The Girl Who Drank the Moon
By: Kelly Barnhill
My Rating: Five out of Five stars
Fantastical. Magical. Mysterious. Whimsical. Full of Light.
Tragic. Sorrowful. Scary. Dark
Happy. Exciting. Fun.
The Girl Who Drank the Moon was a wonderful!
The characters drew me in. The story kept me close. The message sealed the deal.
Now that I’m done, I’m going to start over with my kids. It’ll be a fun one to read aloud.
It’s a bit dark at times, but the only thing that might give an average 10 or 11 year old reader pause is the length. Book loving middle-schoolers, teens, and adults will eat it up.
I see it working well for book groups too.
