Summary
History is filled with stories of women accused of witchcraft, of fearsome girls with arcane knowledge. Toil & Trouble features fifteen stories of girls embracing their power, reclaiming their destinies and using their magic to create, to curse, to cure - and to kill. A young witch uses social media to connect with her astrology clients - and with a NASA-loving girl as cute as she is sceptical. A priestess of death investigates a ritualised murder. A bruja who cures lovesickness might need the remedy herself when she falls in love with an altar boy. A theatre production is turned upside down by a visiting churel. In Reconstruction-era Texas, a water witch uses her magic to survive the soldiers who have invaded her desert oasis. And in the near future, a group of girls accused of witchcraft must find their collective power in order to destroy their captors. This collection reveals a universal truth: there's nothing more powerful than a teenage girl who believes in herself
