A wonderful and magical read, give it to your child or read it yourself, neither one of you will be disappointed.
It is a magical coming of age story.
The heroine’s name is Twig. Isn’t that cute?
The book is full of fun and mysterious secrets that increase the tension of the novel.
Cute little Twig is insecure but charming. You want to just give her a hug.
Twig’s insecurity leads to taking control, which is marvelous to experience.
It is a fantastical middle grade book that should be read by lovers of magic and fantasy.
The characters are great.
It might be Middle Grade but it was entertaining for this adult.
It is full of surprises and mysteries, I love that. Things that aren’t what they are, or were what they were.
The book is well written.
