Summary
Sixteen-year-old Elektra Kamenides is well on her way to becoming a proper southern belle in the small Mississippi college town she calls home. That is, until her mother decides to uproot her and her kid sister Thalia and start over in California. They leave behind Elektra's father--a professor and leading expert on Greek mythology, and Elektra can't understand why. For her, life is tragedy, and all signs point to her family being cursed
Summary
Moving from Mississippi to California when her mother and her Greek mythology professor father separate, 16-year-old Elektra, an aspiring proper Southern belle, becomes convinced that her family is cursed and tries to use the lessons of the stories she grew up with to navigate a new life on a houseboat in a small community of immigrants and drifters
