Nina Blackmoore has been nursing a broken heart for a year, ever since her fiancée ditched her at the altar. At her best friend’s urging, Nina goes on a date with Morty Gutierrez, a nonbinary, offbeat soul of spontaneity. Their date goes about as well as can be expected of most first dates – awkward and terrible. But when Morty begins developing magical powers at the same time that Nina’s own magic surges beyond her control, Nina must manage Morty’s rude awaking to the hidden magical world, uncover its cause, and face the intensity of their own burgeoning connection. But what happens when that connection is tied to Nina’s power surge, a power she’s finding nearly as addictive as Morty’s presence in her life?

Don’t miss this insightful chat with award-winning author Grace M. Cho as she discusses her memoir, Tastes Like War.
Grace M. Cho grew up as the daughter of a white American merchant marine and the Korean bar hostess he met abroad. They were one of few immigrants in a xenophobic small town during the Cold War, where identity was politicized by everyday details—language, cultural references, memories, and food. When Grace was fifteen, her dynamic mother experienced the onset of schizophrenia, a condition that would continue and evolve for the rest of her life.
Part food memoir, part sociological investigation, Tastes Like War is a hybrid text about a daughter’s search through intimate and global history for the roots of her mother’s schizophrenia.
