More About A Fierce and Subtle Poison by Samantha Mabry
 
 
 
Overview
Legends collide with reality when a boy is swept into the magical, dangerous world of a girl filled with poison.


Everyone knows the legends about the cursed girl--Isabel, the one the se oras whisper about. They say she has green skin and grass for hair, and she feeds on the poisonous plants that fill her family's lush Caribbean island garden. Some say she can grant wishes; some say her touch can kill. Seventeen-year-old Lucas spends summers with his hotel-developer father in Puerto Rico, and he's grown up hearing the stories. When letters from the cursed girl mysteriously appear in his room the same day his girlfriend disappears, Lucas turns to Isabel for answers--and finds himself lured into her strange and enchanted world. But the more entangled Lucas becomes with Isabel, the less certain he is of escaping with his own life.


"A breathtaking story in which myths come to frightening life and buried wishes might actually come true." --Nova Ren Suma, author of The Walls Around Us and Imaginary Girls


"Samantha Mabry's magical debut is both a chilling mystery and a heartbreaking meditation on love, longing, and sacrifice . . . A Fierce and Subtle Poison will get into your blood." --Laura Ruby, author of Bone Gap


"With its sparklingly sinister blend of natural history and magic, of themes that seem both modern and timeless, A Fierce and Subtle Poison gets under the skin."--Chicago Tribune
