When her free-spirited mother dies in a tragic accident, sixteen-year old Alexandra Lee is forced to leave her West Coast home and move in with a wealthy grandmother she’s never known in Savannah, Georgia. By birth, Alex is a rightful if unwilling member of the Magnolia League — Savannah’s long-standing debutante society. But white gloves and silk gowns are a far cry from the vintage T-shirts and torn jeans shorts she’s used to.
Alex is the first in decades to question the Magnolia League’s intentions, yet even she becomes entangled in its seductive world. The members enjoy youth, beauty, and power... but at what cost? As Alex discovers a pact between the Magnolias and the Buzzards, a legendary hoodoo family, she unearths secrets — some deadly — hidden beneath the glossy Southern veneer.
New York Times bestselling author Katie Crouch’s poignant and humorous voice shines in this enchanting and mysterious story about girls growing up in a magical Southern city.
