A chisel, a hammer, a wrench. A sander, a drill, a power saw. A laser, a heat gun, a flaming torch. Nothing cuts through the bangle. Nothing I conjure even makes a scratch.

Becoming Jinn 
by Lori Goldstein

I add a blue-glass hurricane lamp to the collection of lanterns on the coffee table. Unlike my birthday party, official Zar gatherings are lit exclusively by candlelight. It’s quite beautiful actually. The upcoming reunion, which we’re hosting, is as official as they get. Laila will have finally turned sixteen, and my Zar will have its full-fledged initiation.

What teasers do you have this week?
