The Book of Spells
A Private Prequel
After finding a dusty, leather-bound spell book, Eliza forms a secret coven with eleven other Billings girls, disguising their gatherings as a literary society to keep their teachers from discovering the truth. Bonded in sisterhood, they cast spells - cursing the headmistress, giving blisters to boys with wandering hands and conjuring beautiful dresses out of rags.

Eliza realises that magic could bring her everything she's ever wanted… but it could also destroy everything she holds dear. But is it too late to stop what she's started?
