This is a great mystery that will lull you in. Roorbach is a skilled and lyrical writer. I was immediately hooked by the main character, Lizard, a young football star who spends little time actually thinking about sports. His relationship with the famous ballerina next door, his parents' murder, and his flaky sister, intoxicate his life and his work. Highly recommended!

Much like the main character, Twig, this magical realism story is sweet and short. Twig has a big secret, and it's not just the secret ingredient in her mom's Pink Apple pie. The town of Sidwell is also plagued by a mysterious monster. A great middle grade, summer read!
