I was rather shocked by the plot twist at the beginning of Summer of Gypsy Moths.
At the same time, I thought author Sara Pennypacker did a good job of revealing the thought processes of the two main characters in the midst of it.
The result is a beautiful story of finding a place and allowing yourself time to be a child after growing up too quickly – as well as appreciating someone completely different than yourself.
Highly recommended for late elementary school and up.
