Cottonwood Hollow, Kansas, is a strange place. For the past century, every girl has been born with a special talent, like the ability to fix any object, heal any wound, or find what is missing. To best friends Rome, Lux, and Mercy, their abilities often feel more like a curse. Rome may be able to fix anything she touches, but that won't help her mom pay rent or make it easier to confide in Lux and Mercy about what's going on at home. Lux's ability to attract any man with a smile has always meant danger. And although Mercy can make enough of whatever is needed, even that won't help when her friendship with Rome and Lux is tested. As Rome struggles to keep her friendships close, she discovers the truth about life in Cottonwood Hollow, that friends are stronger than curses, that trust is worth the risk, and sometimes what you've been looking for has been under your feet the whole time.

This is a great book about friendship and life. Well written, with believable, realistic characters, both primary and secondary. A vivid, tangible setting. Just enough drama, romance, action, and magic without going overboard. I really enjoyed it.

This was lovely. Beautiful character development and diversity and felt realistic esp for a YA novel. Another good book about being female in various circumstances. I now would like to become a mechanic.
