Nightbird by Alice Hoffman
Magic and love, joy and hope, heartache and sorrow and a two hundred year old curse in a small town in Massachusetts where people still believe in witches and monsters encase this lovely tale told by twelve year old Twig. Her mother has forbidden her to have friends, but friends find her and they are the ones who are needed to help to break the family curse. This is a beautiful, lyrical tale for middle grade children ages 8 to 15 or so. I received this book free to review from Netgalley and I highly recommend it.
