White Cat (Curse Workers, #1)

White Cat  - Holly Black Sometimes the house just seemed filthy, but sometimes it seemed magical. Mom could reach into some nook or bad or closet and pull out anything she needed. She pulled out a diamond necklace to wear to a New Year’s party along with citrine rights with gems as big as thumbnails. She pulled out the entire run of Narnia books when I was feverish and tired of all the books scattered beside my bed. And she pulled out a set of hand carved black and white chess pieces when I finished reading Lewis.
