ODD & TRUE by Cat Winters
Expected publication: September 12th 2017 by Amulet Books

WoW_OddandTrue_CatWintersTrudchen grew up hearing Odette’s stories of their monster-slaying mother and a magician’s curse. But now that Tru’s older, she’s starting to wonder if her older sister’s tales were just comforting lies, especially because there’s nothing fantastic about her own life—permanently disabled and in constant pain from childhood polio.

In 1909, after a two-year absence, Od reappears with a suitcase supposedly full of weapons and a promise to rescue Tru from the monsters on their way to attack her. But it’s Od who seems haunted by something. And when the sisters’ search for their mother leads them to a face-off with the Leeds Devil, a nightmarish beast that’s wreaking havoc in the Mid-Atlantic states, Tru discovers the peculiar possibility that she and her sister—despite their dark pasts and ordinary appearances—might, indeed, have magic after all.

  1. This one does sound intriguing and I like the cover with what I presume are the two sisters. And it sounds like it deals with some disability too. That last line makes me wonder what kind of magic they have.

    • Indeed. The sisters look so different from one another, makes me wonder if they also have completely different personalities. Hopefully I’ll get the chance to read it soon!
      Thanks for stopping by!
