“If you want to talk about Friday Night Lights, then ok”
Truthwitch author Susan Dennard wrote a choose your own adventure twitter thread!
On the morning of your sixteenth birthday, you awaken to a “tap-tap-tap” against the window. It’s dawn; the world outside is foggy, sun-pinked gray.
After rubbing the sleep from your eyes, you blink…and find a crow at your window.
