Summary
Do you believe in impossible things? Cutie Grackle does. She has to. Otherwise, she'll never be more than a lonely 10 year old in a cursed family.


Cutie Grackle is used to being different-she lives alone on a mountain with her feeble-minded uncle, and when she's not sucking pebbles to trick her stomach into feeling full, she's chatting with a weathered garden gnome for company. But having a flock of ravens follow you is more than just different. Cutie worries the birds are connected to the curse Uncle Horace tends to mutter about. And she's right.

The ravens present her with a fortune from a cookie, and when she touches it she's pulled into a vision from her family's past. It involves the curse and her long-lost mother. The birds offer up a series of objects, each imbued with memories that eventually reveal Cutie must do what her mother could not- break the curse.

Part outdoor survival adventure, part fantastical quest, Shawn K. Stout's The Impossible Destiny of Cutie Grackle is a journey of hope, heart, and a willingness to believe in the impossible.
