Next week: ‘Summer of the Gypsy Moths’
“Summer of the Gypsy Moths” by Sara Pennypacker. Ages 8 to 12. This is a story of two very unlikely friends: Stella, who wants more than anything to live with her great-aunt on Cape Cod, and Angel, the foster child whom that aunt has taken into her home. At first it seems as if the two girls have less than nothing in common, but over the course of one remarkable summer at the beach, they learn how the desire to be part of a family can unite them.
