Angus is a brownie. Not the kind you eat, but a magic brownie who is under a curse that ties him to the McGonnagalls. When his human dies, he has to go to the only girl in the entire family who is just the right age. The problem is, she doesn’t live in Scotland. She lives in the United States, where people are barbarians, or so he’s been told. He’s more than a little bit terrified.

Alexi is not prepared when Angus just shows up and starts cleaning all her stuff. She just wants her life to be normal again. But when Angus arrives, the rest of the curse is set into motion and things get really strange. Will Alexi and Angus be able to work together to defeat the curse?   (Oklahoma Children’s Sequoyah 2018)
