Summary of the Book:

Michelle Ruiz Keil’s YA fantasy debut about love, found family, and healing is an ode to post-punk San Francisco through the eyes of a Mexican-American girl.

Seventeen-year-old Xochi is alone in San Francisco, running from her painful past: the mother who abandoned her, the man who betrayed her. Then one day, she meets Pallas, a precocious twelve-year-old who lives with her rock-star family in one of the city’s storybook Victorians. Xochi accepts a position as Pallas’s live-in governess and quickly finds her place in their household, which is relaxed and happy despite the band’s larger-than-life fame.

But on the night of the Vernal Equinox, as a concert afterparty rages in the house below, Xochi and Pallas accidentally summon a pair of ancient creatures devoted to avenging the wrongs of Xochi’s adolescence. She would do anything to preserve her new life, but with the creatures determined to exact vengeance on those who’ve hurt her, no one is safe—not the family she’s chosen, nor the one she left behind.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book gave me all kind of stranges feels all the way through it. It keep me on edge. Xochi is abandoned by her mother and she has terrible things happen to her. She makes her way to San Fran where she meets Pallas. Pallas takes Xochi home with her and her father is a rockstar and several people live there in the house. The girls cast a spell during the Vernal Equinox and it brings a couple of beings. They are said to go after those who have Xochi. There are a lot of pieces and background to what is going on in this book.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
