Margaret and the Moth Tree review

Like a lot of fictional orphans, Margaret has been passed from relative to relative, knowing that no one really wants her. Those that do let her stay with them for a time definitely don't want to hear her, so Margaret turns into a very quiet little girl. Her quiet ways allow for her to hear things that a lot of others miss, including moths inside of a tree. And those moths want to help Margaret rid her life of Miss Switch, the horrible director of the orphanage Margaret ends up living at. 

If you're a fan of Lemony Snicket, I definitely would check out this quirky read! It's a fun read, with a likable, realistic main character. The cover needs some work (well, really just some COLOR), but the story was cute!
