Love Sarah Addison Allen, so when I was browsing a Las Vegas Barnes & Nobles (by myself thanks to my mom for giving me this little treat) and saw this waving at me from the shelf, I instantly picked it up with the intent of reading it. And I was not disappointed!
This is the 3rd book that I have read by Allen and like the previous two, The Girl Who Chased the Moon has a supernatural element. Now I am not very sci-fi-ey, but give me a little bit of magic and I am in. The book's main protaganist is Emily, a teenager who is thrown into the mystery surrounding her mother's past in a little town named Mullaby, North Carolina. The town is full of quirky characters including Emily's grandfather, the town's "giant," whom she has come to live with . With Emily's first foray into the little town, the little secret this town seems to be keeping is alluded to and I spent the whole novel in suspense, waiting for its reveal.
So glad I picked this up!
