QUICKSILVER HARVEST

A Pitch Wars 2019 Selection

WILDER GIRLS meets THE DEVOURING GRAY

Sixteen-year-old Wren always knew there was magic in the soil of her farming town, but she never realized the deeper cost of their homegrown miracle, not until the black mercury blight comes to collect. When Wren finds her farm’s prized wheat dying—dripping with eerie quicksilver that corrupts more than just crops—her own brush with the blight leaves her coughing black. Her parents, out helping neighbors, fail to return. Now the only one who can help her save her home and family is the last person she wants to call: her boy-next-door ex. Even as they race against Wren’s infection, mold fuzzes against her teeth and a new whispering voice urges her into the woods. Following it could lead to the blight’s source—and maybe some way to stop it. Yet the more she uncovers about the root of the blight, the more she realizes: destroying it means destroying the magic of her town, including the very farm and home she set out to protect.
