Summary
From the New York Times bestselling author of Circus Mirandus comes the magic-infused story of a golden gator, two cursed kids, and how they take their destinies into their own hands.

When the red moon rises over the heart of the Okefenokee swamp, legend says that the mysterious golden gator Munch will grant good luck to the poor soul foolish enough to face him.

But in 1817, when TWO fools reach him at the same time, the night's fate is split. With disastrous consequences for both . . . and their descendants. Half of the descendants have great fates, and the other half have terrible ones.

Now, Tumble Wilson and Blue Montgomery are determined to fix their ancestors' mistakes and banish the bad luck that's followed them around for all of their lives. They're going to face Munch the gator themselves, and they're going to reclaim their destinies.

But what if the legend of Munch is nothing but a legend, after all?

Full of friendship, family, and the everyday magic and adventure that readers of Savvy and A Snicker of Magic love, Cassie Beasley's newest middle grade book is another crowd-pleasing heart-warmer--perfect for reading by yourself, or sharing with someone you love.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Many years ago the Montgomery family was involved in the fracturing of a great fate, which has passed through subsequent generations as either an incredible talent or curse. Unfortunately, Blue Montgomery was dealt the fate of always losing, and being left with Grandma Eve for the summer in minuscule Murky Branch, Georgia, feels like his greatest loss yet. Meanwhile, Tumble Wilson Lily's self-chosen hero name is also put out by her family's recent move to Murky Branch, but she's determined to make the best of it by helping Blue break his curse, like a true hero would. As the Montgomery clan descends upon Grandma Eve's in preparation for the blood-red moon a once-in-a-lifetime chance to change their fate Blue and Tumble forge a tight friendship and come to a deeper understanding of themselves. Beasley (Circus Mirandus, 2015) wisely reins in the colorful Montgomerys, ensuring that the story stays firmly focused on Blue's and Tumble's personal journeys. Their adventure into the nearby Okefenokee Swamp is lightly brushed with folkloric fantasy, and while there, choice emerges as a powerful theme. Reminiscent of Ingrid Law's Savvy books, Beasley's sophomore novel is a spirited yarn that shines through its rich characters, evocative writing, and enchanted premise. This will effortlessly ensnare the reader who plucks it from the shelf.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "For generations, members of the Montgomery family have received supernatural "fates" that rule their lives; some are wonderful, such as a powerful affinity for animals, while others are not, such as one's husbands always dying. Blue Montgomery fits into the latter category: his fate is that he is cursed to always lose, no matter the situation. After his father leaves him at his grandmother's house in Murky Branch, Ga., for the summer, Blue is determined to break the curse, even if it means venturing into the Okefenokee Swamp to find a fabled golden alligator named Munch. Eleven-year-old Tumble Wilson, new to Murky Branch and obsessed with being a hero, is immediately drawn to Blue and his bad luck, and she makes it her mission to help him. In their quest to alter Blue's fate, he and Tumble learn that their families are inextricably linked, and that the line between a gift and a curse is easily blurred. Interludes from the wise and intimidating Munch keep the supernatural aspects of the novel at the forefront of readers' minds, while Tumble and Blue muddle through issues of abandonment, failure, grief, and loss. Blue's extended family, many of whom have also traveled to Murky Branch for a chance to change their own fates, creates a vibrant ensemble. Granny Eve is particularly noteworthy; her dedication to her family leaves a lasting mark on Blue, whose father is distracted at best and absent at worst. A tender message about sacrifice-for loved ones and the greater good-underlies this magical story of fate and family. Ages 8-12. Agent: Elena Giovinazzo, Pippin Properties.
