Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

This little beauty was a Newbery honor book for 2009. I have to agree with a friend of mine who recently told me she thought it should have won the medal. When You Reach Me was interesting and had a cool plot, but Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is spectacular. It is moving and has an incredible message. In a way it reminded me of The Tale of Despereaux because of it's profound simplicity. I loved everything about it.

Wow, I can't believe how many books you read per month. You totally blow me away. I read before bed so many times I only get through a few pages before my eyes close. Way to go - I know where to go when I need a suggestion.
