    A Mixture of Mischief

    Meriano, Anna

    It's spring break in Rose Hill, Texas, but Leo Logrou0144o has a lot of work to do if she's going to become a full-fledged bruja like the rest of her family. She still hasn't discovered the true nature of her magical abilities, and that isn't the only bit of trouble in her life. Her family's baking heirlooms have begun to go missing, and a new bakery called Honeybees has opened across town, threatening to run Amor Azu00facar right out of business. What's more, everyone around her seems to have secrets, and none of them want to tell Leo what's going on. But the biggest secret of all comes when Leo is paid an unexpected visit by her long-lost Abuelo Logrou00f1o. Abuelo promises answers to her most pressing questions and tells Leo that he can teach her about her power and about what it takes to survive in a world where threats lurk in the shadows. But can she trust him?

    Sirin, Allie, and Joss have joined forces with the legendary silver dragon Lysander, the only creature capable of opening portals between the two worlds. But the powerful Lennix clan is following the children's every move and will stop at nothing to capture Lysander.
