A Family’s Moonshine Has Magic Powers in Kate Karyus Quinn’s DOWN WITH THE SHINE

Kate Karyus Quinn writes terrifying fiction (see Another Little Piece) so I can’t wait for this one!

About the book:

Think twice before you make a wish in this imaginative, twisted, and witty new novel from the author of Another Little Piece.

When Lennie brings a few jars of her uncles’ moonshine to Michaela Gordon’s house party, she has everyone who drinks it make a wish. It’s tradition. So is the toast her uncles taught her: “May all your wishes come true, or at least just this one.”

The thing is, those words aren’t just a tradition. The next morning, every wish—no matter how crazy—comes true. And most of them turn out bad. But once granted, a wish can’t be unmade . . .
