They say there’s a monster in Sidwell, Massachusetts. They say it has enormous black wings, and that it flies only at night. Twig, who lives alone with her mother in the house her family has occupied for generations, knows that the stories are true. She knows that it’s up to her to make sure no one gets close enough to their family to guess at the secrets they conceal. But Twig is getting older, and it’s getting harder to hold herself apart from the world around her. Life is meant to be lived, isn’t it? So, when a new family moves into the old property next door, Twig secretly defies her mother to make a friend---and sets into motion a series of events that will change their futures forever…Nightbird is a story of love, of anger, of curses, and of blessings---will Twig’s actions ruin her family’s precarious existence, or will they bring about healing and forgiveness? Read Nightbird to find out.
