Now that I am all grown up, I read grown up books. Sometimes. Every now and then. When I feel I must.
Honestly I still love, love, love children’s books. I devour them. Middle Grade, Young Adult, any genre (with a particular love for fantasy.) I don’t even hide it. Right when you walk into my house the first thing you will see is my wall of books. 90% of them are children’s books.
And the books I read over and over are…
Walk Two Moons is middle grade, (bordering on YA,) and it’s beautifully written. It really brings to the surface many of the feelings I experienced as a child; moving, making new friends, dealing with loss and change, chasing mysteries and coming up with all kinds of spooky answers for what we don’t understand. If you haven’t read it, you absolutely should.
