Love is real in the town of Grimbaud, and Fallon Dupree has dreamed of attending high school there for years. After all, generations of Duprees have successfully followed the (one hundred per cent accurate!) love fortunes from Zita's famous Love Charms Shop to happily marry their high-school sweethearts. It's a tradition. So she is both stunned and devastated when her fortune states that she will NEVER find true love.

But Fallon isn't the only student with a terrible love fortune, and a rebellion is brewing. Fallon is determined to take control of her own fate - even if it means working with a notorious heartbreaker like Sebastian.

Will Fallon and Sebastian ever be able to defy fate and fall in love?

Debut-novelist Kimberly Karalius's charming romance, chosen by readers, writers and publishers for the first list in the new Swoon Reads imprint, will carry you away on a magical adventure full of heartbreak, hope and happy-ever-afters!
