About the Book

Description

Ever-superstitious Alex Mills will do anything to avoid a jinx. Picking up pennies, knocking on wood, tossing salt over her shoulder. . . you name it. That is until she steps on a crack and it actually does break her mother’s back. To save her mom, Alex must journey through the end of a rainbow to Haphaven, the world where all of Earth’s superstitions draw their power. On the search for the lucky rabbit’s foot to save her mom, Alex learns that breaking with superstition might be the key to saving her mom, even if it means she could get jinxed along the way.

A Letter from the Creators

But, although this is a book about things like rabbit feet and knocking on wood, we wouldn’t say this is a book about luck. Read More…
