Danny didn't know what she was looking for when she and her mother spread out a map of the United States and Danny put her finger down on Tempest, California. What she finds are the Grays: a group of friends who throw around terms like queer and witch like they're ordinary and everyday, though they feel like an earthquake to Danny. But Danny didn't just find the Grays. They cast a spell that calls her halfway across the country, because she has something they need: she can bring back Imogen, the most powerful of the Grays, missing since the summer night she wandered into the woods alone. But before Danny can find Imogen, she finds a dead boy with a redwood branch through his heart. Something is very wrong amid the trees and fog of the Lost Coast, and whatever it is, it can kill. -Inside cover.

*Starred Review* In Capetta's dreamy, enigmatic tale, a restless teen finds friendship, love, and self-acceptance among a coven of queer witches. Danny arrives in Tempest, California, hoping to escape the wandering energy that compels her out of bed at night, to ditch school during the day, to kiss girl after girl, searching for an elusive peace. She finds the Grays waiting for her, four teenage witches who summoned her to Tempest with a spell to help find their friend Imogen, who disappeared into the redwood forest and returned changed. Imogen isn't the only victim of whatever new, vengeful force has taken root, either; two others are dead. As Danny embraces her dowsing magic, she finds more secrets than the Grays anticipated. Capetta captures the eerie, secretive nature of a town living in the shadow of an ancient redwood forest with poetic language, a nonlinear time line, and shifting perspectives. Readers may occasionally struggle to follow the plot, but the unapologetic characters, diverse in sexual and gender identities as well as physically and ethnically, are the real draw. This is a slow-burning, mystical, and romantic character study about the life-affirming magic of finding a place to belong after being lost for so long. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
