Galathea Georgiana "Thea" Wintrop is the seventh daughter of parents who were each a seventh child -- a double seventh. She was expected to be powerful and talented, but she's flunking magic. Her older brothers tease her and even her younger brother can do magic. But the disappointment in her father's eyes is painful. Her parents have sent her to various summer programs and no one has been able to teach her magic. Thea is afraid that they're going to send her to The Wandless Academy, a last ditch school for people who can't do magic to learn a trade. So, it's a surprise when Thea's father takes her to spend time with a friend, Cheveyo. It's her last chance to learn to work magic.

From official release/information:

From back of book: Great things have been expected of Thea, the seventh child of two seventh children, whose magical abilities are, unfortunately, minimal. Now, with Cheveyo, a mage, Thea has begun to weave herself a new magical identity, infused with elements of the original worlds where Cheveyo and others like him walk. But back home, she attends the Wandless Academy, the one school on earth for those who, like her, have no magical abilities. It is there that Thea realizes she will indeed have to fight, that her enemies are hungrier and more dangerous than she knew. What's more, her greatest strength may be the very powerlessness she has resisted for so long. (Grades 7 and up.)
