Curses and Smoke: a novel by Vicky Alvear Shecter. 336 p. Scholastic Inc., May 27, 2014.
Publisher synopsis: When your world blows apart, what will you hold onto?
I was just tickled by Ms. Shecter's biography of Cleopatra, Cleopatra Rules!, a few years back and tickled again by Cleopatra's Moon. She also has a fun new series that started with Anubis Speaks, called Secrets of the Ancient Gods with Boyds Mills Press.
What are you waiting on?
