The magic of Savvy meets the complexity of When You Reach Me in this "blithe magical puzzle,"—The Wall Street Journal
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.
Lisa Graff adds a pinch of magic to a sharply crafted plot to create a novel that will have readers wondering about fate and the way we're all connected.

"This story, told from multiple points of view, is exactly what it sounds like: a big puzzle that must be figured out a little at a time. In this world everyone has a Talent. Cady, an 11-year-old orphan, has an extraordinary Talent for baking. Her mysterious journey leads her to a family of children who are searching for their own Talents as well as to a mysterious Talent thief and the key to how she became an orphan. Katie Honaker's narration reflects the tone of the story exactly: sweet, sincere, and charming. Her fun reading sounds exactly the way an elementary school teacher would deliver the adventures of Cady and the entire cast of characters. Busy baking noises accompany recipes that are read aloud.
