Review by Karen intended for young readersI have a very important tip for you the next time you have a cross country flight and you re looking for the perfect book to keep you entertained make you chuckle make your eyes well up with tears make the time pass ridiculously uickly choose Starry River of the Sky by Grace LinOf course it s always a risk to pack just one book for a long plane ride because what if you hate it from the first chapter and you re stuck reading the Skymall magazine in your seatback pocket instead Not to worry in this case I started reading the book as we sat on the runway and I was hooked right away And once I started I read it straight through until I finished I couldn t even put it down during the take off when I usually close my eyes because I get a headache from the plane going at an angleThe book tells the story of Rendi a runaway boy who gets stuck in a teeny village working alongside a family that owns the local inn While he plots his departure he gets to know the village residents and the mysterious woman staying at the inn and so do you And you ll probably get to wondering Could they all be connected to the fact that the moon is missing and the sky seems to cry What in their history is coming back to haunt them What secrets are they hiding And what are they revealing in the stories they tell to pass the timeVariations on Chinese folk tales play a big role in this book but the story never feels dull OR overly fantastical There s an element of magic but it s really a story about the human heart and how one boy changes the lives of everyone in the townSo what makes this book so good That s actually kind of hard to explain because the book is a uiet sort of book and sneaks up on you Maybe that s part of it it s not loud and big and in your face so it affects you in a much gentler way Since I lurve food I d say it s like a complex blended soup comforting and easy to eat but the you consume the you start tasting and enjoying all the hidden flavors from the ingredients you can t see This review also appears on Kidsmomocom

This is one of those books that makes me feel like an AWFUL librarian All the cool kids like it but I found it personally painful to read I don t know why I usually adore books with an Asian theme even though they are a hard sell at my school Most commenters say this is lyrical and beautifully written which is true but my students never ask for lyrical books My problem what made me take my glasses off and scrub my face in frustration was that not much happened and the minute it did the story was interrupted with a bit of legend with Apparent Deep Meaning I had to read the legend and try to interpret it while just wanting to find out what was going on The only comment I had made about Where the Mountain Meets the Moon was that it seems to young for middle school and maybe this is the case with this book If this sort of book would circulate at my library I would buy it but I just don t see it doing well and I found it so frustrating that I would find it hard to recommendClearly I am completely alone in this opinion
