Description
The haunting action of The Exorcist set against the same background as Letters to Juliet --the beauty, food, and culture of Italy. New in paperback. Mia is your average American teenager--she struggles with algebra, doesn't get much attention from boys, and has an overbearing Italian-American dad. But when a tortured and vengeful demon possesses her, she learns the truth of her family's heritage. She is descended from a long line of demon catchers from Milan, Italy. Her relatives exorcise the demon from her body, but it manages to evade their capture. With the demon on the loose, Mia is in grave danger. Her uncle convinces her father that she must move to Milan, to the family's home, the only place where she will be safe. Thrust into a foreign culture and alone among strangers who claim to be her family, Mia tries to makes sense of this bizarre new world. But with a powerful demon chasing after her, will she even get the chance? *"The demons themselves are haunting, multifaceted creatures that are both pathetic and extremely dangerous; the evil they project is complex and pain-ridden. . . . [T]he novel's other elements (the food will have readers salivating), is portrayed in exquisite, affectionate detail." - Kirkus Reviews , starred review "The possession that takes place in the opening pages makes it immediately clear that the demons here are no campy, Buffy-styled hellions but rather the old-school type of Luciferean offspring that turned poor Linda Blair's head a full 360 degrees and spawned Rosemary's baby." - The Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books Also available in hardcover (ISBN: 978-1-60684-314-7) and e-book (ISBN: 978-1-60684-315-4) format s.
