Editorial Reviews

Review

* "As compelling as Brown Girl Dreaming, as character-driven as One Crazy Summer, and as historically illuminating as Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. A captivating novel that sheds new light on black childhood."―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"....wonderful voices and character interactions, and an evocative cover will draw readers."Booklist

"...a welcome addition to middle school readers."―School Library Connection

"....historical fiction fans may nonetheless appreciate this look at racial tensions in both the South and the North in the World War II era."BCCB

"How High the Moon is at once historical and timely, captivating, and lovely. In Karyn Parsons brilliant hands, I feel like I've traveled a lifetime into the heartbreaking and beautiful south of the 1940s, spent time with Ella, Myrna and Henry and the many other amazing people I've met in this book, then landed back here in the present day having left a part of me behind. So glad this book is in the world."―Jacqueline Woodson, author of Brown Girl Dreaming

"In How High the Moon, Karyn Parson brings the same verve, timing, and emotive brilliance that she brought to the screen. Equal parts mystery, historical fiction, and coming-of-age, this is a story full of warmth and light and drama that will captivate you. That will haunt you. And that will ultimately enlighten you."―Kwame Alexander, author of The Crossover

"A talented, engaging new voice. A brave, compassionate, and lovable heroine."―Jewell Parker Rhodes, author of Ghost Boys

"Parson's sparkling debut grabs us by the heart and leads us by the hand into a painful past filled with revelations, hope, and homecoming. Absolutely Glorious!"―Rita Williams Garcia, author of One Crazy Summer

"A tender and compelling story about loving and belonging. Parsons masterfully takes us on a journey where the political is personal, where the most heartbreaking moments are also profound and beautiful. Ella is a character readers will care about, cry with, and cheer for. How High the Moon is a stunning debut that promises to have readers wanting more and more from Parsons."―Renee Watson, author of Piecing Me Together

"A timeless tale that uncovers family secrets and hidden histories for readers of all ages and backgrounds. Masterfully done!"―Tami Charles, author of Like Vanessa --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
