A Girl's Guide To Love and Magic Cover Reveal

Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal to share with you today. A Girl's Guide To Love and Magic by Debbie Rigaud is a new young adult novel that is a celebration of Haitian and Caribbean culture. This story of first love, vodou, and finding yourself, is set against the backdrop of the West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn. The cover is so glorious I had to list the front and back images.


Synopsis:

Cicely Destin lives for the West Indian Day Parade, the joyous celebration of Caribbean culture that takes over the streets of her neighborhood. She loves waving the Haitian flag, sampling delicious foods, and cheering for the floats. And this year? She’ll get to hang with her stylish aunt, an influencer known for dabbling in Haitian Vodou.


And maybe spot her dreamy crush, Kwame, in the crowd.


But fate has other ideas. Before the parade, a rogue, mischievous spirit seems to take possession of Cicely's aunt during a spiritual reading. Cicely hardly knows anything about Vodou, or how to get someone un-possessed. But it’s up to her to set things right--and the clock is ticking. She'll have to enlist the help of her quick-thinking best friend, Renee, and, as luck would have it...Kwame.


Cicely, her friends, and the reckless spirit who is now their charge set off on a thrilling scavenger hunt to gather the ceremonial items they need. And along the way, will Cicely discover surprising powers of her on?
