Over the Moon by Natalie Lloyd - ADVISABLE

Over the Moon by Natalie Lloyd, 304 pages.  Scholastic Press, MARCH 2019.  $17.

Content: G



Mallie lives a dreary, desperate life in tiny town on Coal Top Mountain.  An insidious dust has covered the skies for almost a generation, blocking out the sky, the sun, and stars.  Mallie slaves each day in the valley below for a meager salary, but one day she finds an ad looking for brave boys willing to risk their lives for an adventure.  This may be just what Mallie needs to quickly earn the money she needs to save her little brother from the mine.  What she finds when she disguises herself and applies is beyond her wildest dreams. And it may just be the answer to returning sunshine and magic to her town.

Lloyd is so good at inserting magical yearnings into her writing!  You can see from the cover what I mean, but it’s even better than you think. Fans of A Snicker of Magic will dive on in.
