Description


A group of gifted kids must band together to save their town and a fantasy world from horror-story monsters come to life in Sarah Cannon's imaginative middle-grade novel, Twist...

Eli has a dream. He's going to be the next Stephen King, and he's just created his best monster yet!

Neha has a secret. Her notebook is filled with drawings of a fantasy world called Forest Creeks, and it's become inhabited by wonderful imaginary creatures. But her new friends are in danger . . .

Court has a gift, both for finding trouble and for stopping it. And when she accidentally ends up with one of Neha's drawings, she quickly realizes that the monsters raiding Forest Creeks are coming from Eli's stories.

When these three creative kids come together, they accidentally create a doorway from Forest Creeks into the real world, and now every monster that Eli ever imagined has been unleashed upon their town!

About the Author


Sarah Cannon, author of Oddity, has lived all over the U.S., but right now she calls Indiana home. She has a husband, three kids and a misguided dog. Sarah holds a B.S. in Education. She's a nerdy knitting gardener who drinks a lot of coffee, and eats a lot of raspberries.
She is probably human.

Praise For…


Cannon (Oddity) weaves a sense of 1980s Spielbergian wonder and danger into the cinematic narrative: while handling an array of bizarre creatures produced from the imagination, the kids forge an easy friendship based on creativity over logic. A playful, wry humor tempers the more frightening moments, while Cannon maintains a feeling of urgency and high stakes well suited to middle grade readers." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Wacky and creative, packed with light horror and humor, Cannon’s sophomore novel is a great fit for readers not yet ready for Stranger Things, complete with a Dungeons & Dragons–playing older sister and a monster showdown set in an arcade."—Booklist

"Featuring a diverse group of characters that readers will engage with and a story that is nonstop action, this is a kooky and fun read with tons of imagination." —School Library Journal

Praise for Sarah Cannon's Oddity:

"This book grabbed me from page one. Wild, whacky, and yet utterly believable. You will love Ada and Oddity!" —Sage Blackwood, author of Jinx

"Sarah Cannon is puppet master of this delightfully dark and hilariously creepy debut. Herein, you'll find excitement, adventure, and heart—and I don't just mean the kind you’d be likely to discover, still beating (perhaps even beatboxing), in a jar at the local Oddity grocery." —Heidi Schulz, New York Times bestselling-author of Hook's Revenge

"Readers will be hooked from the first page. . . . Featuring a diverse cast of characters, this fantasy is chock-full of adventure and agency, making it a must-buy and a must-read for most ­middle graders." —School Library Journal

"Utterly endearing. A charming, enjoyable thrill ride with memorable characters, crazy creatures, and a theme about the importance of family." —Booklist
