A Tangle of Knots by Lisa Graff
(2015-16 Iowa Children's Choice nominee)
Book description from Amazon.com...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.
My 25 cents...If I had to choose again, I'd read this book instead of listening to the audiobook . It made it a little difficult to follow since it does go back and forth with the different viewpoints. I couldn't flip back to see who was telling the story since I listened to it as an audiobook. I did like the story, figuring out how the characters were connected to one another (kind of like living in a small town?!) made it truly like a puzzle-a little mystery element.
