Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

by Grace Lin
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

This is a sweet tale filled with lessons and stories. It reminded me strongly of Three Stories of My Father’s Dragon in the once-upon-a-timeyness of Minli’s adventure. I loved how the characters changed over the course of the story, and how the ending tied it all together: Minli thinks she is going to find the Old Man of the Moon to ask him to change her family’s fortune, but discovers that her actions along the way, and the actions of her family, have made the changes. It’s a story about one of the fundamental truths of life: that the importance is in how you make the journey, not what happens once you get to the end.
