Description

Serafina's life takes an amazing turn when she is summoned to her great-aunt's cottage to become the new Baba Yaga! But leaving behind her home, her family, and the boy she loves isn't easy. As Serafina grows into her magical new role, she discovers that strangers can ask her one question and she must answer truthfully. It's like a glimpse into a crystal ball . . . but telling the future doesn't always mean knowing the right answers.

E.D. Baker's talent for re-imagining classic fairy tales shines brighter than ever in this adventure about watching what you wish for!
