Moon Over Manifest
by Clare Vanderpool
This is a delightful read that is well-deserving of it's Newberry Medal. It's a wonderful story of family, friendship, hope, hard work, and love, along with plenty of action and mystery... and great characters. This book will appeal to both boys and girls, as well as adults.
The book contains no offensive language, however, there are some mildly frightening scenes, references to alcohol use (the story takes place during prohibition), and a scene of violence (mostly just alluded too) that might be too much for younger children.
Recommended for ages 10 and up
