I have long been a fan of books by Grace Lin. Her children books feature a Chinese theme and include delightful illustrations. I’ve checked out all her picture books from the library and read them to my children.
Now that my children are school age, we have moved on to her novel Where the Mountain Meets the Moon. Set in China, the novel tells the story of a young girl named Minli and her adventures as she seeks to change the fortune of her family. The chapters pass by quickly in this page turner. There was a constant element of suspense that compelled us to keep reading even when we already knew it was pass time to go to sleep. But, what is summer for if not to let the schedule slide a bit.
When the Mountain Meets the Moon is a great summer reading book.
