Looking at the Moon

Average Rating:
Rate this:
It's 1943, and World War II is still raging on. Norah and Gavin can hardly wait for August, when they'll be leaving to spend the summer at Gairloch, the Ogilvies' cottage in Muskoka. Norah in particular is looking forward to spending time with the older Ogilvie cousins, swimming, boating ... and having as little to do with bossy adults as possible. The arrival of cousin Andrew is a perfect distraction, especially since, at nineteen, he's handsome and intelligent, and Norah thinks she may be falling in love! How will she survive a summer that promises to be anything but ordinary?

The Sky is Falling, Looking at the Moon, The Lights go on Again. These 3 books have to be read in the correct order to get the full understanding of a 5 year old brother and 10 year old sister being sent to Canada as "war guests" for 5 years. Very well written for anybody from about 10 if a good reader.

This is my FAVORITE Kit Pearson book, and my fav. from the trilogy. Norah's 13 in this (same as mehhh!!!!) and a lot happens... there's romance, suspense, anger, jealously, confusion. Don't worry it's nothing like a soap opera. READ IT ITS AMAZINNGGGG!!!! :D Then again...I'm only a 13-year-old girl. Hope that helped!! :) <3

I love all of Kit Pearsons books, his one wasnt the best though , i liked the other ones better : a handful of time, awake and dreaming, a perfect gentle knight, and the daring game
