The Lost Coast

author: A. R. Capetta

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, though they feel like an earthquake to Danny. But Danny didn’t just find the Grays. They cast a spell that called her halfway across the country because 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. Now in paperback with an appealing new cover, A. R. Capetta’s lush, eerie, and imaginative tale overflows with the perils and power of discovery—and what it means to find your home, yourself, and your way forward.

“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.” —Booklist (starred review)
