A Bitter Magic by Roderick Towny - OPTIONAL

Townley, Roderick A Bitter Magic, 293 pages.  Knopf (Random), 2015 pages.  Content: G.

Cisley’s mother disappeared from the stage at a magic show.  Now Cisley lives in a remote, creepy castle with her aloof uncle.  When she meets Cole, a local boy, she finds someone who believes her when she looks throughout the odd castle in order to find clues to her mother’s disappearance.  Did I mention that Cisley has a pet lobster that she takes for walks on the beach?

Townley’s novels take a very particular type of reader to enjoy them.  If you have a large, voracious set of readers, there may be someone in your clientele who will enjoy this.
