She is an immortal gorgona kind of goddessand had hoped Dusie wouldn't inherit the family curse since her father was a mortal, but it looks like Dusie is stuck with it too. Middle school is tough enough without being cursed, and Dusieor Dusssie, as the snakes call heris about to learn that being half gorgon comes with its own set of challenges. She tries to keep her snakes hidden, but when a boy at school nearly blows her cover, Dusie is desperate to figure out a way to control her newfound powers. Growing up, with or without snakes for hair, isn't kid stuff. Full Synopsis
