When her free-spirited mother dies in a tragic accident, 16-year old Alexandra Lee is forced to leave her West Coast home and move in with a wealthy grandmother she's never known in Savannah, Georgia. By birth, Alex is a rightful if unwilling member of the Magnolia League - Savannah's long-standing debutante society. But white gloves and silk gowns are a far cry from the vintage T-shirts and torn jeans shorts she's used to.

Alex is the first in decades to question the Magnolia League's intentions, yet even she becomes entangled in its seductive world. The members enjoy youth, beauty, and power... but at what cost? As Alex discovers a pact between the Magnolias and the Buzzards, a legendary hoodoo family, she unearths secrets - some deadly - hidden beneath the glossy Southern veneer.

New York Times best-selling author Katie Crouch's poignant and humorous voice shines in this enchanting and mysterious story about girls growing up in a magical Southern city.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Snail in Danger (Sid) Nicolaides | 2/12/2014

    " I can see why some people don't like this series, but for me it's fun fluffy reading. But because so many of the characters are extremely focused on appearances, it's something you'd probably want to be a little cautious about recommending to actual teenagers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 2/11/2014

    " This is a story about some girls in an elite group who use spells to keep themselves beautiful. One girls has lost her mother but can hear her in the wall of her house and knows she is in the in-between and seeks to release her to get her back from death. She works with Sina to form a plan. Unfortunately, Sina is out to destroy their group and uses this girl to do that. Strong friendships are a part of this story as well as hoodoo and evil. The story kept me wanting to read, but if you are not comfortable with casting spells, dealing with the dead, and voodoo, this book is not a good choice for you. It was a little creepy at times, and a little sad to think that people can't be who they are--- maybe there is a little moral here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carson | 2/5/2014

    " I was privileged enough to get an advanced reader copy of this book. As far as YA fiction goes, I think it's well-written, and the hoodoo aspect was well represented. I live near Savannah, and the history and information incorporated into the stories make it very special. The story was better developed than the first, and it was all in all a pleasant read. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay | 1/23/2014

    " I've enjoyed reading about this world from the very beginning. The sequel to The Magnolia League is every bit as fast-paced and elegant as its predecessor. I highly recommend this book, but only if you've read the first book already. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 1/14/2014

    " I really love the southern atmosphere in this series. Looking forward to the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin (Beneath Shining Stars, I Read) | 1/12/2014

    " Liked it more than the first book. Sort of like if Gossip Girl met Secret Circle. Review to come--review notes written though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria Martin | 12/19/2013

    " Interesting southern sequel featuring debutantes involved in a paranormal mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cat | 12/17/2013

    " Entertaining enough that I read it until the end. But not the super wow that I think it could have been. Great if you're just looking for something fun to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abigail Reagan | 10/11/2013

    " OK, but not as good as the first one. Kinda too much going on and I started getting confused. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 VictoriaSong | 9/25/2013

    " I hope there is a third book and if there is, I'm almost certain it will be called 'Final Ball' ;p "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Autumn Wind | 7/13/2013

    " boring and full of bitchiness. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lexie | 6/18/2013

    " Glad I didn't buy this. It's very different from the first book, and there were several times where i wanted to slap Hayes and Alex around a little bit. Writing definitely was the major issue for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natasha | 3/24/2013

    " it seemed so short. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 1/27/2013

    " Oh yeah, this is a great one too! (Am I allowed to do this??) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzy | 12/1/2012

    " Amazing! Just as good- maybe even better!- than the first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 7/9/2012

    " Another fun light book. If you like hoodoo, the south and multi-generational, magic fueled, cat fights this book is for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nichole | 6/2/2012

    " I really enjoy this series, its so different from the vampire, were, and angel books I have been reading - its a little weird though reading about all of the places in this book since I am from Savannah. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 5/4/2012

    " The story of black magic debutantes continues in this delightful sequel! Katie Crouch is the master of YA novels that are both dark and hilariously fun! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin | 12/31/2011

    " I liked the first one much better. I wasn't too excited about this one. Part of it was that I forgot a lot of book one, and I kept forgetting who was talking because of the alternating chapters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 9/12/2011

    " I really love Katie Crouch's books and i have always looked forward to reading them but this one just didnt keep my attention like the others, and this was the 2nd book in this series of books but i really liked the first one alot better. I do look forward to reading more of hers though! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jezabel | 8/31/2011

    " I'm sure there will be another one and I will be anticipating its release date. Loved it? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thadshiga | 5/18/2011

    " Enjoyed the various characters, the hoodoo culture and the mixture of Southern culture. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Juanita | 5/15/2011

    " I liked it. I had lots of theories about what was going on but none of them were correct. It kept me guessing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachelle | 5/11/2011

    " This book started off a little strangely, and the MC does some things that I really don't like, but the funny parts and plotline were great! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 5/10/2011

    " This book could have been so good, but it just fell really short. It's about Hoo Doo in Savannah, I had such high hopes. And of course, it's the first book in a series. Sigh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erinn | 5/10/2011

    " I almost gave this a 5...wow! Totally got me through jury duty today--I am just a sucker for a good southern gothic YA. Totally reminded of Sweetly by Jackson Pearce, which I also read as an ARC. Highly recommended!! "
