Tina was a little white mouse who lived in the flour pantry. At night when everyone had left the Bakery, Tom baked little cakes especiallyf or her. Tina thought they were the best cakes in the world and nibbled each crumb with squeaks of delight.
She was very clever and Tom taught her many tricks. When he said, “Alley-oop,” Tina turned a somersault. When he said, “Hold,” Tina remained perfectly still. And when he played his music box, Tina danced. Tina loved to dance more than anything else.

Fourteen-year-old Mona isn’t like the wizards charged with defending the city. She can’t control lightning or speak to water. Her familiar is a sourdough starter and her magic only works on bread. She has a comfortable life in her aunt’s bakery making gingerbread men dance.

But Mona’s life is turned upside down when she finds a dead body on the bakery floor. An assassin is stalking the streets of Mona’s city, preying on magic folk, and it appears that Mona is his next target. And in an embattled city suddenly bereft of wizards, the assassin may be the least of Mona’s worries…
