The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is such a beautifully written story with an intriguing plot and interesting characters. My only complaint is the length; I felt there was quite a bit that could have been cut out - a lot of repetition, but worth the read.

I just couldn't finish it. Over 200 pages in, and I find myself not caring - about the characters or the ending. So sad! This one was supposed to be amazing.

Crowning Glory started out strong. I loved the sleepy town of La Luna, Louisiana, with its cast of small town characters. Calla Lily Ponder was a spunky sweet kid who, I believed, was going to have some great adventures. However, Calla Lily-though go ...more
