Her twin brother, a double seven, is gifted with magic, but Eff is the 13th child and bad luck to all.

Wrede has created another world, like our own so it is believable, but just different enough to be magical. Eff's immediate family is supportive, but her aunts, uncles, and cousins all believe her to be cursed and bound to bring bad luck to them all. Eff is a young girl struggling to find her way while others perceptions and expectations seem to hold her back. Harry Potter fans will enjoy her journey that begins in this, the first book of the series.
