Author: Hoffman, Alice
ISBN: 9781471124211

Twig is a lonely girl and lives in a remote area of town in New England. Twig loves her Mum totally. However, Twig is not allowed friends as they may discover their secret. Twig has a mysterious brother, who can fly. Twig’s town is rumored to hide a monster. Two hundred years ago, a witch placed a curse on Twig’s family that was meant to last forever. Twig makes friends with two new girls who move to her area and together they discover secrets about Twig's family and their past. A tale of modern folklore, where rumours of a winged beast draw in tourism along with the town's famed apple orchards. Well written but perhaps of limited appeal and for the more thoughtful reader.
