How High the Moon by Sandra Kring

4 stars
R- 3

Another sweet coming-of-age story that I enjoyed more than I expected.

Interesting reading this right after Saving CeeCee Honeycutt-- similar themes, but very different little girls!

Teaspoon (age 10) is the narrator, and it took me a while to get used to her voice, but I liked her.  She rambles on and on.... gave me a hint of what Boo will be like in a few years. ;)

Even with the young protagonist, though, this is definitely an adult book.

There is a fair amount of language in this one, which I could have done without, but all in all, I enjoyed it.  Recommended. :)
