Zoe’s never been superstitious, so when she and her best friend Mia have their fortunes read at a carnival, she doesn’t take it seriously. In fact, Zoe mocks the fortune-teller. But the woman gives Zoe a necklace to seal her fortune, and as soon as Zoe puts it on, unexplained things begin to happen to her. Her bike spins out of control, a fire starts in the oven when it isn’t on, and Zoe begins receiving threatening texts and emails. The necklace must be cursed! But when Zoe and Mia return to the site of the carnival, it’s gone! Can they break the curse before something terrible happens?
I am the author of the New York Times best-selling picture book The Littlest Pilgrim along with six other Littlest tales - and more to come! I’ve also written three middle grade novels, a Pixar picture book, and four books in Giada de Laurentiis’s Recipe for Adventure series. My latest project is an illustrated chapter book series called Wild Fairies. I live in Los Angeles where I eat lots of tacos while wrangling my two adorable kids and our crazy dog with my husband, Joe.
