Serafina's life takes an amazing turn when she is summoned to her great-aunt's cottage to become the new Baba Yaga! But leaving behind her home, her family, and the boy she loves isn't easy. As Serafina grows into her magical new role, she discovers that strangers can ask her one question and she must answer truthfully. It's like a glimpse into a crystal ball . . . but telling the future doesn't always mean knowing the right answers.

E.D. Baker's talent for re-imagining classic fairy tales shines brighter than ever in this adventure about watching what you wish for!

This is a beautiful retelling of the legend of Baba Yaga. Serafina is a sweet and unsuspecting girl that goes to meet her long lost great aunt after receiving a letter about an inheritance. She is unknowingly heading to a lifetime of answering questions as the truth telling Baba Yaga. I had never heard of Baba Yaga until I read this book, and I think that helped me enjoy the story more. The writing is easy to read and entertaining. Getting sucked into this story took zero effort on my part as I was quickly swept away into the imaginary world that E.D. Baker created. This is precisely the type of book that I love and would gladly recommend to middle grade and teen readers. It is clean, engaging, and sweet. It has the predictably happy ending that I was hoping for. Content: clean

I chose this book because I thought it was going to have magic and mythical creatures, and I was right! It was definitely what I expected it to be. There were only a few different things, like the cat and the journey the main character took. It takes place in like the middle ages, and the main character is named Serafina. She inherited something from her great-aunt that completely changes her life, and surprisingly her appearance. She travels all over the land with quite a few unexpected friends. All she wants is to be back to normal. This book is for people who like fiction books. The author is E.D. Baker. It’s also kind of a less intense book, which I really liked. I also liked that it has a lot of traveling in it. I really liked this book and I think it’s best for 6th-8th graders, like me. I strongly recommend this amazing book.

I thought this was a wonderful book. While Serafina takes on an inheritance, and becomes the new Baba Yaga. While she has to answer questions; each question aging her. And Alek is finding ways to free Serafina from being Baba Yaga. I wished it showed Alek's point of view. The ending was holding you to the end. It shows girl-power.
