Book Review: The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
Hardcover: 288 pages
Publisher: Bantam (March 16, 2010)
This is an incredibly sweet, quirky story about a girl who comes to live with the grandfather she never knew. After her mother died, Emily is sent to live with her grandfather. Her mother never mentioned the past, so Emily has no idea what to expect when she arrives in town.
Emily soon discovers that Mullaby is a magical place; her grandfather is known as the Mullaby Giant, the wallpaper in her bedroom changes patterns to match her mood, ghostly lights dance in her backyard, and a boy with a mysterious secret promises to tell her why her mother left town so many years ago.
Gave this a 4/5 rating as I really enjoyed everything about the book! Think it's a great light, summer read. The author is incredibly talented, as she made me believe that Mullaby was a magical place. And I so want that wallpaper! *L*
