Moon Over Manifest

Remember this little challenge of mine?

Well it's finally summer, which means time to read real books! Hooray!
Today I finished Moon Over Manifest and it was incredible!
I was at the pool reading and ended up staying for two hours because I couldn't put it down!

It follows a girl during the Depression.
Her dad sends her to a town from his past while he stays behind to work.
While she's in Manifest, she listens to the stories and puts together the pieces from the past.
You feel as if you're bouncing between the Depression and WWI, and you find yourself trying to figure out the puzzle along with Abilene.

There's a reason this book won the Newbery award.
Go read it.
Right now.
No really, go!
You can borrow it if you need :)
