"...an absolute blast to read. I spent the entire time with an enormous grin on my face. Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer but based in Chinese mythology. What could possibly be better than that?!" - Haley, Book Culture Selects letter, Forever Young Adult, October 2017

— From Happy Halloween from Book Culture Selects


The struggle to get into a top-tier college consumes sixteen-year-old Genie's every waking thought. But when she discovers she's a celestial spirit who's powerful enough to bash through the gates of heaven with her fists, her perfectionist existence is shattered.

Enter Quentin, a transfer student from China whose tone-deaf assertiveness beguiles Genie to the brink of madness. Quentin nurtures Genie's outrageous transformation--sometimes gently, sometimes aggressively--as her sleepy suburb in the Bay Area comes under siege from hell-spawn.

This epic YA debut draws from Chinese folklore, features a larger-than-life heroine, and perfectly balances the realities of Genie's grounded high school life with the absurd supernatural world she finds herself commanding.
