Flower Moon by Gina Linko - OPTIONAL

Linko, Gina Flower Moon, 256 pages.  Sky Pony, 2018.  $16.  Language: PG (6 swears, 0 ‘f’); Mature Content:  G; Violence: G.

Twins Tempest and Tally are rapidly approaching their thirteenth birthday.  Both are excited to spend their summer with their grandpa at his traveling carnival, but something is going sour between the twins themselves.  They know that their mother never sees her own twin sister, Aunt Grania, and they are worried that they will also pull apart.  The sisters will need to listen to each other carefully and support and trust each other like never before, or after this summer they may never see each other again.

The reason for the separation is quite a bit mystical, but works as a metaphor for twins growing up and away from each other.  If they want to remain friends, then they have to work at it.  Another sweet book that will have a small, faithful audience.
