At age thirteen Dusie makes the horrifying discovery that she, like her New York artist mother, is a Gorgon—a Greek mythological monster sprouting snakes from her head and capable of turning humans into stone with one angry look.
Still reeling from this revelation, Dusie tries to keep her snakes under wraps. But after a boy she likes in school almost exposes her, she discovers another family secret—just one look from Dusie’s snakes has the power to send someone right into his own personal Stone Age. Talk about “if looks could kill”!
Dusie better figure out how to control her snakes and her rage, and find a way to get her life back—before anything else disastrous happens.
