SummaryAdd a Summary
And she would have got away with it too, if it hadn’t been for those pesky sisters! Katherine Ann Stephenson (Kat) was wholly prepared to disguise herself as a boy and escape to London in order to save her eldest sister from having to marry that wretched Sir Neville, thereby keeping the family from financial ruin. Unfortunately, Kat doesn’t get five feet before her two older sisters figure out what she’s up to and put a stop to it. The year is 1803 and Kat’s mother (now long since dead) was once a witch. Thinking on her feet, Kat decides that the next best way to save Elissa is to locate her mother’s magic books and find something useful in them. This plan doesn’t entirely work either, though, since (A) Angeline got to them first and has been experimenting and (B) it turns out that Kat has a very different, very powerful kind of magic of her own that has nothing to do with witchcraft. Now the whole family has been invited to a nearby estate, and Kat has only a little time to outwit various adults, save her sisters, make everything right, and defeat the only villain who has ever made her feel truly powerless.
