This is a light hearted coming of age story set during the early 60's. Beverly Moon, the main character, was raised in an orphanage and has always had a love of cars. When she starts building her own hot rod, the fun begins. Along the way we meet her best friends and the bunny she grows to love. We also meet the people that help her learn about her past and become such an important part of her future.
The story is full of life lessons, making it appropriate for younger children. It's also fully illustrated, and kids will love cute Beverly and her friends. Adults will appreciate the retro feel of the book, right down to the font on the chapter titles. There's a poster for the Oakdale Rod-O-Rama I just love!! Of course, hot-rod lovers will beam at Beverly's love and knowledge of classic cars. I'll admit, some of it went over my head, but it didn't detract from the story at all. In fact, there's even a "hot-rod dictionary" at the back of the book. There's also a sneak peek of the next book and I can't wait till it's available, too.
Between the cute story and fantastic illustrations I can't think of anyone that wouldn't enjoy this book. I'm thinking of people I'd like to gift a copy to!
