Abstract "For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in the 1600s, when Maria Owens was accused of witchery for loving the wrong man. Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the sixties, when the whole world is about to change, Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique. Difficult Franny, with skin as pale as milk and blood-red hair; shy and beautiful Jet, who can read other people's thoughts; and charismatic Vincent, who began looking for trouble on the day he could walk. From the start Susanna sets down rules for her children: No walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles, no books about magic. And most importantly, never, ever, fall in love. But her children will never adhere to rules, and all three are desperate to uncover who they really are. When they visit their aunt Isabelle in the small Massachusetts town where the Owens family has been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong, they begin to understand the truth of who they are. The siblings discover there are family secrets to uncover, as well as secrets they have kept hidden from each other. WHen they move to 44 Greenwich Avenue in New York City, each begins a risky journey as they try to escape the family curse."--Dust jacket.
