Thirteenth Child

Frontier Magic #1

Wrede turns her hand to the Americas, and specifically the Frontiers. Taking place in the mid 1800’s, this is about a girl, whose brother is the 7th son of a seventh son, and she is the 13th child.

Grows up thinking she is somehow bad because of being unlucky number 13, until the family moves west to help expand a college town. This is the pioneer story, like Caddy Woodlawn or Laura Ingals Wilder, with magic. This story ends with Eff, the girl, saving some pioneers by using a non-conventional way with some magic in dealing with some magical bugs. Sounds kind of funny, but this was a good book and I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series as it comes out.
