Sometimes in the Children's library, we find books we love so much that we pass them around the office like a special type of candy bar. Last week, Miss Marian talked about one of those books, Liar and Spy. This week, the librarians are talking about Summer of the Gypsy Moths!
Summer of the Gypsy Moths is a new middle-grade book by beloved IRead author Sara Pennypacker. Sara's Clementine series was already a huge favorite of the Children's librarians, but her new book is for older readers, grades 4-6. It follows the adventures of two very different girls thrown together under very difficult circumstances.
Stella is living with her Great-Aunt Louise for the summer in a big house on Cape Cod. An independent survivor, Stella won't be at Louise's for too long, she's sure. As soon as her mother stops wandering, Stella will go home. Angel is also an independent survivor, and she's also living with Louise. She's a foster child, but she's sure won't be at Louise's for too long either. As soon as her aunt finds work, Angel will go home. When tragedy comes unexpectedly, will Stella and Angel be able to work together and survive?
