Molly hesitated. "Are you cursed?"
The girl nodded. "Aren't you?"

Curses aren't real. Magic is only in stories. So Molly Drummond definitely can't be magically cursed. Can she?

When Molly finds herself in a curse-lifting workshop with four magical classmates -- a kelpie, a dryad, a sphinx and a toad -- she’s determined not to believe in it. But it's true that whenever a dog barks, Molly suddenly becomes a small and very fast hare... How long can she keep not believing?

Follow Molly into a world of brilliant magic, unexpected adventure and extraordinary friendship in this first book of Lari Don’s breathtaking Spellchasers trilogy.
