Noreena's magic will consume her if she allows it to be set free. She's sure of it. When her mother decrees that Nora's powers will be unbound after graduation, Nora knows she's running out of time.
Obsessed with finding a way to remove the 'her' from 'her magic', Nora is oblivious to what's brewing around her. By the time tragedy strikes, it's too late.
Thrust into a new world where magic dictates identity, Nora struggles to cling to the normalcy she's always craved. She doesn't want to show anyone why she loathes her powers--why her powers scare her--and why, if they were smart, they would leave her alone.
But these people aren't smart.
They are even less ready for the truth that her mother had tried to hide for so long: she is the most powerful of them all.
