Review: The New England town of Sidwell has a witchy history, and Twig’s family is under a centuries-old curse from that era. Twig’s brother, who has wings and can go about only at night, may have been spotted, fueling oft-whispered rumors about a monster in Sidwell. To protect the family’s secret, Twig’s reclusive mother forbids friendship with anyone or participation in any school activities. That tough restriction is challenged by a budding friendship with her new neighbor, whose family just happens to be descendants of the witch who cursed Twig’s family. Maybe this friendship can undo the curse and bring healing to old wounds.
