Blue Riley's musician mother died from cancer. Her sister has sold her soul to the devil and run off to fulfill her dreams.  Blue makes a deal with the devil; she trades her musical voice for a chance to find her sister and bring her back.  Armed only with her mother's guitar and a pair of magical boots, Blue sets off across the country to find her sister.  As she travels, Blue finds out about the meaning of family and the unfairness of dealing with the devil. This novel of good vs. evil will keep readers turning the page.  The magical elements are believable and slight, and the characters seem like friends you would want to have.  Two thumbs up for this book! You would like this book if you like… Maggie Steifvater's Raven Boys series.
