Compulsion by Martina Boone Simon & Schuster/Simon

Three plantations. Two
ancient curse.
 Three hundred years ago, an ancient spirit cursed one
of the founding families of Watson Island and gave the other two magical gifts
that became compulsions. Arriving for the first time at her aunt’s plantation home, Barrie Watson must uncover the
mystery of why her mother ran away when she was Barrie’s age, what has kept Barrie’s aunt locked on the plantation in isolation ever
since, and the truth behind a generations-old feud that haunts the founding
families. With the help of Eight Beaufort, who seems to know what she wants
before she knows herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her family’s
twisted secrets. What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a
river that turns to fire at midnight, a cousin who isn’t what she seems, and very real enemies who want both
Eight and Barrie dead. Wrapped in mystery, steeped in atmosphere, and haunted
by questions of what it means to be a family, Compulsion is a beautiful
coming of age story that transcends age and genre.
