    One thought on “Flower Moon”

    1. Do you remember lazy summer afternoons as a child, laying on the grass under the shade of a tree, watching clouds pass overhead? You could hear the leaves rustle above you and feel the wind on your face. A friend was laying beside you and you’d laugh together, deciding what animals the clouds resembled. That’s what the first half of Flower Moon felt like to me. There was a pervading sense of nostalgia and I felt like the words were just washing over me.Tempest and Tally Jo are twelve year ol [...]

    2. This is a sweet book about growing up and letting others grow up too, about sibling relationships and how you must love people in the way where you let them be themselves and do what's best for them, if you truly love them. Tally Jo and Tempest are twins, and they'll soon turn 13. As if the growing differences between them are not enough, there's also this looming family secret to find out. And they'll find out sooner than they want to.It's a sweet tale, although I will admit, it did not hook me [...]

    3. See this full review along with others on my blog at: shesgoingbookcrazyI received this copy from the publisher via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!Release date January 2nd, 2018"I looked up the Flower Moon, after Digger told me what y'all had found, and that's what they call it when the moon is as close as possible to Earth."It's hard to get through a read that you continually wait for something to happen. I'm not kidding when I say that I had to wade to 60% of the book b [...]

    4. You know the average middle age growing up story? Regular kid ends up in an irregular situation and with passion and love fights their way out. You know the one you've probably read it dozens of times by different people. Now do you remember your very first story like this? The one that maybe got you hooked on reading, spoke to your soul or was just perfect to you. Was there anything super special about it? Sadly the answer is probably not. It just happened to be the first time you read a book l [...]

    5. It's easy to fall into your sibling's shadow and I'm sure that's even more true for twins. This is a beautifully written tale that blends magical realism, a family run carnival, first love, sibling bonds, and self-discovery. It was a really quick middle grade read that I think would be cute for young readers. There were some disjointed parts of the book, sections of the family's past that I thought could have been explored, but all in all it was a good read.

    6. Flower Moon is one of those books that once you start reading, it is hard to set down. Fans of magical realism will really enjoy this story that combines elements of magic and coming of age. The carnival setting gives the narrative a perfect backdrop, and the science that is used to describe the strangeness happening between the sisters is one that contains wonderful jumping off points for the classroom.Gina Linko has created a classic bildungsroman in Flower Moon. The story is told from the per [...]

    7. ARC provided by the publisherIdentical Twins Tempest and Tally Jo are approaching their 13th birthday, but are increasingly at odds with each other. Tempest is a bit socially awkward and loves showing off her science experiments at school, which embarrasses Tally, who also misses the fact that the two used to always hang out together. Their parents decide to send them off to their grandfather's carnival for the summer, so the two end up in Georgia with Pa Charlie. While there, Tally starts to re [...]

    8. This went in some very interesting directions, all the more engaging for being unexpected. I loved Tally and Tempest and found all the supporting characters sketched with nuance and uniqueness.But I kept getting distracted by the way the protagonists insisted on interrupting each other and then stomping off right when they needed to listen. I don't doubt 13-year-olds are often like this, but this came across as driven more by a need for dramatic tension than an outgrowth of characterization.And [...]

    9. I wrote this book, and I do think it's great. But right now, I have to give it 5 stars just because of that cover. Isn't it just amazing? It is bittersweet and mysterious and hinting at all the magic that is to come for Tally Jo and Tempest Trimble.Thank you Sky Pony designers for this awesome portrayal of what this book is about. And thank you, invisible Librarian, who put the cover on here for me! You are the best!

    10. Check out this, other reviews, and more fun bookish things on my young adult book blog, Here's to Happy Endings!The first thing that I noticed and fell in love with about Flower Moon was the gorgeous cover on the book.From that beautiful text the title is written in to the purple cover with the moon, Ferris wheel, and the silhouette of the two girls, I honestly think that this is the prettiest book cover I have ever seen. This is the kind of cover that really made me want to read the book even b [...]

    11. DescriptionTally Jo and Tempest Trimble are mirror twins, so alike they were almost born the same person. Inseparable, but more than that. Connected.That is, until this summer. The twins are traveling with Pa Charlie’s carnival just like always, but there’s a new distance between them. Tempest is so caught up in her own ideas, she doesn’t seem to have space left in her life for Tally. And, more than that, Tally’s started to notice there’s something between them. Something real, growing [...]

    12. I received a copy of this book from Thomas Allen & Son in exchange for an honest review.I don't know when this whole circus trend started with books, but I am loving it. It's such a brilliant setting for books, and makes for such magical books. I'm sure that it'll get old sooner or later, but right now it's amazing.This is such a fun book, and a really sweet story about siblings and family, which is another thing that we always need more of when it comes to middle grade fiction. It's a fun s [...]

    13. This one gave me serious A SNICKER OF MAGIC vibes. Gentle magical realism combined with a complex sisterly relationship, plus curses & a carnival setting made for a fabulous read. I adored our two main characters, and the similarities and differences between them, and enjoyed that they were able to be rash & argumentative and make mistakes (like all nearly 13 year olds do!). The writing was beautiful and colourful, and reading this was like drinking hot chocolate on a cold night.

    14. My weakness for circus book lead me to pick this one up. I found it on Edelweiss+ for digital download. Flower Moon is first and foremost, a book about sisterhood. Tally and Tempest are mirror twins. Physical mirror images of each other. They're connected. They're best friends. But their family is cursed. Tempest and Tally's mom and her sister Grania are mirror twins, as well as their mother and her sister. The trouble is that the twins always split up. Tally and Tempest grew up thinking that th [...]

    15. I'm a big fan of Gina Linko's writing and can't wait for Flower Moon's release so everyone can gobble it up like I did! You can read my blurb here: pbsimg/media/DGufs3-XY

    16. This review is also availble on my blog, Read Till Dawn.In the last few years, there has been a surge of quirky quasi-magical books featuring tweens who, more often than not, grow into themselves over the course of the story (often go on a trip) and learn something about themselves/their family that they'd never known before. These books also, for reasons I have yet to comprehend, often have a southern twang to them.This budding sub-genre of books has been very popular, and I've read many of the [...]

    17. Tempest and I were mirror twins; our cells had decided at the last possible moment to divide into two people in the womb. So that meant we shared everything , but flipped. The part in my hair was on the right; hers was on the left. I was right-handed; she was a lefty. That kind of thing.Opposites.Opposites, but more than that: Connected. Intertwined.The same.But things had changed this year somehow; a weird friction had crept in between us.And I didn’t like it.I have to admit that I was initia [...]

    19. Although this book contained magic, it touched on some real coming of age issues that all older children face- holding on and letting go, change, growing apart and growing closer, trust in oneself and others, finding self, and accepting growth and change in the ones we love. This book is recommended by the publishers for ages 8- 12, but I believe the themes in the book make it appropriate for young teens as well. As an adult, I enjoyed it.Although the book was slow moving, the pace was steady an [...]

    20. Thank you to Skyhorse Publishing and NetGalley for providing me with a galley of this book! This was one of the most touching, sweet stories I have read in a long time. The main character, Tally, and her sister, Tempest, are sweet and interesting girls with a lot of depth, and their changing relationship as they grow up is a pleasure to read about. The book deals with some very relatable themes for its intended middle grade audience, and the writing style works well with the story. There is just [...]

    21. My name is Tally, and it's really hard to be near my twin sister. No, no, no It’s the Greenly Curse, so twins in our family are repelled from each other because of the Flower Moon. It's why my mom and aunt haven't seen each other in years, and it's getting worse between Tempest and me. It could become explosive, and I nearly killed my sister while trying to save us! Tempest thinks it gives us other abilities, but I don't know how her wires and technology can help. Even though we're able to com [...]

    22. This book was a sweet and magical read I did this Christmas, really made my holidays more festive. It's very well-written, with beautiful descriptions of the carnival, the mysterious flower moon and the relationships between two girls, with their friend Digger and family. I enjoyed how Tally, from whose POV the story is written, reflected on the changing relationship with her twin sister Tempest as the girls were growing up and discovering their individual personalities and interests. There's ju [...]

    23. Flower Moon, by Gina Linko, is a magical middle-grade read. A coming-of-age story that blends magical realism with family drama & mystery. Twins Tally and Tempest, who have always seemed so alike and close - are feeling different and disconnected. They spend the summer with their Pa Charlie and his traveling circus, and as each day passes they grow more and more distant. There is magic at work - and that magic comes to its climax on their thirteenth birthday, the night of the Flower Moon. A [...]

    25. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this beautiful story. Gina Linko did an amazing job creating the world of Tally and Tempest as they try to deal with more than just turning thirteen. The language used was charming, and the plot was filled with suspense. What a wonderful journey to experience right alongside these characters. Well done.

    26. First book of 2018. I wanted something light and heartwarming and this did the trick. A sweet story of sisterhood, embracing change and supporting each other. Great book primary school students, ages nine to 13. Thanks to NetGalley and the publishers Sky Pony Press for granting me access to this ARC.

    27. CHOICE BOOK 2 QUARTER 3I liked this book a lot because it told a great story about the importance of family. I liked the plot and the theme. I can relate to it because I love my family so much and I would do anything for them. I suggest this book to anyone who likes science or magnets because there are some in there. And I would recommend it to anyone who wants a REALLY GOOD book.-Keira

    28. This pulled me in from the start. The story is just believable enough that you find yourself wondering if somewhere out there are two twins, on a journey of discovery. Although geared for a younger crowd, adults will also really enjoy this story!

    29. Such a wonderful book about sisters. Its fantasy/magic elements serve as a striking metaphor for growing up / growing apart.

    30. This was such a lovely story that felt like YA, despite being listed as MG; I loved that the background setting was a carnival (y'all should know that I love a good circus/carnival setting by now) & I adored the twins in the story, but I do wish we'd had chapters from both of their perspectives. I liked how the plot of this story turned out to be a lot more magical than I first expected it to be & I'd love a sequel!Extended Review: wp/p8MbIo-2pO
