*Big Thanks to BookishFirst, Penguin Teen, and the author-Ginny Myers Sain for providing the ARC copy this review is based on. **
The cover of this book is gorgeous, and even more so on the physical copy. The intricate design (including the gator eye) fit this bayou story perfectly.
I read alot, and many times I feel like I have read something with a similar plot or setting before. However, I began reading I could tell that this story is unlike anything I had read before. I was immediately transported to the swampy town of La Cachette, Louisiana as teenager Grey is back in town for the summer and begins her quest to find her missing friend Elora. I was immediately drawn into Grey's story and the story of her friends. All the kids in her friend group (and many of their parent's/family) have different psychic gifts and in fact there town is a known tourist destination as the "Psychic Capital of the World." I loved that the story had a magical element to it, but also made complete sense in the context of the magical location.
I enjoyed the building of the story over the summer and did not see the end coming! I can't wait to see what comes next from Ginny Myers Sain--- I will definitely be reading it!
