Love is a curse, and to protect her children Susanna Owens sets strict rules her three kids must follow: No walking in the moonlight, no wearing red shoes, and especially, no falling in love. When the siblings visit their aunt in Massachusetts they each learn about the curse cast upon their family and begin a risky journey trying to escape it.



The Rules of Magic is an utterly compelling an exquisitely told story. As the characters grow into adulthood they learn to embrace who they are. It’s a coming of age story filled with angst, triumph, self-discovery and love.  This book is about a lot of things but especially about love.

There is really not much I can say about this book without giving anything away except that it was truly magical.

“I just do the best I can to face what life brings. That’s the secret, you know. That’s the way you change your fate.”
Alice Hoffman, The Rules of Magic
