    2.5 stars heavy sigh Danny moves with her Mother to Tempest, California after randomly selecting the location on a map Because that s something that parents let their kids doThere seems to be no rhyme or reason to it, or any reason evident as to why her Mother would up and move anywhere her teenage daughter suggested, but who needs reason The Grays, a group of high school girls, who happen to be queer witches, also live in

    Look if you need a book that has a heart full of fierce love for trees and queer girls just go read this book and dissolve your soul into it It was the witchy tale I really wanted The Curses to be and it s a love letter to intersectional rep there s black, queer, bi, nonbinary, Philippine, fat, and ace It definitely goes for a ethereal style,whimsical and untethered I really felt for Danny I feel like she might ve been undiagnosed

    I received an ARC of this book for free from the publisher Candlewick Press in exchange for an honest review I give this book 3.5 stars which rounds up to 4.I had such high hopes for this book, but it ultimately did not live up to my expectations Let s start with what I did like I liked the diversity There was a lot of sexual lesbian, ace, etc and racial diversity One of the girls was Filipino which I was super happy about since I m Filip

    This novel is indeed about queer witches, that s true, but you should read it ONLY if you enjoy magical realism smothered in purple prose and quirkiness, which I don t Capetta s flowery prose is good, and I don t mind shifting POVs and time lines, even chapters from POV of crows or trees, which are ultimately pointless, don t bother me But this story isstyle than substance a major turnoff for me Realism and relatability are definitely lacking her

    The Lost Coast is the perfect book for the readers who have been looking for an f f, not as male dominated Raven Cycle It s an atmospheric story set in a small town surrounded by magical redwoods, following a group of queer witches.And I loved all of it.The first thing I thought when I finished this book is that sometimes, stories that acknowledge your pain but aren t shaped around it are exactly what you need I ve read many contemporary books that dealt direct

    What a wonderful, queer, west coast story I mean, six queer witches amongst the California redwoods I was already hooked But this story is told in a dreamlike way that mirrors the magic the characters have Each chapter jumps between time periods and perspectives Danny the main character, The Grays the witches, the Ravens, the Trees, the students at their high school, etc , giving a piecemeal account that lowed remarkably organically I spent this book waiting to reread i

    The Lost Coast is an intriguing book in many ways I love occult fantasy, it s one of my favourite genres, and it s great to see some recent books being released that fit into this type of story It also has a wonderful setting California s redwood forests make for an incredible backdrop, and The Lost Coast really embraces it It s a change of scenery from the typical New England tourist traps that serve as settings for many contemporary YA witchcraft novels.While I liked this bo
