Read in April, 2009 — I own a copy

Ha! I just bought this today from the used bookstore around the way. I have to admit being a bit partial to it because the main character has my name.

Sam has to learn the difference between REAL and MOONSHINE in this book, and it's a scary lesson. But the best part is that after she figures out the difference, she gets to KEEP a little bit of moonshine (like the rug that is a chariot drawn by dragons) and also, she knows what is real that the people around her think is moonshine and keeps that, too (even if she tells her daddy otherwise).

I remember this book really making me sad when I was little, even though it has a happy ending. I wasn't really any more clear on what a gerbil is than Sam is, either.

But Bangs was awesome. And Sam was awesome. And the baby kangaroo is awesome, too.
