Because of Magical Law, Lexie comes into her powers at fifteen. Because of Aunt Jeanie, Lexie didn’t know magic existed until the night before her fifteenth birthday. So, as she tells Gavon, she has zero frame of reference for how to use magic.
As I talked about last week, magic is like another sense, or another pair of hands. But just like it takes a baby a few months to learn how to form words (and a lifetime to learn all the combinations of how to use them), Lexie has to start step by step until she can wield magic with any sort of expertise.
The good news is, she has her trusty magical primer to help out. I had a lot of fun writing the excerpt and adding them to the book, which I’ve been sharing on Tuesdays on Instagram. Unfortunately, as Lexie finds out, simply reading isn’t enough to help her get a handle on her newfound powers.
But the question is: does she want Gavon to teach her because no one else will, or is there some other reason?
