Narrator Kathleen McInerney delivers all the heavy tween emotions writer Anne Ursu serves up in this empowering story of magical realism for middle grades. Fifth-grade twins Iris and Lark feel lost when they are placed in separate classrooms for the first time. Outspoken Iris tries to define herself while worrying that no one will stand up for sensitive Lark. McInerney paints the girls with starkly different tones, brash and combative for Iris but soft and vulnerable for Lark. The Midwestern vowels in some of the adult voices complement the Minnesota setting. As items around town go missing, the school-day turmoil the girls face is eclipsed by something far more frightening and mystical. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
