Spells and Sorcery, book 1 of the Lexie Carrigan Chronicles

“You have magic.”

One sentence. Three words. Four syllables. Enough to change my life forever.

I’m Lexie Carrigan. I live with my aunt and two sisters in a small town in Florida. Up until my fifteenth birthday, I thought I was fairly normal, perhaps a little on the nerdy side. But then my sister Marie materializes a sandwich in front of me and the truth comes out.

I’m magical.

My family doesn’t seem to think it’s a big deal. How can they? My sister Nicole’s magic is limited to potions, and my aunt’s never been good at showing me anything. And forget asking Marie to help.

So when I met this brilliant older guy who also had magic, I thought he might be my saving grace. He has old books and knowledge and seems to know the answer to every one of my questions. Except for one – who is he?

Spells and Sorcery is the first book in the Lexie Carrigan Chronicles, a contemporary clean young adult fantasy series about a teenaged witch, her dysfunctional family, and the mysterious magical man who’s appearance is anything but convenient.
