Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool
Moon Over Manifest

k581marie, July 14, 2012

A wonderful book! Great story about a 12 year old girl in 1936 living in the small town of Manifest, Kansas trying to find out about her father's life 20 years earlier by reading letters, talking to older citizens, reading newspaper articles and investigating the town with her two friends. It includes mystery, history and suspense which all tie together at the end. The reader learns about human interactions, small town dynamics, friendship and love. A YA book that adults will cherish.

This was a wonderful, light, multi-cultural, quick, happy story. In the dark days of winter, it's nice to read a happy book for a change! Families get tangled, misinterpretations occur, but the characters decide to seize the moment. I read this twice....very unusual for me
