2014 book 90

Margi Preus' West of the Moon
Really an excellent and lovely story about a 19th century Norwegian girl who sort of interprets the events of her life through fairy tales (which really justifies a lot of bad behavior!). I liked the protagonist's determination to escape her lot and head to America, and I thought the relationship with her little sister was very strong. One plot point revealed at the end was mildly upsetting and made me wish for a sequel to clear everything up, but I'm pretty sure this is a standalone. :( A-.
