Salt & Storm
Kulper's debut is a sweeping historical romance about Avery Roe, 16, who thought she would be the next witch of Prince Island and cast charms that keep the whalers safe at sea. That was before her magic-hating mother forced her into a traditional Victorian upbringing and the dull life of a pastor's stepdaughter. While she can interpret dreams for anyone who asks, Avery lacks any hint of how to unlock her magic. But she finds an ally in Tane, a harpoon boy whose tattoos have special powers of their own. Tane believes his magic can help Avery break her mother's spell and change her future forever.
