Copper Magic by Julia Gibson

 C O P P E R   M A G I C

       is out in the wild … 

“Julia Mary Gibson’s quiet masterpiece is an effortless alloy of magic and science …  I fell as much in love with Violet Blake’s multi-talented, multi-racial, generous, loving, crazy-flawed family as with Violet herself, teetering on the edge of childhood and maturity just as the Midwest teeters on the edge of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.  Violet’s world swallowed me whole.”

- Elizabeth Wein, author of Code Name Verity
