Middle grade fantasy historical fiction featuring African-American main characters.

Winna is a firm believer of magic.
When staying with her grandparents while her mother is in the hospital, Winna's little sister, Tupelo, breaks her glasses. Winna is given a part of replacement glasses which just happened to magical glasses.

I was a bit confused as to some of the details. I believe this takes place in the early 1960s, but I fear wasn't clear to me exactly which state it took place. Vandalia? And the spectacles: Winna's grandfather, who had expertise in "Woodoo", gave her the glasses, but they belonged to Winna's grandmother's sister, Estelle, and the family curse was on Winna's grandmother's family?

There are some difficult topic in this: divorce, parental illness, bullying, racism, colorism and a deadly curse!

I like the fantasy bent. The resolution was somewhat satisfying; Don't want to give it away, but even with a fantasy bent, some practical aspects were far-fetched.

Some of the stories were decent, some were confusing and boring. I guess I'd probably read something else by them.

I was really into this book in the beginning, the set-up and characters were so interesting, and nothing like I had ever read before. I got stuck in the middle and gave up because I had a hard time following different characters' over the years, and since the story is told in short vignettes, i stopped caring about any of the characters. I am still giving it three stars since the concept and writing were good.
