  • Teen Review: Summer of the Gypsy Moths by Sara Pennypacker

    [Potential spoilers ahead]

    This book, Summer of the Gypsy Moths by Sara Pennypacker, is about a girl named Stella who has been sent to her great-aunt’s house in Cape Cod for the summer. The only problem that concerns Stella is that there’s this foster kid named Angel who’s staying with them for a while. Angel isn’t exactly friendly with Stella, until the great-aunt dies. Stella and Angel didn’t know what to do until the great-aunt’s gardener arrived. They were both scared that they’d lose the nearby cottages that they found out Stella’s great-aunt ran, and now they either have to make up lies to her gardener, or tell the truth and get sent away. Not only that, but they were both concerned they would have to leave behind what they had started, now they have to finish it: together. How will this tragic story end? You’ll have to find out by reading the book.

    I would rate this book three stars because it didn’t really have a lot of excitement, it was pretty much the same type of routine until the very end.

    My tribute to Alina Starkov from Leigh Bardugo's The Grisha Trilogy, a fantastic series of YA novels set in a Russian-inspired fantasy world and a lovely magic system.  I wanted to show her power (and the amplifiers!) rising out of the Volcra but also a little fear that comes with being an accidental heroine.

    Final installment just came out!  Got mine signed by Leigh at the LA Book Release party. *o*  You should pick em up!

    Done in traditional media: pen, marker, color pencil on toned paper (as usual).

    leigh, if you are reading this, nilah, cassie and i would all gladly work on a grisha movie *coughcough*

    OH. MY. WORD. I can’t tell you how much I adore this. Loved seeing the work in progress at the launch but oohhhhhhhh the final!!! Thank you so much for sharing it <3

    Favorite Books: Graceling by Kristin Cashore

    How absurd it was that in all seven kingdoms, the weakest and most vulnerable of people - girls, women - went unarmed and were taught nothing of fighting, while the strong were trained to the highest reaches of their skill.
