SECRETS. LIES. DARK MAGIC. SUPER-BAD CHOICES . . . THIS IS 
OUR CROOKED HEARTS, A CONTEMPORARY FANTASY "SO PRECISE AND ENTHRALLING THAT THE ONLY EXPLANATION IS THAT ALBERT HERSELF IS A WITCH” (BOOKLIST, STARRED REVIEW).

The suburbs, right now . . .
Ivy’s summer break kicks off with an accident, a punishment, and a mystery: a stranger whose appearance in the middle of the road, in the middle of the night, heralds a string of increasingly unsettling events. As the days pass, Ivy grapples with eerie offerings, corroded memories, and a burning question: What if there's more to her mother than meets the eye?

The city, back then . . .
Dana has always been perceptive. And the summer she turns sixteen, with the help of her best friend and an ambitious older girl, her gifts bloom into a heady fling with the supernatural. As the trio’s aspirations darken, they find themselves speeding toward a violent breaking point.

Years after it began, Ivy and Dana's shared story will come down to a reckoning among a daughter, a mother, and the dark forces they never should’ve messed with.
