Description

“What Curiosity Kills…cracks open the world of Upper East Side prep-schoolers and literally turns it wild, bringing together the best parts of Gossip Girl, Twilight, and Buffy The Vampire Slayer… funny, fierce, and full of surprises.” —Hannah Tinti, ALA Alex Award-winning auth or of The Good Thief Nobody can know your secret. Nobody can know your power. But if nobody knows who you are to begin with…what’s stopping you? I whisper, “What’s so special about me all of a sudden?” Nick says, “The Turning.” Mary feels different, but can’t explain why. The fainting, the strange cravings…and worse, the things she’s noticed about her body. Mary doesn’t know where to turn. If she tells her parents or her sister, she’ll risk losing everything. She has no other family, no way of knowing if what she’s going through is normal. Everyone she’s ever known and loved could reject her… “Helen Ellis is the kind of writer that makes the pages fly and the kind of friend readers will wish they had growing up.” —Hannah Tinti, ALA Alex Award-winning auth or of The Good Thief
