Summary
Bestselling author Alice Hoffman's bewitching Nightbird is perfect for ages 10-13: love and friendship empower a lonely girl to embrace her uniqueness and discover her strengths. Twig lives in Sidwell, where people whisper that fairy tales are real. After all, her town is rumored to hide a monster. And two hundred years ago, a witch placed a curse on Twig's family that was meant to last forever. But this summer, everything will change when the red moon rises. It's time to break the spell.

Nightbird soars."—The New York Times "Alice Hoffman has a gift for melding magic and realism in a way that makes nearly anything seem possible."—Shelf Awareness, Starred "The mix of romance and magic is irresistible."—Kirkus ReviewsWhat Other Authors Are Saying"I love the way Alice Hoffman creates the most ordinary people and then turns their lives magical. . . . [Nightbird] is like reentering a wonderful dream that you vaguely remember." —Lois Lowry, two-time Newbery Medal–winning author of The Giver
