Allie Jo lives at the Meriwether because her parents manage the hotel. Chase is a guest while his father uses the hotel as a home-base for a series of travel articles about the Sunshine State. And Tara, a mysterious stranger, simply emerges from the water of Hope Springs one moonlit night. As the summer wears on and these three very different characters bond in friendship, Tara's secret is revealed. It's then that Allie Jo and Chase must figure out how to help Tara with a problem/situation that seems insurmountable.
The Summer of Moonlight Secrets is told in three unique voices. Author Danette Haworth has a knack for creating a strong sense of place with a setting that seems almost magical while still feeling within the reader's grasp. This middle grade novel is fresh and thoroughly enjoyable.

The setting is magical: the old hotel has secret passages and is situated by some Florida springs. The writing contains several lovely, subtle metaphors. Haworth handles the 3 points of view (2 in first-person, 1 in third) and tenses (mainly present tense with some reflections written in past) expertly. The dialogue is realistic as well, and the final chapter is especially satisfying in the way it gently reflects the book's opening. The story does include an innocent first kiss between two young teens.
