Nightbird

Nightbird - Alice Hoffman YA/ Magic realism/ Anything by Hoffman is a pleasure. This is a about a little twelve year old girl and the curse that has made her brother bear the wings of a lost lover's two hundred year old curse. In typical hoffman style she makes the ordinary extraordinary and the extraordinary ordinary. This might be a bit young for some readers but the story is engaging, well written and satisfying and surprising.
