When Alice Adelcraft follows a black cat down an alleyway, she finds a street that wasn’t there yesterday. The sign reads “Magic Row,” and the stores have names like “Spellbinders” and “A Witch’s Thrift Shop.” Most intriguing (and terrifying!) of all is the dead body Alice finds behind a dumpster. She’s seen enough of the world to know that if she doesn’t stand up for the teen wizard orphan accused of the murder, no one will help prove his innocence. But, stepping into the Magic Row community means posing as a witch, and being found out means facing a hex so terrible only a rare person would risk it. Will Alice’s choice become the biggest mistake of her life or the best discovery of her lifetime?
