Light’s frequent illustrations capture most of the grosser incidents, of which there are a goodly number. A cliffhanger ending isn’t the only sour note in this series opener.

Synopsis

Molly and her family have moved around for years. Every time they think they've found a home, one of the Quirks slips up and sends them packing -- because the Quirk family is a bit, well, quirky. Each family member has a magical power that makes them unique, and highly unusual.

Mom can control minds; Grandpa twists time; Molly's twin sister Penelope has an all-too-real imagination; and Finn is the pesky kid brother -- who happens to be invisible. Then there's Molly, the most unusual Quirk of all. Molly is completely, utterly normal.

Molly's greatest desire is to fit in, and she's found the perfect spot: Normal, Michigan. With its cookie cutter houses, welcoming committees, and all-town competitions, it seems like just the place for an ordinary new life. But the Quirks aren't known for fitting in -- especially in a place like Normal...
