I’ve loved every Natalie Lloyd book I’ve read, and this one did not disappoint. In fact, it is probably a tie with my absolute favorite of hers (A Snicker of Magic), which is also my absolute favorite Middle Grade book.
Over The Moon is a heartwarming story of courage and hope and friendship and magic. Its pages are filled with a girl who is gentle and strong at the same time, who never lets the fact that she only has on hand stop her. It has a family that loves each other fiercely. A dust that threatens to destroy everything good and lovely. And flying horses. At it’s heart, it’s a story of believing you can choose your own story, and never giving up. I read it to my daughter at a time when she was recovering from a concussion and having a long, hard week, and the words in this story bolstered her spirit in a beautiful way. I absolutely loved this book, and highly recommend it.
