A Most Magical Girl

A Most Magical Girl

by Karen Foxlee

From the author of Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy comes the story of a most unlikely magical girl set in a world with wizards, witches, a mysterious underworld, and a race against time.

Annabel Grey is a prim-and-proper Victorian girl who has been educated at Miss Finch’s Academy for Young Ladies. For her, magic is the stuff of fairy tales. But after her mother leaves home, Annabel is sent to live with her great-aunts who own (of all things) a magic shop. When the nefarious Mr. Angel demands that her aunts and their cohorts pledge allegiance to his rule and lay down their wands, it’s up to Annabel to brave the mysterious, and often dangerous, Under London to recover an all-powerful wand that will put an end to his dark magic.
