Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  National Book Award nominee! The magic of Savvy meets the complexity of When You Reach Me in this "blithe magical puzzle." -- The Wall Street Journal Told in multiple viewpoints, A Tangle of Knots is a magnificent puzzle. In a slightly magical world where everyone has a Talent, eleven-year-old Cady is an orphan with a phenomenal Talent for cake baking. But little does she know that fate has set her on a journey from the moment she was born. And her destiny leads her to a mysterious address that houses a lost luggage emporium, an old recipe, a family of children searching for their own Talents, and a Talent Thief who will alter her life forever. However, these encounters hold the key to Cady's past and how she became an orphan. If she's lucky, fate may reunite her with her long-lost parent. Lisa Graff adds a pinch of magic to a sharply crafted plot to create a novel that will have readers wondering about fate and the way we're all connected. Praise for A TANGLE OF KNOTS "Lisa Graff has created a beautiful world of deliciously interconnected stories that draw you in." --Abby West, Entertainment Weekly [ A-] * "Subtle and intricate, rich with humor and insight, this quietly magical adventure delights." -- Kirkus Reviews , starred review * "Combining the literary sensibility of E. B. White with the insouciance of Louis Sachar, Graff has written a tangle that should satisfy readers for years to come." -- Booklist , starred review "Graff's story has a warmth and gentle humor that, along with the premise, calls to mind Ingrid Law's Savvy." -- Publishers Weekly
