingly twisted modern fairy tale, perfect for those who prefer Grimm to Disney. Inventive, darkly magical, and beautifully written, it will stay with me for a long time." - Kendare Blake, New York Times bestselling author of Three Dark Crowns


A powerful and haunting tale for teen fans of urban fantasy, fairy tales, magic, and horror who enjoy books by Leigh Bardugo, Kendare Blake, Catherynne Valente, and V. E. Schwab.

When Vassa''s stepsister sends her out to buy lightbulbs in the middle of the night, she knows it could easily become a suicide mission. Babs Yagg, the owner of the local convenience store, has a policy of beheading shoplifters-and sometimes innocent shoppers as well.

But Vassa has a bit of luck hidden in her pocket, a gift from her dead mother. Erg is a tough-talking wooden doll with sticky fingers, a bottomless stomach, and ferocious cunning. With Erg''s help, Vassa just might be able to break the witch''s curse and free her Brooklyn neighborhood. But Babs won''t be playing fair..
