Maggot Moon (YA)


Book #118 Read in 2014
Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner (YA)

This book is a young adult dystopian book.  It is a "what if" in regards to putting man on the moon...detailing what could have happened in that ended differently.  Standish is a 15 year old who can barely read or write, but he is intelligent (he has a great vocabulary), brave and resourceful....all traits that come in handy in this "Big Brother" like world.  Standish lives with his grandfather; his parents disappeared after his mother was physically abused for speaking out against the government. 

I read this book in one sitting.  The chapters are short and interesting; this book would be ideal for a reluctant reader, especially males.  It flows well and has a lot of action throughout the book.  I recommend it.
