Review: Do you like edgy, new, and fascinating books? Well Moon Pie would probably interest you! This book is family-friendly, modern, sometimes even sad, but mostly very funny! This book is filled with dreams, and being true to yourself. Simon Mason has written another amazing book!
Eleven-year-old Martha lost her mother. Now she is in charge of everyone because she is the lady in charge in the house. Soon after her mother's death, Martha's father started acting weird. He fell off of a roof, went to the doctor, and he didn't come back that night. It was up to Martha to make her baby brother, Tug's, favorite pie that night. Later, they went to visit Marcus, a friend that is in love with Hollywood and everything about it. Marcus makes a nice jacket for Martha, but for some unknown reason, she hates it, even though she personalizes it. Something gets Martha in a mood! She starts having many tasks that keep getting harder and harder. Martha would like to solve almost all of her problems by baking some delicious pies.
In my opinion, Moon Pie is a brilliant book. It has many descriptive scenes and in interesting ways the book comes alive. If you don't like it at first, I bet that after 50 pages, you will love it as much as I do! Moon Pie contains many spectacular details and it is written beautifully! The plot of this story is so interesting, that I wanted to keep reading and reading. The characters were also so fabulous and entertaining! This story makes a lot of sense and is an interesting read for people that are fascinated by action-packed books! Go to a library and check it out now!
