Emma's sister is missing. Her parents have lost everything trying to find her. And now the family must live in a trailer park that's home to down-and-out harpies, hags, trolls...and a one-eyed, smooth-talking cat. Jack becomes Emma's best - her only - friend. Imagine Emma's surprise when she discovers that she, too, has cat magic; that she has claws!
She's going to need them to make her way through the enchanted forest. Because somewhere in there is her sister. To rescue her, Emma must face powerful faeries in their lair. Is her cat magic strong enough to best them? Is she brave enough for the fight? How can she know what's real in this fantasy world? Hardest of all, how will Emma decide between her sister's happiness and her own?
A contemporary fairytale as irresistible as catnip.
