I promised the first line of Alice Hoffman’s Nightbird, my Tuesday Teaser choice for Friday’s post:
“You can’t believe EVERYTHING YOU HEAR, not even in Sidwell, Massachusetts, where every person is said to tell the truth and the apples are so sweet people come from as far as New York City during the apple festival. There are rumors that a mysterious creature lives in our town. Some people insist it’s a bird bigger than an eagle; others say it’s a dragon, or an oversized bat that resembles a person.”
Whatever it is, “Twig,” the young protagonist is determined to find out.
