    Summary

    'Hecate digs her nails into her palms and fumes silently as Ada crosses over to the door, and turns back before she leaves. She ducks her head and regards Hecate over the top of her spectacles in a way that makes her feel very much like a recalcitrant ten-year old standing in front of her school headmistress.

    “Pippa Pentangle is your new Glinda for the next two months,” Ada declares with finality, “and you’re just going to have to deal with it.”’

    ***

    Hecate Hardbroom is a respected theatre actress. Pippa Pentangle is a beloved popstar. Ada is exasperated. Everyone is in ‘Wicked.’ What’s the worst that could happen?

    Summary

    She picks up one of the chess pieces and fingers it fondly. “I must admit, I had a bit of a hot head in those days. I believe I told everyone that they probably couldn’t win if they played against me anyway - that the logic was much too complex for them. But if they did dare, I’d go easy on them.”
    “And what happened,” Mildred rests an elbow on the table and leans closer, intrigued.
    “Well, this girl I hardly knew, who never spoke except for in class, but who always got top marks, sat down across the table and informed me that so long as I explained the rules to her, there was no need to go easy.”
    “Miss Hardbroom?!”
    “That’s the one,” says Pippa grinning at the memory.

    ****

    Mildred suffers a heartbreaking loss, but as she grows up she discovers that family comes in all forms.

    Summary

    The whole concept of her is foreign and enigmatic, and Marisa wants to pull her apart and study her beneath a chemist's microlens; she wants to distill her virtue into discreet molecules that can be classified and indexed and mimicked. She wants to dissect and possess every inch of her mystery until she understands that fearlessness too.
