Dusie has always known puberty was going to be confusing, but she never realized it would be catastrophic. One morning she wakes to find that her hair has become a writhing mass of slithering snakes. Then she discovers the truth about her family: she was named after her long-lost aunt Medusa and they are all gorgons in hiding.
When she wakes one morning to find her hair has been transformed into snakes, finds out she is a distant relative of Medusa, and is told by her mother that she is one of several gorgons-in-hiding living in New York City, Dusie's life takes an unexpected turn as she struggles to come to terms with her new identity and dangerous powers.
Editors Note 1
At age thirteen Dusie makes the horrifying discovery that she, like her New York artist mother, is a Gorgon--a Greek mythological monster sprouting snakes from her head and capable of turning humans into stone with one angry look.
