The Cost of All Things

book | Fiction | Apr 2015
World English → Balzer & Bray (Ed. Donna Bray)
A love story, a mystery, a cautionary tale about the pursuit of perfection with echoes of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

What would you pay to cure your heartbreak?
Banish your sadness?
Transform your looks?

The right spell can fix anything...

When Ari's boyfriend Win dies, she gets a spell to erase all memory of him. But spells come at a cost, and this one sets off a chain of events that reveal the hidden -- and sometimes dangerous -- connections between Ari, her friends, and the boyfriend she can no longer remember.

Told from four different points of view, this original and affecting novel weaves past and present in a suspenseful narrative that unveils the truth behind a terrible tragedy. Part love story, part mystery, part high-stakes drama, The Cost of All Things is the debut of an extraordinary new talent.
