Maisie Cothay was born cursed. Each living thing she touches dies or comes back to life. She lives in seclusion from the world until one day, when she is 16, and her father goes missing. As a Pushing Daisies fan, I was pulled in to the plot immediately and then couldn’t stop giggling with joy with the occasional reference. Beautiful, lyric writing is matched with an amazing plot filled with twists and turns that kept me guessing. Magic blends beautifully into a very real world, creating a modern day fairy tale. I have found a reason to talk about this book everyday since I finished it. I want to write a lot about this book so you will believe me and pick it up but I don’t want to ruin anything! So just take my word for it and read this!
