"It was nearly noon when I arrived at the top of the ascent. For some time I sat upon the rock that overlooks the sea of ice. A mist covered both that and the surrounding mountains. Presently a breeze dissipated the cloud, and I descended upon the glacier.

Her curse began when Sable’s dad murdered three kindergarten boys for throwing mud at her and ruining her favorite dress. Then there was Jimmy Thomas, her second-grade crush who moved away after his parents caught him carving her name into his arm. And then there was Mr. Parker, her fifth grade English teacher, who tried to drag her into his car before her classmates called the police.
And then there was Johnathan Lowe, stalking.
Cyrus Montes, breaking and entering.
Jonah Hahn, attempted kidnapping.
Mr. Bolton, attempted murder.
Various men from different tracks of life who all became extremely obsessive over one person: Sable Gardener. After spending twenty-two years studying this phenomena, she knew the only common denominator between these men… was herself. Somehow, any boy or man she liked, no matter how platonically, no matter how familially, ended up willing to kill for her… or willing to kill her.
She was cursed. A witch who turned other people into monsters. It was her fault, so she had to do anything she could to stop it.
