This book definitely made my top 10 best books of all time! A complex and compelling storyline plunges the reader deep into the world of Margaret Grey, a normal girl with a not-so-normal talent and how she uses this not-so-normal talent to make some not-so-normal friends.

When the Concerned Ladies Club sends Margaret Grey to the cheery Hopeton Orphanage, all is not as it seems. Instead of a home, Margaret finds herself under the terrifying reign of Miss Switch, the beautiful Matron whose deep-rooted hatred for dregs — unwanted children — is matched by her flair for creative forms of cruelty.
But there is something special about Margaret: her exceptional sense of hearing, which leads her to a mysterious, thorny brush on the orphanage grounds. With newfound bravery and a secret friend, Margaret concocts a plan to defeat Miss Switch once and for all.

"If this were a proper world, beautiful faces would belong to beautiful people.

Good people with kind hearts and clever minds would always have bright eyes and dazzling smiles, and bad people would have scraggly hair and warty noses. That way if you saw one of them coming, you could cross to the other side of the street and avoid them altogether.

But this is not a proper world. In our world, many bad people look quite nice, and many good people are not beautiful at all. Many good people aren’t pretty or cute or even interesting-looking.

A very small girl named Margaret Grey was one of these."

- pg. 1, Margaret and the Moth Tree
