Molly & Pim and the Millions of Stars
I am not sure exactly how I feel about this. The writing itself was lovely - there were several quotes that were just great. But, I am not really a fan of magical realism. I don't want to give anything away but wait happens to Molly's mom is pretty weird. I did like how Molly grew into her own understanding and admiration for her mom. I liked the friendship between Molly and Pim and how things worked out with Ellen. I think, while it may not be something I particularly enjoy, it will find an audience.
By the way - the copy I read had the above cover but when I looked it up I found the cover below much more frequently (Australian original ?) and I like it better.
