Grace Lin's Where the Mountain Meets the Moon
A friend with a young daughter who likes pretty much all the same books I do recommended this to me, and it was definitely right up my alley. It's a lovely middle-grade tale, about a little girl who goes off to find the Old Man in the Moon to find out how she can change her family's fortune. It's chock full of Chinese folk and fairy tales and it's just super sweet and totally magical. I love stories about stories and this one came together really well. A/A-.
