“Genius! [This] book provides a busy modern woman like me with quick and easy hexes for every irritating person in my life. I have tried a few of them already and am very pleased with the results.” —Lydia Ortiz, illustrator for Teen Vogue and cat hoarder
“With her witty and unreasonably effective debut tome, Val cements her status as everybody’s go-to sorceress. Toss your voodoo doll, you’ll never be at a loss for vengeance again.” —Gaia Cornwall, writer and illustrator of Jabari Jumps and gal-about-town
“Spot on and hilarious. If I were good with hexes, I’d cast one on Val so she’d forget she wrote this and I could take it to my agent.” —David Ostow, award-winning illustrator of So Punk Rock (and Other Ways to Disappoint Your Mother)
"Revenge is a dish best served through these hilarious curses—topless selfies sent to the wrong person, or one lone pube found on your bar of soap. What are you waiting for? Make your shit list actionable!" —Rachel Federman, author of Test Your Dog's IQ:Genius Edition
